Looking for a maternity cardigan pattern
Hello,

I am very new at knitting, but I already want to give a try at a sweater - for myself!! :D I am almost 5 months pregnant and would love to try a hand at making a cardigan I can wear at work since it's always freezing there! I've tried googling for a pattern, but no luck yet. So, anyone know where I may be able to find a pattern or is it difficult to figure out how to modify one??

Thanks!

Thanks for the link Brooke. I saw that one and really liked it, but was looking for a cardigan, something I could wear over a dress to take off/on easily.

I would like to try making that pattern too, just because it looks so purdy!!

Well if the front is open ,Does the size matter? Or is this a case of size does matter!? Could you just use a plus sized pattern? Now I'm wondering. I may need one soon too. ~Brooke

I was just starting to think that, maybe it doesn't matter?? I just saw a picture (no pattern) of a cardigan that just had a tie at the top and 3/4 quarter sleeves, it was really pretty. Of course I can't find the link right now :( I am thinking that's what I need to go for. I'll keep searching!

Thanks!

HEY! What about a shrug....

That way, it could cover your shoulders & arms, and bellies wouldnt matter?

I just saw them make an EASY PEASY one on Knitty Gritty, it was just a rectangle sewn in strategic spots....

Hello again!

Thanks for the suggestion Kelly. I finally found the link with the picture of the cardigan I liked (strangely enough through someone's blog then tracked it down and lo and behold it was the same one!!!

Here it is: http://www.knittingpureandsimple.com/cardi.html --> the green on in the bottom left corner. I think something like that should work well to keep a little warm and gives plenty of room for the bulging belly!!

So, I want to try and find a pattern similar to this one for free and if no luck then try to find a shop to order the pattern from. Anyone seen anything similar to this online? I am almost done with my first finished object (so, is that a FFO??), so I am getting ready for the next! :D[/url]
