Aveline Crochet Cardigan Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
This is a gorgeous stitch pattern worked up into two strips and joined together to create a cardigan style top. The waist band, triangular motif, and ties all add to the infinite styling options.
What you will need:
- 650 yds (594.3m) #3 dk weight yarn
1160 yds (1060m) #5 bulky weight yarn
- G/6 (4mm) crochet hook
M/13 (9mm) crochet hook
- Yarn needle
Note: I ended up making 2 samples of this pattern: one is Be So Baby Yarn and one in Be So Easy Yarn. The pattern is written for the Be So Baby Version but the instructions are identical for both samples, minus the lower body band and side seams. The Be So Easy version is worn open as a flowy ruana.
Be So Baby Yarn; 142 yds (130m) per 1.75 oz (50gm); 100% milk fiber, #3 dk weight yarn; color Tutu, 5 balls.
Be So Easy Yarn; 145 yds (132m) per 3.5oz (100g); 100% milk cotton fiber, #5 bulky weight yarn; color Lavender, 8 balls.
This is an oversized vest that can be styled loose and open or cinched closed with the corset ties and belt to fit a variety of sizes.
Each side panel is 22 in (55.9cm) wide x 15 in (38.1cm) long before assembly in the Be So Baby version.
To increase the length of this project, each multiple of 30 stitch stitch pattern will add 8 in (20.3cm) to the length of each panel (folded in half at shoulder line will yield an overall length increase of 4 in (10cm) per pattern repeat addition.
To increase the width of this project, each 6-row repeat of the pattern will add 5 in (7.6cm) to the width of each panel.
