Join Pamela Stark of Sincerly Pam and Furls Crochet for their May CAL. This month we are making a gorgeous free crochet lace cardigan, the Addy Cardigan. See details below.

The Addy Cardigan is a beautifully textured design featuring a simple lace body and contrasting bottom band and cuffs. The simple ribbed button band allows the cardigan to be worn open or buttoned up. Perfect for layering over tanks or sleeveless tops in the warmer months.

CUFF GAUGE
7 (sc, ch2, sk1st) groups x 17 rows = 4”x4”

  1. Ch20, sc in 2nd ch from hook, ch2, sk 1 ch, sc in next ch, repeat from across to last st, sc in last. 9 sc (sc, ch2, sk1st) groups

2: Ch1, turn, sc in first st, ch2, sk 1 st, sc in next ch2 space, repeat from across, sc in last sc. 9 sc (sc, ch2, sk1st)

Repeat Row 2 (17) more times. Measure the 7 sc (sc, ch2, sk1st) groups in the middle of your swatch. Without fastening off, move on to the Lace Gauge.

LACE GAUGE
4 (2tr, ch2, dc) groups x 6 rows = 4”x4” Continue to work this gauge after the last repeat of the Band and Cuff Gauge above. This is how to pattern repeats work in the pattern and will make sure you end with the correct dimensions on each panel.

1: Ch4 (counts as tr), turn, sk 1 st, (2tr, ch2, dc in next ch2 space, sk next ch2 space, (2tr, ch2, dc) in next ch2 space, repeat from across, tr in last. 5 (2tr, ch2, dc) groups

2: Ch4, turn, (2tr, ch2, dc) in each ch2 space across, tr in top of previous row’s beg ch4. 5 (2tr, ch2, dc) groups

Repeat Row 2 until the lace is at least 4” tall.

Again, measure the (2tr, ch2, dc) groups in the middle of your swatch for the most accurate numbers.
