Newest favourite cardigan is here! My first big & wearable crochet project was chevron lace cardigan. I posted it here in the blog a long time ago. After the first chevron lace cardigan in brown with Drops Alaska, I made another one using Novita Rose Mohair.
Now, I am very comfortable with the pattern and include my little tweaks. It is a top down pattern that I can try as I make. It is very helpful to try it on when increasing or shaping armholes and make the necessary changes!
Pattern: Chevron Lace Cardigan by milobo
Yarn: Drops Merino Extra Fine in red (uni colour 11), ~ 7 balls
There are a few firsts in this cardigan no. 3 –
- I used DK weight yarn (last 2 cardigans were made with aran weight yarn).
- I extended the sleeves to cover my elbows.
- It is red! My one and only red garment!
This is a very simple and elegant design. I would wholeheartedly suggest you to make one – go to the pattern link above to see pictures, read comments and yarn suggestions from over 2500 other people who made it!
P.S. If you like this cardigan, please pin it. Thanks!
