Welcome to the Sweet Nothings Crochet blog for free crochet patterns with my original designs and creations. :)
Over the years, I've found that there are a lot of free charts available on the net, so as I make the project off that chart, I write down my notes and share them here on my blog. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for stopping by.

EASY GREEN CARDI
EASY GREEN CARDI
I loved the fall of this cardigan – it was free
flowing and looked really comfortable. I
had this lovely light yarn and I thought it was just perfect for it.
Do check out the yarn used by the designer
and read my notes before you choose this project.
Do check my long Pinterest link for all the free
patterns I’ve written up over the years right at the bottom of this blog.
And this is the (designer's) photo that inspired me to work on this project.
Materials used : Today I’ve used
~ 120 gms of our superb Indian Oswal 3-ply yarn with a 3.5
mm crochet hook
Size : 32” – 34”
: Intermediate to Advanced Skill level.
In case you have the yarn required (per
designer) for this project, it will be an intermediate skill. If you need to
work in calculations due to a difference in yarn, it becomes an advanced skill
Either way, do work a gauge swatch first.
Instruction information :
The designer has used a way thicker yarn and a 5.5mm
I am using a much thinner yarn and hook. This write up is just to confirm that this
pattern will work, no matter which yarn (and suitable hook) you useJ
I love the way this pattern is constructed -
totally unusual. As I used a slightly thinner yarn, I need to figure/ change a
little of the pattern to suit the yarn used.
The pattern itself is really simple – all just
chains and dc, so the *calculations* per se are not that much, I thought.
It’s just that its constructed differently, so
you need to think about it.
So like the designer says, it is worked from the
sleeves to centre back. If you are using
any other yarn than that suggested, you will need to work stitches sufficient
to get the round arm measure. Now you
will use the largest part of th arm to start. As we work in a round from the start, you
will just work with an even number of stitches for your arm measure.
There on, what I did was look at the really
lovely diagram / chart at the bottom of the pattern sheet that explains
measurements. I then worked out my
measurements using that chart (i.e whatever length and width I needed for
my client) and mapped it to the chart.
This is not an easy pattern if you are trying
to calculate it all on your own.
As I suggested earlier, do work a gauge swatch
