Thank you for the free pattern! The cardigan is beautiful and I can’t wait to try it!

I hope you make it Ruby! Don’t forget to post a photo of it on Ravelry so that I can see it.

Looks great! I love the color.

I like this color too El, it’s like a very dark caramel.

Hello, I have a question. I don’t fully understand the directions for Shaping Armhole,
Row 1: Sl st across (2 dc, 2 dc, 2 ch, 2 dc, 2 dc, 2 ch, 1 dc–13 sts).
Does this mean that I should do a whole row around the arm in just slip stitches, then do the double crochet part?
May 9, 2012 at 12:20 pm
Olivia, these directions simply mean that you are going to decrease by 13 stitches to get your armhole. So on your first row under “Shape Armhole” you will not follow your regular pattern for the first 13 stitches. Instead, you will slip stitch across these 13 stitches and then follow the directions for the remainder of the row. Have you ever made a garment with set-in sleeves? This is a pretty standard set of directions for an armhole and most people who make garments would be familiar with it. Again, I have rated this pattern as “difficult”, not because of the armhole but because of the need to focus on what you are doing when you get to the shaping. Your question indicates that you are unfamiliar with a pattern of this nature. Would something simpler be a better choice for you?

No, I have been searching for a while for something I like in a sweater. Not much luck when it comes to a garment for an intermediate crocheter who has never made one before. Most have been pretty bland in design. I just can’t invest time & money on something I don’t like. Sigh…

Hi! I’m having trouble at the armhole, at the end of row 1 I should have 22 shells, but I only have 12, I’ve counted and recounted, and everything leading to this is correct. Do you have any suggestions?
May 14, 2013 at 8:27 am
Adriana, you are correct. I don’t know where I came up with 22 shells. I will correct the pattern. You are starting out with 16 shells on the back and decreasing 2 shells on each side which results in 12 shells. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Whew! I continued working on it, hoping it would work. It’s working up so quickly and nicely, thank you!

Adriana, I think my first error was a typo and then I mindlessly copied it over and over! I’m happy that you stuck with it. :-)

Thanks so much for sharing this pattern. I am almost finished, but i am having trouble with Row 6 on the sleeve (shape cap) Says to sk the 1st 2 dcs, then do pattern to end, and dc in last st. Says i should have 4 dcs on each end, but with the skipping of the first 2 dcs, i’m only getting the ch 3 on each end. Also says to skip 2 dcs, but there’s 5 before the ch 2 space.

Hi Debbie, I’m sorry to say that I am presently camping in the Blue Ridge Mountains and have no phone or internet service. Just stopped at the visitor’s center that has wifi. I will respond more thoroughly on Saturday. Sorry to make you wait. :-(

That’s ok Enjoy the beautiful mountains :)

Hi again Debbie,
I have the cardigan here in front of me and am having a bit of trouble seeing my work now that all the parts have been sewn together, but following the sequence I established in the first 5 rows, I think that row 6 should read: Ch3, (counts as a dc throughout the pattern) sk 1st 4 dc, shell in next 2ch sp, shell in ea ch 2 ch sp to last shell, shell in last 2 ch sp, dc into last dc. You will actually have 4 shells plus 1 dc on ea end. I am sorry about this error and I will go in and correct the pattern. Thank you for calling it to my attention! :-)

Thanks so much.
October 5, 2013 at 8:24 pm
Hi again Carol. Yes that worked out, but the last few rows have me lost now :(
October 6, 2013 at 6:00 am
Ok Debbie, let me take a look and see what needs to be fixed here. I’ll work up a sleeve cap to see what the problem is.
October 6, 2013 at 12:44 pm
Debbie, I spent all morning getting this problem corrected. As near as I can tell, I had inserted copy from another pattern into the sleeve section accidentally. I have revised the whole sleeve cap section and it should be correct on my website as well as on Ravelry. Please print off a new page for that section. When I had gone back and re-worked the cap with my hook, it immediately became obvious that the cap was too narrow. I had been working with two patterns at the same time and I think that I must have gotten them confused. Again, I am sorry for the extra work and frustration that this has caused.
October 6, 2013 at 3:16 pm
Hi Carol. No problem. Thanks again. :)
October 6, 2013 at 5:45 pm
Hi Carol. Me the pain again-lol
I ripped it out back to row beginning on the sleeve. Maybe this is an error, but not sure. From what i understand, Row 5 is the pattern, then Rows 6-8 says work even in pattern (maybe it should read Rows 5-8)?
Then says to work Rows 10-19 = (5,6,7,8..5,6,7,8) consecutively 2 times, but when that’s done, there’s 2 rows left.(should this just be all even, or is there meant to be an increase row somewhere in there?
October 7, 2013 at 8:49 am
Hi Debbie, You are NOT a pain! If it weren’t for nice people like you, I would never be able to make sure that my patterns are accurate. As I mentioned, I seem to have interchanged the files of two versions of this sweater. I went back this morning and corrected the pattern for the bottom of the sleeve. Luckily I did not have to re-work anything because I had it on my computer already! I hope that this helps! I’ve up-dated everything so have a look at version F of the pattern.

Hi Carol.I would love to make this cardigan.Please let me know can I print this out with the corrections on the pattern.
December 28, 2013 at 6:16 am
Olive, I’m sorry to say that this cardigan pattern is no longer available. There were so many errors in the pattern that it became impossible to correct it. I might re-visit this project sometime in the future but for now, it has been deleted. Thank you for your interest.
December 28, 2013 at 8:42 am
Thank you for letting me know.I will keep on searching for one that is similar.
