The versatility of the cardi is endless. Pair it with a lightweight long sleeve shirt, like my daughter did (above image) and it works as a vest. Wear it over a spring sleeveless dress or tank top to add a little warmth.

About the Cropped Motif Cardigan Pattern

The cropped design is seen in the capped/cropped sleeves that cover the shoulder and in the length falling mid body. If you prefer a longer cardigan, you could add an additional row of motifs, however, I have not made one. If you do, I would love to see how it turns out.

The pattern comes in adult sizes ranging from Adult Small up to XLarge.

Made in a light (#3) weight yarn and a crochet hook H (5.00 mm) and crochet hook I (5.5 mm), the Cardigan works up quicker than you might think.

Flower Motif Blanket Pattern Release

A beautiful flower motif pattern that works up so lovely in so many different ways. If you know my crocheting style you know that I don’t like sewing pieces together and a lot of color changes, but this pattern really was lovely to put together. The way I designed it was to make all the center pieces, then add the second color. Lastly you crochet the final rounds and as you do this you stitch the pieces together. No daunting task of hand sewing when you finish your last motif because it is done!
Get your copy of this lovely pattern in each of my etsy shops:
Please take a minute to notice that the edges are uneven along two sides. Upon the request of one of my pattern testers I did add a “half flower” pattern so you can even out the edges if you want to (but I did not include the detailed instructions on colors). Here is a sample of both edges:
Here are some fabulous images of the pattern tests that were completed. I asked the testers to be creative and make the blanket using as many or as few colors as they wish. Which is your favorite?
This beautiful version was completed by Nondas, owner of Yarn Medley’s From the Heart.
Nondas used 3 colors and made each motif the same and the final blanket is stunning!


The softness of this sample is so warm and inviting, this version was completed by
Sarah from Briar Rose Boutique. Sarah choose to make all the centers the same then complete the rest of the motifs using half blue and half pink and the outcome is beautiful.
This sample is in the works and I cannot wait to see it all done! Michelle decided to keep going once she finished the blanket, she is going to make it much bigger and has decided to use the motifs and make it into a shawl. I love the solid motifs with the border done with bold contrasting colors.


Another sample that just makes me smile! I love the brightness of the lime green and teal and the softness of the cream. Happy Dancing Willow always does such a nice job working up a fun version!


And one more version made with 3 colors but has a completely different look! Tanya from MaDukes Hook Up made all the centers the same then alternated the blue and yellow. This version makes me want to throw on some denim cut offs and go lay in a field of daisies!
