Use your yarn from Crochet Society Box 15 to make this bonus cardigan pattern. Step back in time with this cute baby layette, which is inspired by the cobbled streets of lesser-known British seaside towns, where one can visit a tearoom or buy an ice cream.

Hints and tips
Working htr in BLO gives a lovely texture but it can be difficult to see the back loop in htr – stitch markers will help identify the proper loop until the stitch pattern becomes fluent.
Stitch markers will help when working the rib.
htr2tog: [yrh, insert hook in next st, yrh, pul] twice (5 loops on hook), yrh, draw through all 5 loops on hook.
