Sage Cardigan Pattern on Sale

Finally I manage to finish writing down the Sage Cardigan pattern. Writing down pattern is not as easy as I though it would be. Every time I checked, I still manage to find some error. I wrote the pattern row to row, so no need to think, just follow the pattern. I also include the charted pattern if you preferred to follow the chart. Don’t be surprise with the total pages you have to print (32 pages total). I could change the font to smaller one, or resized the charted pattern so it would fit into 1 page. But, what is the point if you can not read it? If you prefer to follow the chart, print the chart only, but if you prefer the english instruction, just print that part.

Originally, I wanted to put this pattern for free. But, on second thought, because of the time I spent to write this pattern, I think I just have to put it on sale. Just email me if you are in doubt and want to ask question first.

Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL, 3XL
Needle: 3.25 mm (size 3), 3.5 mm (size 4) knitting needle (straight/circular), 2.75 mm (size C) crocheted hook
Yarn: Fingering weight or double strand lace wight yarn (eg: Rowan 4-ply cotton, double strands of Jaegerspun Zaphyr). Yarn requirement for XS: 1200 meter, S: 1300 meter, M: 1400 meter, L: 1500 meter, XL: 1600meter, XXL: 1700 meter, 3XL: 1800 meter
Notion: Tapestry deedle, buttons (6 pcs), marker, scrap yarn
Gauge: 30 sts and 40 rows = 4” (10 cm) in Stockinette Stitch (St st) using 3.25 mm needle or adjust the needle size to get gauge. I agree that this is not a quick knit. There are a lot of stitches, but if you invest the time and quality yarn, you will get a timeless cardigan to love for years.
Difficulty: Adventurous beginner (you need to know how to do knit and purl, decrease and increase, make button holes, simple cable, short row, and crochet)

I know it's very daunting to knit a project with small gauge. However, I found that knitting with bulky yarn and big needle doesn't give me good result. It's bulky and make me look fat.

So, what is the guarantee, after knitting so many hours using fine yarn and small needle, that the result will be satisfying? Knit the back first. Wash and block it. No need to stretch or pull so tight. Just pat it a bit and make sure it shape properly and lay flat. After it dried, compare it with your favourite cardigan. If it's match then continue, if it doesn't then at least you only need to redo the back part and not the whole thing :)

Hi Lily,
Its glad that you finally have the pattern written out! Very difficult a? I will learn to write out a proper pattern in coming days! =)

Lily, that's good news, congrats!
Maybe next year I'll be knitting some wearables and I have to get your pattern then ;)

Hi Lily,

I have an ebay store, and I am always looking for items that I can list. I sell quality yarns so it would be ideal to list a pattern like the ones you have shown us here. I do quite a bit of crocheting myself and I think your patterns are superlative. I am pretty new to such a forum, so I am not sure whether I should give you my email address here. Let me know what you think first and we can share more information then.

I saw this pattern on Ravelry and it's really cute. Maybe you could post a better picture though? The one on Ravelry shows the beautiful details of this cardigan way better.
