I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 5 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year.View all patterns by designer (38) »
Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL, 3XL
Needle: 3.25 mm (size 3), 3.5 mm (size 4) knitting needle (straight/circular), 2.75 mm (size C) crocheted hook
Yarn: Fingering weight or double strand lace wight yarn (eg: Rowan 4-ply cotton, double strands of Jaegerspun Zaphyr). Yarn requirement for XS: 1200 meter, S: 1300 meter, M: 1400 meter, L: 1500 meter, XL: 1600meter, XXL: 1700 meter, 3XL: 1800 meter
Notion: Tapestry deedle, buttons (6 pcs), marker, scrap yarn
Gauge: 30 sts and 40 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Stockinette Stitch (St st) using 3.25 mm needle or adjust the needle size to get gauge. I agree that this is not a quick knit. There are a lot of stitches, but if you invest the time and quality yarn, you will get a timeless cardigan to love for years.
Difficulty: Adventurous beginner (you need to know how to do knit and purl, decrease and increase, make button holes, simple cable, short row, and crochet)
