I used instructions to crochet this nice cardigan from this side.
Because I speak no portuguese, I used a web-translater to translate the instructions, which turned out quite funny sometimes.
This is my first attept to crochet such a big thing like a cardigan and I am very pleased with the result!

Material Notes

10 balls (each 50g by 120m) of cotton wool, a crochet hook (size 2,5) and 9 buttons




Garment Type
Bohemian, Casual

    this is beautiful!!! I have Word Monkey Translator on my Igoogle page and it did fine. You are right though, some of the words do come out funny. I got “paragraph” for crochet hook. Go figure.

    What size did this pattern make? I would like to adjust it to fit my mother in law..

      Hey, thank you for your nice comment ;O)
      This pattern is in size 38 and is very fittend, as you can sea. But the pattern is easy to adjust. you just need the right measurements. I’ll give you an advice, make the sleeves wider, they are quite narrow…

    I saw this Chanel cardigan featured in a magazine awhile ago! I admired it then too. There was a matching tiered mini skirt too. I would love to share your talent. This is beautiful!

      I also saw a maching purse but I only used the instructions given by the website I linked above…
      On this website are also some other instruktions for dresses and skirts you can follow. But I am not sure, if a wollen dress would be comfortable…

    This is VERY Chanel! Do you plan to add blue and white flowers? Personally, I like it plain.

      Thank you, I was not sure, if it turned out as a true Chanel…
      No I don’t add the flowers. In this way, the cardigan suits to most of my clothes.

      Dieses filigrane ist so schön… . Wie trägst du die Jacke? Was trägst du darunter?
      What are you going to wear underneath this cardigan? Some blouse or a Shirt?

      I think I am going to wear a shirt or a top underneath, bacause the cardigan has a quit fitened bodice!
