This is really a lovely looking sweater pattern. I have made one sweater in my career, and it was complicated. I think I will have to make some more that are less complicate before I try something like this. I think this would be a great pattern for the spring and summer months, since it looks lightweight and has holes in it.

The instructions are a bit confusing and you have to read ahead. You can put the markers on the ends when you arr crocheting the rows indicated. This is a pattern you have to pay attention to and take your timed. It is an unique piece that you won't see replicated. It is perfect for the milder weather here in the south. I love anything with a lacey look and this is perfect. Thank you.

This is really pretty. And yes it's clearly not for a beginner. But if you save it now, you will have it for later when your skill and confidence level rise. I think I may make it for my sister in law for Christmas. She loves hand made items because they are one of a kind.

I really like this spider lace jacket by Red Heart. My question is to any one that has made this are the pattern sizes true to size? I suppose I could start out with the large but I would hate to have to frog to make it the next size up.

Spiders are no friend of mine but the creation of this spider lace jacket is beautiful. I like the way it looks but I would love to have this in a warmer color. At any rate, not matter the yarn hue selected, it will be a beautiful piece to add to anyone wardrobe.

You know I'm not at the intermediate level....yet...but I hope to be there someday. Until then patterns that are beautiful like this one I will save as motivation to keep on keepin' on. The spider lace is soooo delicate. I also love the edging and the open diamond pattern. Thanks for the free pattern!

I can understand why some may think this looks a little dated, but I myself love retro looking things , especially if they are mixed with current style. And this is more fitted than the old fashioned cardigans tended to be. It would look great in any color and I love the spider lace.

Gorgeous jacket to make and have. The project diagram is a little confusing to me with so many sizes and numbers thrown into this one diagram. I love working with a stitch diagram pattern because they are usually more accurate than written patterns. I am curious to see how this works with two different color strands of a cotton thread.

I'm a little confused with the underarm panel. are the 69 doc worked to marker 35 or the 66 marker. Also if starting at bottom right corner How is this underarm?

Hi second chance, For specific pattern questions for this project, I would contact Red Heart's customer service since it's their project. They can probably give you the best suggestions for how to work the underarm panel. I hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I have never heard of spider lace, but I love the look of this sweater jacket made with this stitching. Love the retro/classic look. The perfect accessory to carry around with you for when you go into restaurants or stores that are always on the chilly side. Small enough to carry around over your purse.

Gorgeous jacket I shall crochet in one peice to dispose of seams. The spider pattern stitch is one I am familar with and the project will take at one day to crochet.

Where are the larger size directions

where can i get the tutorial for white spider lace jacket i want to make it for my daughter

Hi Lakshmi, The pattern for this project is right on this page. If you scroll down a little past the main project photo, you'll see all the written out instructions and diagrams. Thank you! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I'm not sure about this one. It seems a little dated. This is what I would think of when I think about patterns my grandma made. Is this coming back in style? They say everything comes back around. Maybe in a different color. It needs something to give it a younger, more updated look.

A lot of crocheted garments look dated to me. This one, by contrast, looks youthful.
