Midnight in Paris Cardigan:
The Midnight in Paris Cardigan is a long, draping cardigan. This cardigan is a wonderful way to make a fashionable statement and stay warm on a brisk day. Make it as casual or dramatic as you want it to be by pairing it with comfy jeans and flats or a skirt and boots. Crochet this beauty for a current and stylish sweater you’ll love to wear.
Designed in Malibrigo superwash marino sock weight yarn and a open stitch pattern make this a beautiful layering piece. Choose a lighter color for the perfect spring top. The Midnight in Paris Cardigan is constructed in one piece for the body. With two oversized front panels you have your choice on how to style the cardigan. It can be worn open and loose, tied up, or crossed over in the front.
If you purchase the pattern you will have the choice to work from the written instructions or the charts that are included. The pattern includes full charts to help complete this fantastic sweater.
For those of you have not used crochet charts before I have a YouTube video that can show you how. Head over to my YouTube page to view my ‘Reading Crochet Chart Symbol: Basics, Tips and Tricks‘ video.
Gauge is important:
As in all of the other garments that I make, I highly suggest making a hanging gauge swatch before you get started. This is important to see how gravity will alter the size of your cardigan after wearing it. Starting with a swatch will also save you the headache of making the wrong size before you even start. To make a hanging gauge swatch I start by making a swatch of the stitch pattern that is at least 6 inches square. Then I hang the swatch to a hanger or cloths line and add additional cloths pins to the bottom to simulate gravity. Be sure to take a before and after measurement of your swatch to see what happens to it.
Be sure to add this pattern to your Ravelry Favorites and show me your version of the Accent on Cables Pullover as you finish.
