I used Yarn Bee Soft Secret that I purchased at Hobby Lobby for this cardigan, but you can use any size 4 medium weight yarn that you wish. A yarn that is comparable in quality, yet cheaper in price, is Caron Simply Soft. I love using Caron for garments and you can find it at pretty much any store that sells yarn.

A fun feature about this pattern is that you can customize the design to your preference! You could work three rows of the “sleeves” and finish off, making this a kimono. Another option is working enough rows of the sleeves to reach your elbow — a great summertime sweater!

You can shorten it by omitting some rows for a cropped cardigan or, conversely, you can lengthen it by adding additional rows to create a duster style garment. Feel free to make this pattern your own.

I encourage you to go through the pattern before you start and circle or highlight the instructions for the specific size you are working on. This will help to avoid any confusion while you work.

The example sweater is an XL. It is not true to size. The cardigan is slightly over-sized and not intended to close in the front. It is designed to hang open.

I hope you enjoy the pattern!

  • The3 puff stitches together in the same stitch are referred to as a“flower” in the instructions. You will be instructed to workinto the center puff st of the flower, which means the 2ndpuff stitch.
  • Thesleeve length can be altered by adding or removing rows according toyour preference.

  • Sizingis written as Small with Medium, Large, XL, 2XL, 3XL written inparenthesis for the foundation chain. I recommend using ahighlighter or circling your size throughout the pattern to avoidconfusion.
  • Touse this stitch pattern for any other project or to adjust the sizeof your panels, you will need a foundation chain (starting chain)that has a multiple of 8 chains plus 2.
  • Irecommend ending on a Row 2 or Row 4 repeat to achieve a flat edgerather than a scalloped edge.

Assembly

Lay Back Panel with Right Side facing up on a flat surface. With Right Side facing down, lay one of the Front Panels on top of the Back Panel lining up the outer corners. Make sure that your Fleur-de-lis motif is facing the same direction on both panels. Place stitch markers to hold the two panels together.

You will seam the two panels together along the shorter top, which will be the shoulder seam. You can use a tapestry needle and yarn to mattress stitch, whip stitch or whichever seaming method you prefer to seam the two pieces together.

Use your measuring tape to measure down from the shoulder seam for your armhole. Mark with a stitch marker. Make sure the stitch marker goes through both panels.

ArmholeMeasurements

Small/Medium – 7”

Large/XL – 8”

2XL/3XL – 9”

Note: You may want to place the shoulder seam on your shoulder and put your arm through the armhole at this point to make sure that your sleeve will not be too loose or too tight and adjust your stitch marker before seaming the side. If you moved your stitch marker, remeasure the distance from the shoulder seam and write it down so that you can use the same measurement for the other armhole.

Using your tapestry needle and yarn, seam the two panels together from the armpit area down the side to the bottom of the cardigan.

Repeat the entire process for the 2nd Front Panel.

Flip your cardigan right side out.

Sleeves– find your size below and follow those directions
