Can this sweater be made in extra large sizes? I haven't done any knitting for some time but this makes me want to start again

Hello! Absolutely, the beauty of this type of sweater construction is that it is knitted from the top down, allowing you to try it on while you are knitting it, During the initial set-up, you are able to tell if you need to add extra stitches in the front; back and/or sleeve areas, and best of all, there are no seams to sew once you are done! I highly recommend the Perfect Fit Seamless Crazy Lace Cardigan online class with Myra Wood. I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoyed and learned from this online class. Good luck and pick up those needles!

Just a question, if I'm not a bolero girl, would I be able to knit the sweater you show here instead? I love your sweater!

Hi Wheatie05, and thank you so much! I'm not a bolero girl either, so when I took this online class I quickly decided I would knit a longer cardigan. That is what's so nice about this type of sweater construction, as it allows you to be in charge of the pattern, rather than the pattern being in charge of you! After I finished the yoke area, and started the body, I just continued with the Feather and Fan Lace pattern until the desired length. I proceeded the same when it came time to knit the sleeves. I don't care for short sleeve sweaters, so I decided to make mine with 3/4 sleeves instead. This type of sweater construction is very liberating!

Hello Cillabelle, Thank you so much!! I have enjoyed this class very much and I'm nearing the completion of the second project from this class. My knitting, unfortunately, has slowed down a lot with the high heat and humidity we have had here in southern lower Michigan. Thanks again, and I look forward to seeing your project very soon!
