Crochet Kit - Hailey Cardigan

SKU: B70963

Who doesn’t love a cozy crochet cardigan with pockets? I know I do, but what make these pockets even better is they are inset pockets! Meaning they are made by creating an opening in the front panels and then seaming the pocket on later to the inside of the cardigan!

Awkward Shape and Poor Gauge

I'm not a newbie by any means and I understood all of the directions in this pattern. The pattern is just terrible. My gauge matched perfectly using the suggested hook, which did seem small for this yarn. The fabric is tight and the drape is poor for a cardigan. Speaking of which, the shape is less cardigan and more kimono, which is, again, strange for a crocheted sweater. The whole thing is small, tight, and just awkward. I would never attempt another pattern by this designer.

Seems very small

First, this pattern is beautiful and I really wish I could have given it five stars. I wear size s/m, so that’s the size I went with. The directions are clear, no problem there. I don’t crochet tightly, but when I finished the back piece, it was tight and quite thick- nothing like the pic shown. I tore it back out, started over and went up to l/xl- same results. It looks nothing like the more open stitch in the pic. Perhaps a bigger hook than an “L”? And even the l/xl was quite small. Disappointed at the time I put in- going to try an “N” or “P” hook, which will take a lot more yarn, but I’m determined to finish the kit. Will just end up being a lot more expensive than originally planned. I will think twice about kits in the future.

Hello Cindy - remember that you should always use whatever hook size lets you match the blocked gauge in the pattern. The L hook is a little small compared to the recommended hook size for Heartland Thick & Quick, so it's possible that the designer is a looser crocheter and needed to go down a size to get the desired gauge. If you're an average or a tight crocheter then a size N or even a P may be needed.
