Well, having just completed the Cropped Cardi, I thought I'd vote for that one but THEN I saw the Ms. Darcy (or whatever it was called) and had to vote for that and promptly put it in my own bookmarks.

About the cropped cardi, however, let me just say that it was a GREAT pattern, I loved it, it was very clear and well written and fairly quick to make.

Oh definately Mrs Darcy - I'll be making that postpregnancy for sure, but having said that, do you think the cropped cardi would look any good with a preggers belly sticking out underneath it? I can't make up my mind, so I thought I'd ask an opinion or two as well...

I voted croped cardi, but the spring fling is gorgeous too. I think emerald is too bulky

I like chuncky cardis, so I voted Emerald because it would be the choice for myself out of those 5. HOWEVER, it's heavier than the others, so it all depends on what you're looking for.

Also, you need to take into consideration your body type and also weight- and age-appropriateness. All those others are adorable, but would look horrible on a 40-ish large chested woman
:flirt:no matter HOW much weight I lose, they would still make my chest stick out like a sore thumb and my goal is to de-emphasize that part of my body.

Well, those are the things I need to take into consideration when making such decisions. I don't know if it helps.

I must say I DO love that Mrs. Darcy, I can tell it's the thread reader's favorite too........If it would look good on me, that's the one I would make!

Mrs. Darcy was my first choice, and Hot Lava was my second.

I know, i'm choosing between Mrs. Darcy and Hot Lava, but I think i'll choose Hot Lava.

This is going to be my first knit garment ever ( :woohoo: ) so since the Hot Lava is knit cuff-to-cuff, unlike Darcy which is i think 5 pieces, i thinks its better 4 me

My first choice was the Emerald, because it is bulky and comfy looking, I love the edges. But then I saw Ms Darcy, and I like that one because it is more stylish, I love the sleeves and cuff finish. Not as partical, I guess.

But it should be fun to wear.

Good luck,

Marilynn

Not to throw a big wrench in your plans, but saw this today on Elann's site and thought of your post. It's adorable!:

Thanx, Mrs. Darcy is a little more on the vintage side, i might make it another time.
