Beige Cardigan. Done.

Done with the cardigan! Cotton thread #10, hook 2 mm. All charts are for size medium (American - 12, for breast 92 cm).


Original cardigan акщь Chico's.










Bottom part of cardigan and sleeves. I have to redo this one. Arrows mean connecting 2 motifs by making single crochet stitches through last rows of sc of both motifs. Put them together facing each other with right side (RS) and make sc row through both back and front loops of both motifs.

Cardigan.

Sleeve.
Crochet in a loop up to the row marked with oval, then start shaping armhole. Notice, I put chain stitches (ch) from some point to make sleeve wider. There is tc between them. Normally it's just tr (treble crochet) to the top of down square.

  5. What a beautiful cardigan, and you model it so incredibly well. I love the way that you can see a photo of a crocheted garment and make it your own. Truly outstanding crochet! I hope to one day have the confidence to do the same with my crocheted garments - currently I work from other people's patterns.

    1. Not long at all. Sometimes I am afraid to move on because I really don't know what to do, so I just push myself, because I know it always works for me. I just have to take a hook.

  17. Love this cardigan! Unfortunately, I am stuck before I start , On the diagram for the little squares, could you direct me a bit on row 3, green section, at the beginning? It looks to me as chain 16, sl st to make ring...and then I am stuck. I can't figure out how the treble crochet and double crochet are worked. I appreciate this might be more explaining than you have the time and inclination to give, but if you could spare the time , I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much. Rebecca

    1. it's hard to say, since I buy it in bulky 1500 yards balls. I guess something about 500 - 600 g would be enough.

  22. Hi I am a new follower from Australia and admire your work. You are so clever I will definitely try this one. Can you send me the full pattern please. Also do you have a fine crochet bolero pattern?

    1. Hi Lynnell! Welcome to my blog. All I have for this cardigan is in the post. I don't know which bolero you mean, but as you see I don't share patterns from other designers here, it would be a violation of law. Anyway, most of the time there are no patterns for garments from famous designers.
      Good luck with your project!

  23. Dear Natalia,

    This is just the most stunning little sweater I've ever seen. I adore your version of it. I've been piddling with learning crochet as well as knit but this has just lit a fire under me :) I just have to make it. Thank you so much for sharing your method. That is beyond generous.
    Oh and I have to say, my daughter's name is Natalie and I call her Natalia affectionately, which she enjoys!
    Sending you best wishes for your latest project!

    1. Hi Jana,
      Such pattern doesn't exists, unfortunately.

  30. Natalia I'm talking about some explanations such the slip stitch between rectangles , where you insert the hook to make it? and the irregular rectangles in cardigan and sleeve pattern have they a special diagram?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Jana, I am sorry I can't provide detailed instructions. I can suggest to try a few ways and find the one you like, if I understand which ss you are asking about, at the base of treble stitch. If you feel you can do that, just start and find your way. The last chart shows the layout for sleeves, the same circles, rhombuses and rows of dc. Good luck!

  31. Hi Natalia, Beautiful dress! I generally do not crochet using diagram. I’m wondering how all the motifs connect, the diagram says they’re connected by single crochets, but do you connect them as you go or at the end?

    1. As you go: make a sc, take loop of the hook, insert hook in corresponding sc of other circle, pull loop through, repeat.
