  7. Monica Diggs says:

    Is the pdf ready for this would to add to my library

  8. Hi MOnica, I only have print friendly version right now.

  9. Shannon says:

    Why two pieces for the back , you could just double it and make one piece unless it is for style with the seam . On the model you can see all the open spaces . I am using 6 mm and the same yarn yet mine looks like the swatch under the model . Did you press it to get it to open up thank you for the pattern

  10. For the first row (I’ve chained 52) you say SC across…should I sc in the second chain from the hook and end up with an odd number of stitches?

  11. Hi linda, Thanks for spot on so sc in second chain from hook and each chain across then at the end chain 1 and turn. so u end up with even number.

  12. Josefina Maestre C says:

    Me encanta el crochet, me gustaría obtener los pasos para el cardigan de vacaciones,gracias👍

  13. Sheila Hoffman says:

    Can I single crochet around the front and neck part?

  14. I love this pattern! As I read through the page, I see that moss stitch is used, but not referred to in the pattern itself. Do you mean for each SC to be a moss stitch? Also, if being done in acrylic for a transitional fall piece, do you recommend sport-weight yarn?

  15. Hi Julie, yes I mean we start the foundation chain and then each of sc is moss stitch and they can also use acrylic yarn for make it a bit warmer for winter yep sport weight would be fine.

  16. HI Sheila, yes absolutely you can tweak and adjust for the prettier cardigan. I did not do sc around the front and the neck part because a bit lazy and it look ok just like that for me.

  17. Hi Jane!
    I’ve got half of my cardigan finished and it looks really great. The pattern was very easy to follow. Thank you so much! Love it! 🌸

  18. CJ Johnson says:
