This weekend, a friend let me dive through her stash, and gave me enough Elann Endless Summer Collection Sonata to make a cotton summer cardigan. But I can't seem to find a good free pattern!

I'm a busty size 14, and I intend to make this cardigan to wear over tank tops in the summer. Any suggestions?

Thank you so much for your suggestions! :muah:

Have you checked at elann? They may not have cardigan patterns for that yarn, but do have quite a few lighter weight ones.

You didn't say long or short sleeve, cropped or longer.. anyway here's a few ideas. Check Knitty as they may have more, too.

I see the yarn weight you have is DK so I'm not sure if these will work or not.

This one (#221) isn't free, but it's only about $5 at most online retailers.

Jan, those are all great suggestions, thank you! I didn't specify cropped/sleeve length/etc because it's not that important to me, I'm open to lots of suggestions.

I really appreciate the links, thanks again!
