This sweater is gorgeous, and all of the open work at the top should make it really quick and easy to make. I can't wait to get my hands on some yarn and get it started. I have never read a chart pattern before though. Is there anything I should know before I start or is this a bad pattern for a beginning chart reader? Thanks for the advice!

If you find a pattern and it takes you the Drops site, I promise you you will not be disappointed. This design is just one of the many that I have found and really want to make. Unfortunatley, I have to pear down my list and select only a couple to make. I can not show them off if I am at home making them.

This is one of the most beautiful sweaters that I have seen. Checked out the pattern on the Drop website and I am pretty sure I have enough skills to make it. I really love the long sleeves. The color the sweater is made in is perfect.

I am contantly amazed at the number of really beautiful patterns available free of charge on allfreecrochet.com. This is a really pretty pattern and a lovely light cardi to keep out just the slightest feeling of cooler air. I may shorten the sleeves to three quarter length but that is the only change. It is very feminine and elegant, I just love it!

I recently completed my first project using KD weight yarn and I must admit I was pleased with the outcome. This article of clothing recommends a DK weight yarn and I am very tempted to have a go at this pattern. I really like the combination of the open design mixed with the "shell" design. This piece is lovely.

The midnight lace crocheted cardigan is a winner. Very feminine and light weight so that it can be worn year round when you just need a little something extra to snazzy up an outfit. I have gotten free patterns from Garner Studios website before and have never had any problems with them.

This is a very pretty pattern - and it looks like it will crochet up very quickly.

Now you are talking! I live in Florida. Need I say more? Sweaters are really not something I need very often if at all. So when something like this comes along, you know I will grab it. It's light and airy. Just right for night time use. Done in black with silver or gold seed beads sewn on will make it dressy for an evening out. Thanks for sharing.

I am also in Florida and like your idea. Will upload a photo if I do so.

This is a gorgeous pattern. Really want to have a go, but am really struggling with the chart...the instructions given are just too vague. Would be fab if someone more skilled than myself could translate into full written instructions.
Jul 18, 2014
I also would make this is the written pattern was complete. A diagram to follow pattern 1-3 is not enough for me.

Why is it wanting to charge me? It's listed as a free pattern :(

Jul 21, 2013

started making this pattern, there has to be something wrong. I wanted to make it in Large, the pattern says to chain 241 for just the back alone, this length of chain can wrap around me almost twice, even when I took off 40 chains to try it in the Medium, it was enough to go around me with some to spare. Either the hook size is wrong or the pattern is. Guess that I will look for something else to make even though I love the look of this cardigan.
Jun 23, 2013
241 is the entire body not just the back, I think. And what kind of yarn are you using?
Jul 16, 2013
The pattern states "Cardigan is worked back and forth from opening mid front." So the starting chain should go from mid-front on one side, around the back, an to mid-front on the other side. States that right at the beginning of the pattern.

beautiful! I would make it if there was a step by step tutorial along with written instruction.

Me encantan los patrones pero para los que no entendemos el idioma sera maravilloso que viniesen los esquemas. gracias

I love this pattern, but I've never learned to crochet using symbols. I prefer it to be written out. I guess I'll have to translate it before I can use it. I find symbol crochet very confusing.

You can get the pattern in American-English. Click the pattern link, there will be a link to click on which translates the pattern. The link is in the paragraph directly above the pattern.

Too bad it doesn't come in sizes larger than XL

I have taken the guage and the measurements and enlarged other patterns. just do the math. measure the person that is getting it then adjust. same for making it smaller. practice on a smaller piece enlarging it.
