View Full Version : Pattern for "fly away" cardigan?

01-31-2010, 06:39 PM
Seen any patterns for a cardigan, open front sweater that has lapels that drape down to a point at the hem? I've seen them in stores. There are coat length ones also that are nice. Would like to knit one.

http://www.berroco.com has great patterns, lots free and lots to purchase. I know I've seen a sweater like this recently. Knit Picks might also have something like that. Or Lion Brand Yarn. Oh so many places to look!

Good luck!

Here's a few I found, but I know there are more.

Whisper cardigan
Elizabeth Wrap Cardigan

There is one on Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com) called Summer Solstice that is what I think you are talking about. Ravelry is free to join if you aren't a member.

I love cardigans. I just need to screw up the courage to actually knit myself one.

Of course you can knit a cardi, Angela. I actually find them easier than pull overs. Why not begin with one for a toddler. Small things are great. You cast on, knit a few rows and you're done. Almost instant knitting gratification. I'm going to do one that I found by accident from a list from Sue or Jan for something else. It's a free pat. from Garn Studio - # 119 in their new collection. I seem to be having trouble sending links but if you go to their site you'll find it. You might like it. It's knit in 2 pieces from one front edge (no buttons or holes) around to the back then the other side ditto. Only 1 seam in back to join and just B.O for holes to set in a little sleeve. Abundanza!!
