Thanks to my wonderful testers, the Dancing poppies cardigan is now available (in english OR french!)
This cardigan is worked top down in one piece, with hardly any finishing at all.
Instructions are detailed with many step by step pictures. You can either make it without sleeves, or with 3/4 sleeves.
I used a little over 7 balls of Noro Kureyon (shade 138) for mine, in size S. And here are the specs for this pattern :
- Noro “Kureyon” yarn : 5 (5, 6, 7, 8) balls for the sleeveless version, or approx 7 (8, 9, 11, 12) for the 3/4 sleeves version, in color 138.
- 6 mm (J) hook (or size needed to achieve gauge)
Sizing: XS (S, M, L, XL) – Bust: 71/76 (81/86, 91/96, 101/106, 111/116) cm – 28/30 (32/34, 36/38, 40/42, 44/46) inches
Instructions are written for size XS, with other sizes in parentheses. If only one number is given, it applies to all sizes.
Finished width of cardigan at bust level: 38 (43 -48-54-59) cm – 15 (17-19-21 1/4-23 1/4) inches
Gauge: 15.5 sts and 7.5 rows = 10 cm/4″ over double crochet in front loop (dcfl)
NB: gauge should be measured over very slightly stretched fabric.
