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.

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
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.
