    I am guessing that may be a typo on the length? Says 297 inches, should it be around 29 inches as in your chunky cardigan? Love the pattern and especially that shade of blue!

  2. Super cute!! It says to go 41 inches wide and 297 inches long? Am I reading that right??

  3. Thanks you Kate for spot the typo mistake it 27 inches long.

  4. Thank Fayleen it a typo mistake thank you for spot on it. it was 27 inches long. I just fixed it in the post now.

  5. If you use 7-8 skeins what size do you think that is? I would need XL to 2X.

  6. Hi Kimberly, 7-8 skein will be fit to size xl if you need to make it to size 2xl I calculate will be about 10 skein.

  7. Sharon Williams says:

    Hi I really love the blue lagoon cardigan it is so very pretty, I have not been able to print the pattern off, is there anything you can do to help me.

  8. Hi Sharon, I will add the print friendly version for this pattern soon.

  9. Melissa Mosley says:

    Lovely cardigan. In your pattern, what size does it fit?

  10. Melissa Mosley says:

    Never mind. I see it fits from small to XL. Thanks! How much should I increase the foundation row to make a 2X or 3X?

  11. Hi Melisa,
    The foundation chain is 160 for 2 xl and 180 for 3xl.

  12. How many foundation chains would you use for a small?

  13. Hi Rachel, for small would be 120+2=122 chains

  14. Melissa Murray says:

    Hi! What would the stitch count be after each row? I’m not sure if my tension is off or perhaps I’m adding extra stitches by mistake. Thank you!!

  15. HI Melissa, the number of the stitches count is not an issue. no worry if your add more stitch or less because we are making a kind of a blanket and transform them to cardigan anyway the nature of blanket cardigan if u off by 1 or 2 inch will be fine and they will come out with the good result and pretty. Hope this help ^^. if you finished one would love to see your creation tag me or Instagram.

  16. Sharon Earyes says:

    I’m confused…it says that it should be 41 inches wide but 140 chains is only 38 inches. Will I gain those few inches somewhere?

  17. HI Sharon, my chain is quite loose so 140 chain is around 41 inch. so if your 140 chain is measure only 38 inch the solution is add more chain to get around 40 inch, your one maybe make 152 chain( multiple of 3+2) , or u can go for it for 140 chain at 38 inch but the cardigan will be a little tiny bit smaller which is not much different for the size. hope this help, Let me know how it’s go for u.
