Making Waves Cardigan
Making Waves is a seamless, top-down raglan cardigan with 3/4 sleeves and trimmed with ruching at the fronts & neckline, and fastened with hooks & eyes. It is intended to be worn with 0-2” of negative ease at the bust (positive ease is not recommended since the hooks & eyes require a bit of tension to stay fastened). Shaping of the bodice is done along princess seams at both the front and back of the garment, and the lower edge is finished with a hem.
I have recently added a new design, New Wave, as a modification of Making Waves. Due to similarities of the designs, a discount of $4 is automatically offered if you purchase both patterns. You do not need to purchase both at the same time to get the discount. For example, if you have already purchased Making Waves, you may purchase New Wave for only $2. The discount will be applied in your cart at time of payment. No code is necessary!
Actual bust measurements are 30.2(32.8, 36.2, 39.5, 42.5, 45, 48, 50.6)” requiring approximately 995(1140, 1320, 1475, 1625, 1800, 1960, 2150) yards of fingering weight yarn at the stated gauge.
Two needle sizes are required for the pattern: One size to obtain the stated gauge in stst, and a second size that is one size smaller for finishing the ruched trim. “Take time to save time,” and do check your gauge by making a swatch & blocking the swatch.
