Frilled Cardigan Knitting Pattern

Loved the pattern and it is easy to follow the instructions. . Once the pattern is quickly learned, it knits very fast. I've already made two versions.

Crab apples frilled cardigan

Nearly finished cardigan. So far I've been really pleased with the pattern and looking forward to completing. The pattern has been easy to follow and has written instructions as well as charts, with the bonus of pictures of the garment throughout making.

Memories of childhood

I truly love this sweater. It reminds me of the sweaters I used to wear as a child. I found this pattern easy to follow. I am not an expert knitter but I was able to complete this without too much trouble.


The most adorable sweater I have ever knit!

Thank you Crabapples for such an excellent pattern! It was very well explained with photos, charts and clearly written instructions. It knit up very quickly with no problems. It fits perfectly and looks adorable!
