What a beautiful sweater! I would love to make one for my daughter and one for myself. I read through the directions, then the comments section. I see I am not alone in trying to figure out these directions. This surprised me. I have been crocheting for almost 50 years and this is the first pattern I have ever come across that I can't follow. As a few other people have asked, do you have a copy of directions that can be more easily understood? I really hope you do, because I really would like to make this sweater as it is so beautiful, and different. For this reason I have given this pattern only a 2. Please respond. Thank you very much.

Hi there, This is an original pattern from Caron Yarns - we suggest contacting them directly via their website or social media pages for a response. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

Hello! This is a lovely sweater! And that's just putting it lightly. I've only just not long ago learned to read the basics in crochet speak, and would like to know if you have an easier pattern explanation? Are you able to write (or do you already have) this pattern in a more easily understood pattern? Oh if you do, and could send it I'd be forever grateful! I'll be looking out for a reply and checking message. Thank you!

I have come across this pattern,and thinking of trying it..until that is I read the instructions.. Surely there is an easier way to explain the instructions.. It may as well be written in Greek..do you not want anyone to recreate this lovely jacket? I wonder! I've only given 2stars to reflect this.

Is there a tutorial.... I am more of a visual learner and I cannot make sense of the instructions for some of the stitches involved? Thanks.

I made this 4 years ago. It has lovely drape and is very soft and I really ought to make another as it is one of my favorite sweaters. I love the old fashioned Victorian feel it gives to jeans or skirts. I think I made a large at the time and I am a 48 bust so it fits and still has room so is not tight.

I have given up on trying to find attractive clothes in my size. I have a very large bust and not all of the patterns are calculated to my bust size which is about 55". Can someone tell me how to calculate the stitches to increase to make it in my size?

THE LACY RUFFLE CARDIGAN INCLUDES YOUR SIZE. FOR INFORMATION ABOUT CHANGING PATTERNS TO FIT YOU, CHECK THE WEBSITE FOR THE CROCHET GUILD OF AMERICA (www.crochet.org/).

I think the pattern comes in that size. I am a 48 bust and I think my sweater is a large. Try using a bigger hook and keep your tension a little loose. I find this yarn (Caron) stretches a bit when you hang the garment. I have also washed and dried mine with no issues. :)

You could either do that or use a larger hook so Is a bigger gauge

THIS LOOKS SO BEAUTIFUL!! I JUST FEEL IN LOVE WITH IT!

I was wondering if I did a 4th row 2 it would still work as an X large... It looks like only 2 people have even made a comment though so I may get no help at all...

This sweater looks to light and lacy in picture but when it is made up it is very heavy. I made it with Simply Soft, but it is bulky and am taking it apart to try something else. I was making this for one of my granddaughters. I had it almost finished, just needed to do last sleeve, but just didn't like it.

LOVE THIS 40 yrs.ago!!!
