I have recently developed a thing for everything oversized. Some months back, I wanted a lacy, comfy sweater but most importantly, one that is roomy. Are you team fitted or oversized? Whatever team you are on, you can make this easy lacy sweater as the pattern includes instructions as to how to go about making this into your dream lacy fitted/oversized sweater.
Pattern Inspiration – As with all of my designs, there’s always a motive behind the design. For this easy oversized crochet cardigan, all I wanted was a lacy, light weight and lot of ease to it. Isn’t it great when the pattern turns out as great as the sketch? It’s so relieving and exciting at the same time when this beauty came out as planned.
Yarn Suggestions – This prototype was made using DK yarn and it is advised that you use similar #3 (DK) weight yarn when making yours.
Customization – As with all of my garments, you can customise this pattern to fit your personality. Here are the parts you can adjust.
- The Ease of this eater can be increased or decreased. There’s instruction on how to go about this in the pattern.
- The Lenght can be reduced or increased. Think of this sweater with reaching your waist, or a little above/below it!
- Sleeve lenght
- The Neckline – You can adjust the neckline for a more comfortable fit.
