My inspiration for this design is the wonder of life itself. The dictionary describes wonder as being: “a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable”. Life is full of unexpected, and inexplicable beauty. I am constantly amazed at the resilience of a simple blade of grass that can look completely dead in the winter months, and then seemingly turn green in front of your eyes the moment a spring shower releases its first drop of rain. This transformation creates a great sense of wonder in me and gives me comfort and peace.
This cardigan expresses that wonder with its ability to transform from a simple rectangular shape into an amazingly wonderful oversized shrug that wraps you in warmth and comfort.

Love the Pattern
This pattern is very clearly written and easy to follow. I am half way the garment and it is working up wonderfully. Love the whole look of the pattern so far.
I didn't read it right
I totally missed one line....Gauge is crucial! So my gauge was off maybe a 32nd, add that to the total pattern and well I had a pretty decent lap blanket. Oh I still stitched it up and tried to wear it as a jacket...yeah don't use bamboo yarn too. It's beautiful, works up quickly, watch the trim stitches though. You'll love this little jacket.
I enjoyed making this pattern. It was easy, except that a few times, I went back to count stitches because I added or subtracted at the edge. I made it for a person who wears 1X or 2X, and if I do it again, I will make it a bit bigger to create more of a drape as is seen in beautiful Chandi.
Liking this pattern...easy to follow..
I like this project pattern's unique stitch pattern. It can be dressed up or down.
Absolutely love this pattern! I am just finishing my second one!
I’m halfway through the Wonder Shrug and loving it. I cannot wait to add it to my wardrobe!
I love make this. It is a lot of finals relaxing to make.
i love it
Absolutely love it
Love this pattern! I am an intermediate beginner and picked this for my first attempt at a garment. So far so good!
Easy to follow instructions with a wonderful video!! Can’t wait to finish!!
I just got this pattern and so haven't tried it yet, but am very excited to get started. Lucky enough to be working full time still, I have a queue of projects so it may a little while before I get to this, but it looks doable for an advanced beginner, which I am. I'm making it for my daughter-in-law and I know she'll love the style of it. And with the gorgeous yarn I get from Expression Fiber Arts - I know it will be a treasured piece of clothing/art. I'll try to remember to do a review once I've made the garment.

I am enjoying this pattern and I am sure I will love the finished project. Easy to follow.
I did not have a chance of doing this crochet pattern yet, I'm still working on the other pattern (Cirrus)
I am more than 1/2 way done making this shawl. It was very easy to download and the instructions are very easy to follow.
I ordered 3 pitchers and they are beautiful.
The pattern is clearly written and easy to follow. I haven't made the Cardigan yet as I have another project I'm working on but it's next in line

Wonder crochet pattern
I think this shawl looks so elegant and light. It should be fun to put together.
How nice it is
I'm making this project now, and I'm loving the way it's looking, can't wait to wear it.
This is a beautiful fun pattern! I am extremely pleased with the pattern! It works up easily and quickly. We took a roadtrip and within a few hours I was halfway through the beautiful cardigan. I have already started looking for a new color combination to make another as a gift. There were videos that went with the pattern that are helpful to beginners.
Great pattern even for (advanced) beginners
I have a couple of covers and wraps under my belt, but I can't describe myself as very confident. Nevertheless, this pattern is easy to follows and the result looks great. Great way to built confidence.
I got this pattern because this is a beautiful wrap and it will be easy to make and wear.
Looking forward to doing this
I love this pattern, it's easy to read, simple to follow, easy to make.
This garment looks so comfy and warm! Looking forward to making it!
I haven't started this pattern yet, I have no doubt it will work up beautifully as have all of the other patterns I have downloaded from you. I look forward to starting this one in the fall. thank you for all of the beautiful patterns and yarns that you offer.
I love how this looks with the lacy stitches!
Wonderful pattern with great directions.
I cant wait to make this. It looks like a cozy hug to curl up in with a good book next to a warm fire!
Amazing pattern! Easy to understand and a joy to mindlessly crochet away with. Love Expression Fiber Arts!
Great pattern , easy to understand ,absolutely beautiful
Love the way this pattern gathers at the wrists to help hold it on. Great for the fall season.
I can't get over the drape and style of this garment, it's simply fabulous! I plan to crochet this for the fall and spring when all one desires is something cosy over the shoulders.
Amazing and fun pattern
I am LOVING this pattern!!!! It’s easy and though I am not finished yet I am so happy with how it is progressing. So glad I ordered it!! I’ll definitely be making more than one!!
Great pattern - love the carfigan
Review for Wonder cardigan
Have not started crocheting it yet but the pattern is well written and the finished product looks great
I haven't done much with this pattern except make a couple of swatches, but it is just what I wanted to showcase some fingering yarn I dyed by hand. I don't have enough, but adjustments in the colors used should be easy. I am a plus size and was in a bit of despair about finding a pattern that would fit. Thank you for sharing it with us.
I’m excited to make this pattern. I have a road trip coming up and thought it would be perfect for riding along with my husband. I like shrugs but most are too short. That’s why this pattern appealed to me.
