I just bought 3 skeins of Vanna's choice yarn from a yarn sale the other day and I'm really excited to make something for spring. :woohoo: (I can go out and buy more yarn if I need to. But I really don't want to buy more than 2 skeins later on)

I was thinking of making a fitting cropped-sleeve and cropped-waist lacy cardigan. Y'know, with a ribbed bottom, ribbed cuffs, and a lacy bodice? This is the color I have:

So far, the closest thing I've found was a cropped kimono (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer08/PATTgigi.html) on Knitty. Not so sure about the kimono style sleeves though. :hmm:

I just want a lacy fitted cropped cardigan! If there's no pattern, just give me a formula and a link to a simple lace pattern! :-P I don't usually make sweaters so the armholes will be a doozy for me :???:

Thanks in advance! :woot:

I'm assuming you want free - You'll have to check the gauge of the patterns against your own gauge. I found a lot in lighter weight yarns, but here's a few worsted. I think.

I was actually looking for something that closes under the chest and a little longer sleeves and bodice, but that one's nice too! Anything else?

Try that one in a bigger size than you might normally wear. Sleeve length is easy to change, too.

Also, I found one in a pattern book:

The one on the cover.

You could shorten the sleeves and body on Stella (http://www.berroco.com/183/183_stella.html).
I am going to start mine in a few weeks.
