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

I can't say how darling this sweater is. I made it up for my daughter so of course, it had to be done in a pretty teal. I personally can't wait to crochet one or two for myself. I think it's perfect for a dressy affair, or in the fall with a pair of leggings and boots.

I love the look of this cardigan sweater. So feminine looking. The length is perfect for me because I do not care for sweaters or shorts that go too far below the waistline. It does look very comfy and inviting. Would look great paired with a pair of jeans or a dress or skirt. Sorry I missed the contest. Maybe I can catch the next one.

I made this pattern in a rich plum colour and it worked out perfectly. I love wearing it with an ankle length bohemian hippy skirt that I have had for well on 15 years! However, the cardi is versatile as I wear it to work, with jeans and even over summer dresses.

Im doing the back and it's huge. Im using a 6 mm hook and Aran yarn as it says. The front seems to be ok but the back goes right around me it's so big. Any help or suggestions for me?,

This is beautiful...could it be made longer? Anyone do that?

Absolutely Beautiful Cardigan!

What about Tanalizing Teal Cardigan or Down by the Sea Cardigan. Oh, oh, or Cliffs of Moher Cardigan!

"The Modern Outlander Cardigan"!!! It would be perfect. And it looks like something from the Outlander series!
