Need a free pattern for a cotton summer cardigan!
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!

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!
