View Full Version : need sweater pattern

I'm searching for instructions to make a woman's Irish cardigan. I have an ancient Bernat booklet of Irish Knits but the one cardigan in it is very short, and I want one that is longer, as in covering the buns. I've looked in stores and on the internet and can't find anything. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Can you not just make the short one longer, i.e. continue in pattern until you reach the desired length?

I think that a sweater might need to get wider as it goes over the buns (depending on bun size). This pattern looks like it's close to the body as opposed to big and loose. I want big and loose to hide things!!!

Then start for a larger size, increase the length, then decrease a little for the upper part to the size you'd make for your bust or where ever point you don't need the extra width..
