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

As soon as I read it done top down I was sold. I really like patterns like that. Plus I like a lacy sweater, even in winter. It is lighter and you don't feel all that bulk under a coat. This pattern will be perfect. It will look nice with a bit of glitter too. Thank you.

I do not like that when I click on the link that says Click here for crochet pattern it does not open up a website or blog that contains it pattern it only immediately wants me to save a pdf file to my computer. I dont know what is actually contained in that file and whether it is safe. I like to be taken to the site and decide for myself.

What a pretty cardigan sweater pattern! It is so light and airy looking. Certainly almost a vintage look. It will only fit up to a 48" chest with no room for extra movement, so if you are busty this pattern might not be for you. I like all the user pics, too, because it shows how versatile the pattern can be and how it can be customized to suit your own taste.

The other day, I was looking for a crochet pattern for a sweater that I can make for myself. The temperature where I'm currently located is starting to drop and I need a sweater or poncho that is not so thick, just enough to keep me warm when it gets chilly. This Chevron Lace Cardigan comes close to what I have in mind although it looks like I need to customize it to suit my style and preference. I also want to do this sweater in my choice of color. This sweater is alright as it is I'll probably make it a bit longer up to the hipline. Thanks for this free pattern

This is so pretty!

It also makes a great vest!

I absolutely love this pattern and made a few.

I cannot print this pattern in Adobe Reader. All I get is the pictures of the worked pattern, a lot of exclamation marks, some letters such as DC, SC. It is unreadable. It is such a nice looking cardigan, I would enjoy making this.

Carleen, Out of curiosity, I tried the pattern as written in the largest size starting with a chain of 68. It worked perfectly for me; I wound up with 88 stitches after completing the first row. My suggestion is to follow the pattern as written very literally - pay attention to the commas that separate the stitches and when in doubt, diagram. Good luck.

has no pattern only photo

Has the problem with the initial chain been resolved, please

Did you ever find out if this pattern was wrong?

I think there's something wrong with the first row of this pattern. I'm trying to make the largest one. If you chain 68 and follow the pattern, and I even looked closely at the photo to make sure I was doing it correctly, the stitch count does not end up with 88. I even tried doing the HDC, Ch2, HDC in the SAME chain and that doesn't work either. The photo clearly shows each HDC in a separate chain. Is the original foundation chain incorrect? Thanks!

This pattern is in a PDF format, so you will need Adobe Reader to view it. You should have a print option in your menu bar in Adobe Reader. Thanks!
