Rose Cardigan Crocheted


Took me a long time to finish this, but here’s my rose cardigan! I’ve made multiple cardigans before but I still always have trouble with the sleeves, I keep making them too long lol.

It’s beautiful! I’m sure you’ll look great in it!

I still have to tackle my first cardigan yet :grimacing: ive got the pattern, which everyone I’ve talked to in my FB crochet group said was easy, and the yarn. Now i just have to find the time after a few other projects that are presents for family and such. :confounded::persevere::face_with_diagonal_mouth::woozy_face:

But back to topic…I love your cardigan so much! Roses are some of my favorite flowers​:rose: :heart:

Tysm!:heart: when I first tried it on I didn’t like it on me but after like a week I just put it on and I’m in love w it aha. I feel that about finding time bc I’m in the same boat, I have so many projects I wanna do but no time w work and the Christmas gifts I’m making for my family lol. Keep me updated tho on your first cardigan IK you’ll do great​:blush:

Thank you! And yeah it sucks aha but what I was thinking of doing for my next cardigan is either doing half or at least 3/4 of length that I normally have done in the past. I kept looking at @autumnolivecrochet cardigans and noticed she didn’t make the length of the sleeves that long bc the shoulder adds to the length

thats what i was thinking too because uaually the shoulders come down onto the arm a bit so maybe we should try taking off a few inches?

what you are making is “drop shoulder” construction. Very simple to do because it is just a square with holes for the sleeves and there is no actual arm hole (arm scythe) shaping. This means that the shoulder seam of the sweater will always drop off your shoulder. ( verses a set-in sleeve that is fitted around the arm and shoulder) In order to not have the extra bagginess in the sleeves, you have to measure from the shoulder seam, not your shoulder
