Bron, I have to admit I'm not a big fan of the crocheted cardi, but this looks really nice. I like the neat finish to the closing and yes, the big pin looks great. You could use lots of different ones depending on your mood and I think the cardi would take it well. I think you're very clever being able to make all those modifications. I would probably have frogged and given up long ago. Good for you!! It looks great.


Bron, I really like it. I also like the collar. I like the arms, too how they are baggy. I bet you will get a lot of wear out of this!


I really like how it turned out. I'm not much of a fan of crocheted cardis either, but it looks really nice and I love that pin too. It definitely looks worth the effort.


Yes, definitely worth the effort, it looks very good like this!


Great sweater and lovely pin. It seems as if you had to design it nearly from sratch, though.

Good job by you as always.


Despite all the hassle it came out beautifully. I really like the collar and pin closure.


It looks great!!

The Cardi is beautiful. It makes me want to make one for myself.


I'm going to have to study your modifications quite a bit to decide if I'm going to tackle this after all. I don't quite have your clothing skills and know it. I'm still willing to give it a go though, I can't help but think it's lovely and looks great on you!


It looks wonderful! Amazing how poor a pattern it was. All the more amazing that you were able to make it just right!


It looks wonderful! Amazing how poor a pattern it was.


The collar and the pin add so much interest to the cardi, and your instructions are great. I doubt, though, that I could do this pattern. I hate that because I love that spiderweb design.


Terri - Most crocheted cardis, unless made from DK yarn & finer, are more like crocheted coats. :) As long as you're prepared for that, it's OK. I'm afraid that many designers don't take that into consideration & what results are lumpy masses of yarn!

Wendy - I really hope so! I just love that pin with it. :)

Wanda & Julie - I was so afraid this would be another failure! I'm glad it was worth the time it took. :)

Vera - It really wasn't too hard to change since the pattern was basically modular. As I said, it wasn't really *wrong*, just funky. ::grin::

Thanks, Adrienne & Kristen!

Amy - It's certainly very warm, so be prepared for that aspect if you do!

Thanks, Jillian, but the mods weren't really that difficult. Just time consuming. I guess I was really dedicated to this one!

Linda - yes, you could make it. Honest!


Bron, it came out really nicely. I am a bit in shock over all the modifications you made in order for it to work for you, though---that seems pretty discouraging. I think I will put this pattern in the back of my head for a while and see how I feel about it when I have more experience under my belt. Though I keep thinking it would look really great in black, I'm just not ready for such an undertaking!


That turned out so nice! And the fact that you're *so* happy wearing it makes it look even better!! Way to go!


it's so totally worth it! AND it's CE. you look great wearing it.

Bron, the cardigan came out beautiful thanks completely to all your modifications. I swear you should be a pattern editor so the patterns can be right the first time :) Again, great job!
