Spider Web Cardigan

Page history last edited by Heidi 12 years, 3 months ago

Joyce's Spider Web Circular Cardigan

 

This cardigan was based on a garment that one of my students (Joyce) made some 30 years ago. The design used clever shaping to fit the garment to the shoulders and prevent it from slipping off the shoulders.

 

 

 

Pattern

 

UK Instructions

 

ss = slipstitch

ch = chain

dc = double crochet (US single crochet)

tr = treble (US double crochet)

nxt = next

sk = skip

 

Materials: 425g DK Cotton / Acrylic or any DK (sport) weight yarn

  • 100g colour 1 (I used Patons Cotton DK  in cream, 210m / 227 yrds per 100g)
  • 100g colour 2 (I used Sirdar Tropicana Cotton Effect DK in pale blue, 240m / 262 yrds per 100g)
  • 100g colour 3 (I used Sirdar Tropicana Cotton Effect DK in med blue, 240m / 262 yrds per 100g)
  • 125g colour 4 (I used Patons Cotton DK  in dusky blue, 210m / 227 yrds per 100g)

 

2 buttons to match yarn (2cm diameter)

 

Size 1: UK 12 – 16 (4.00mm hook)

Size 2: UK 16 – 20 (4.50mm hook)

 

Size 2: tension: rows 1 – 11; diameter roughly 11 inches

 

The back fits a range of sizes however the front will reach further round on smaller bust sizes and be more bolero-like on larger busts. Position the fastening to suit taste and bust; the width of the fastener can be easily adjusted to accommodate a larger bust.

 

Using colour 1

 

Foundation Row: 6ch, join with ss to form circle.

 

Row 1: 3ch (acts as 1st tr throughout), 17tr into circle, join with ss to close.

 

Row 2: 3ch, 1tr into same place as 3ch, 2tr into each tr to end, join with ss to close (36 tr total counting the 3ch as 1tr).

 

Row 3: 3ch, 1tr into nxt tr, 3ch, *skip 1tr, 2tr, 3ch* repeat from * to * to end, join with ss to close. (Forms 12 chain loops)

 

Row 4: 3ch, 1tr into nxt tr, 4ch, *tr into nxt 2tr from previous row, 4ch* repeat from * to * to end, join with ss to close.

 

Row 5: 3ch, 1tr into nxt tr, 5ch, *tr into nxt 2tr, 5ch* repeat from * to * to end, join with ss to close.

Row 11: 3ch, 1tr into nxt tr, 11ch, *tr into nxt 2tr, 11ch* repeat from * to * to end, join with ss to close.

 

Size 2: Cast off.

 

Optional - to add tension to the spider web centre piece:

 

Attach yarn to row 3 using a ss to the mid point of a ch loop, 2 ch, ss over nxt loop out (row 4), 2 ch, ss over next loop out ... and so on until final row of colour 1 is reached, ss to over ch loop and cast off. Repeat for each ch loop on row 3. This gives 'spokes' of chain and ss.
