Today I’m sharing a crocheted sweater design and pattern with you. I released the Chloe Cardigan in February 2015 and it’s been shared by a few people on Ravelry who look great in it!
Chloe is a hip-length cocoon cardi with very simple shaping. The sweater is constructed from a trapezoid shape that creates the back and shoulders in one piece. The shawl collar and body front is worked directly onto the back & shoulder piece. Finally sleeves are worked seamlessly onto the body to create an elegant, easy-fit jacket with no closures, and three-quarter sleeves that are universally flattering. The silhouette is comfortable and modern with drape that skims the body’s curves. If you are new to making sweaters, Chloe’s clever seamless construction is a fun way to get started.
If you are looking for a great layering piece for spring and summer, try Chloe! Below are some links you can use to buy the PDF pattern for Chloe from your favorite platform: Ravelry, Etsy, or Craftsy.

Today I’m sharing Thisbe, a Boho-fabulous lace jacket perfect to crochet for the warm weather that I hope is finally here to stay!
Thisbe’s PDF pattern download contains full written instructions along with stitch pattern charts to guide you through the lovely and interesting lace that makes up the front and back body. The design is written for six sizes: Small-3X.
The jacket is worked sideways in two pieces from the center out. Your foundation chain creates both the front and back of one side of the jacket, you work all the way out to the shoulder, then decrease for the 3/4 sleeve. The opposite back/front piece is seamlessly worked onto the existing center and crocheted in the same manner out to the other 3/4 sleeve cuff.
Some ravishing Ravelers have made Thisbe, so check them out to see how it went!
