Petals Wrap Cardigan
Geometry is often the inspiration for my crochet designs. In this sweater, it is twofold. First, I found a beautiful four-sided pineapple motif that I expanded into a six-sided design so that it would look like six petals of a flower. Second, I dissected the hexagon motif into two half hexagons to create the right and left fronts of the cardigan, with a full hexagon back. The resulting wraparound cardigan features a lacy six-petal flower motif across the back and a flower petal edging to mimic those of the central motif. The side ties are long enough to wrap around the waist and tie in the back.This pattern can be found in Kristin Omdahl's Crochet So Fine.
