Ruffle Me Up

Ruffle yourself up in girly cuteness in this colorful lacey ruffley cardigan!  Made with Lion Brand’s stunning “Amazing” color changing yarn, the cardigans beautiful textured lace panel ruffle is made even more interesting with variations of color in the yarn.  The ruffle gathers at your natural waist to flatter your figure, and is long enough to just cover your bum.  This cardigan can be worn open for easy style, buttoned, pinned, or even with a knitted belt.  This design is a great way to spice up an outfit, and would be just as cute in a solid color for everyday wear.  I hope you enjoy this pattern and when finished prance around and spin in it in girly delight!

This cardigan is knit in one piece from the bottom up, with the arm bands and front panel added at the end.  2 options are included for the panel, ribbed and lace.

    I am in LOVE with this sweater and would love to purchase the pattern. Too bad the pattern does not include my size (2X). I am still new to making garments and am not yet knowledgeable enough to figure out sizing adjustments on my own. I hope you decide to expand your sizing, as this would be very flattering for “plus size” gals.

      Hi Michelle, what is your bust measurement? I would be happy to do additional sizes for the cardigan, just want to make sure I have you covered 🙂

    I’m working on this and am up to the Divide Front Panels from Back section. I’m not coming up with the right counts in this section. I’m making size M & have 141 stitches as indicated at the end of previous section. I see the “note” but I’m still at 141 stitches, but at the end of the Divide section, I’ll have 8 extra stitches.
