Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

If you use the pattern as designed and crochet with the thread, it may take you longer to complete if you were using yarn. However, when done you will have a magnificent piece to add to your wardrobe that will get a lot of wear. Thank you for the free pattern.

This pattern has very detailed instructions. Working with crochet thread is a very complicated form to work with. It takes a lot of practice to get your stitches even throughout the project so that the finished project looks neat and smooth. I think that this pattern should have more pictures of the progress and to show how it looks in the making.

I was reading the comments and I don't care what it is called. It is a pretty lightweight cardigan that will go nicely over an outfit. Working in a office with temperature variations I could use this in summer with the air conditioning and in winter where you just need a bit more warmth. Thank you for printing it.

I do not understand why AllFreeCrochet has to RENAME patterns to suit their needs to grab our attention! Bad bad idea on their part! This is originally published on redheart.com under the name Flutter Cardigan. Plus it is on Ravelry as well so if you have questions head on over there to get other users' opinions that have made this.

Hi Melissa, We have company and blogger permission to rename the projects we share on our site to either help generate a buzz or to get attention to these fantastic patterns and to aid in our promotion efforts. You can always find the original pattern by searching the company site or by right clicking an image and doing a reverse image search. :) Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Oh wow, so gorgeous! Who among us does not LOVE a lovely, comfy beach mat. The colors are fabulous for summer and just looking at this mat makes me wish that summer was coming here in Soutb Africa, instead of winter, lol! Well, I guess there is always next summer to look forward to and here is really good reason to put up with the winter months so that we can get to summer as soon as possible, lol!

This pattern looks intimidating to me. I see it is ranked for an advanced crocheter. I have been crocheting for many, many years and not really sure if I have made it to the ranks of being advanced yet or not. LOL. This is a very cute cardigan. I have not made anything yet with crochet thread so I am curious to find out how well I will do on this project. I do like a challenge.

I just adore working with thread. The details pop out in any patten when using thread. The project does take a little longer to complete but it is well worth it. I have yet to attempt to make an article of clothing and I think this Autumn Butterfly Cardigan may be a little out of my league. It is beautiful though.

Darling butterfly cardigan! This project I will share with my group of friends who meet at place to try new projects.

Hello, I completed all the pieces of this pattern. I also sew the underarms and sides as mentioned in the pattern. I still cannot figure out how to wear this cardigan. I still have to work on the edging and tie. I am so confused and frustrated. I small size as per the pattern, but it looks like it must be a large size. Or as I cannot figure out if my sewing the under arms and sides are correct. Please help.

Hi Snigdhaghan, I'm sorry you're having trouble with this pattern! This cardigan is worn loosely and more openly than most other cardigans, as shown in the photo, but if you'd like to pose your question to our Facebook community (facebook.com/allfreecrochet), I'm certain someone could give you some guidance or suggestions! I hope this helps. Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet
