Can't seem to recieve my free pattern!
Given that comments about the size have been made for a year now I guess it's just too bad for those who can't rewrite the pattern ourselves. Yes, you do get what you pay for!!!
I agree re sizes, is anything happening about this?
I would like to see this cardigan in a light colour so I can see the stitch detail.
Would it be possible to provide instructions for larger sizes please, as I am UK size 16-18. Also can you also provide correct crochet hook number?With thanks,
Craftsy why doesn't the designer respond to these questions about size?
I have adjusted patterns to fit me, but it's a pain, to "redesign". Maybe I should become a pattern designer.
And here I am glad to finally have a free pattern in my size.
Also, it seems to me that if you know the stitch gauge (which is given), it's easy to multiply out and adjust the size to your needs. I certainly have to do it on a regular basis to decrease the size of things.
I would have to agree with all the previous comments. 32" bust is hardly an average size!
Can't get it to download
I had difficulty at first, as ipad user. Eventually managed to download the PDF file into one of my book library's today.
I also agree. Nice pattern. Need more sizes.
Craftsy or Be Sweet--you need to rewrite this pattern so that it can be made for larger sizes! Good thing it was free, or you would have some angry customers out here. Please fix this pattern!
Absolutely! It's a loooong time since I was 32" too!
Are there any corrections to this pattern?
English patterns always come in a variety of sizes, you just pick the right one for you. Also the terminology is different so I can't use this pattern. Also I'm a 38"
I totally agree. The least Craftsy could do is to list the sizes on the product page so you'd know whether to buy or pass. I don't even know anyone with a 32" bust! Is this pattern for a child? It's very cute, don't get me wrong, but worthless without other (realistic) size options.
Free patterns must be worth exactly what we pay for them. Nothing! I've never seen a sweater pattern without size options.
Agree with everyone's comments. Dark colored yarn makes it impossible to see the sweater details. But since this is only sized for a 32" bust, I will not be making this sweater anyway. Sometimes I think designers only make things that fit them or suit their own body type, which is a major mistake. The average American woman is 5'4" and wears a C cup. I don't think that's even possible with a 32" bust.
Its a lovely pattern but i echo what everyone else on here have said, shame its for such a small size :(
Cannot make this pattern if it does not have a bigger size option, too bad.
Where is the pattern?
I downloaded the pattern for the Beth Cardigan, but noticed that the crochet hook size was as follows: Crochet hook size yConsidering that this may be a misprint, would the designer be able to clarify the needle size. I am aware that I can keep trying until it looks right, but would like to know what needle size the designer used. Any help out there?
If I were going to make this larger, I would insert an extra plain row here and there between the increase rows. You would also add a few extra rows to the back section where you knit even. Of course that would set the row numbers way off and you would need to keep good notes to make the two sides symmetrical, but that's where I would start.Another option is to use larger needles and go with a more airy lacy look to the fabric.
Since I am very busty, I am going to use the gauge to figure out how to make this larger. since there no schematics, this is going to be tricky. I am going to swatch with some stretchy yars to see what I can come up with.
It is difficult to tell anything from this picture about the detail of this pattern. There should be information in the description that this pattern is stitched side to side, and that the instructions are for only one size (32" bust) with NO suggestions on how to make it smaller or larger.
I love this pattern, but I'm not sure why it's only listed in one size? I would like to make it bigger, but I have no idea where to start! Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!!!
It's a great cardigan, but for the size. I wonder if I should risk it?
I'm wondering the same thing. It is sized at a 32" bust and I'm not skilled enough in patterns to figure out how to make it to fit. Any suggestions?
Same here! Would really appreciate some ideas on how to enlarge pattern.
Really liked the look of this, but not a 32 bust anymore, and not clever enough to start altering patterns, could we have some information on a bigger size maybe?
I guess I won't even bother with it. Too Bad! Thought that it was cute, but haven't been a 32 bust since jr high.
Has anyone downloaded this pattern. I would love to but don't know how?
