The Fleur-de-lis Cardigan is a wonderful layering piece that you can wear year round if you so desire. From work, a night on the town, the theater or sitting around a campfire, you’ll have many many opportunities to wear this sweater!

You will need size 4 medium weight yarn and an H/8 (5.00 mm) crochet hook. This pattern is intermediate level. A stitch chart is included with the pattern.

You can customize this cardigan pattern to create several different looks. You could work three rows of the “sleeves” and finish off, making this a kimono. Another option is working enough rows of the sleeves to reach your elbow — a great summertime sweater!

You can shorten it by omitting some rows for a cropped cardigan or, conversely, you can lengthen it by adding additional rows to create a duster style garment.

The example sweater is an XL. It is not true to size. The cardigan is slightly over-sized and not intended to close in the front. It is designed to hang open.

This cardigan consists of three panels: 1 back panel and 2 front panels. They are seamed together at the shoulders and under the arms. The sleeves are then worked outward from the armholes. Finally, a simple double crochet trim is added around the border of the main body of the cardigan.
