If you’ve stumbled upon this post, this pattern has been reworked due to errors and posted elsewhere here on the blog. (click here to find it!) The fit is slightly different than the above photo (see new fit below), but it’s still the same lounge-worthy cardi you know and love.
If you had troubles with the previous pattern, not to worry – my team and I have been spending LOADS of time to make sure every detail of this sweater is better than ever! My eternal gratitude goes out to those of you have been waiting ever so patiently for this revision – y’all are the real MVPs.

Thank gosh for this pattern!! I cannot wait to try it out
I am so happy to finally see the released pattern and I’m so excited to make it! This is one of the best cardigan patterns I’ve seen! I already have my eyes on the colors: definitely Ecru and either Peacock or Pumpkin…I can’t decide!!! Maybe I’ll make TWO slouchy stripe cardigans! Thank you for constantly designing the most beautiful things ❤️

Oh I love this ! I like the slouchy sweaters ! I like them even though medium framed I like a lot of room.. I’m currently working on the ruffed sleeved one but I might make my sleeves plain so can I just keep making them straight and tapering them slightly with some decreases?
My favorites sweater to make are raglan they have a nice drape over shoulders.
Do you plan on making a video on this one despite the negatives of some people I think your videos are good. I’m not a beginner but sometimes with a raglan if I don’t start it right it doesn’t come out right. I usually have to make mine with stitch markers.
Your pictures are good but I was wondering and the chart is great but sometimes I have a little trouble with making the raglan part to big then my sleeves are not attached at quite the right spot.
Is this cardigan similar to another cardigan you made a video for ?The one with raglan where you a flat looking yarn?
I really would love to make this although I’m sure we don’t have the yarn yet it took ages to get LB Jeans I could use maybe that or maybe Vannas Coice
This is a great sweater! I have one question -the photo with the caption says “fold yoke to make armholes” but at what point in the pattern do you do this? The instructions don’t say to do this… or am I missing it?

That’s in Row 13 where you “skip 50 to next chain 2”. You pretty much just dc to chain 2, connect the corners, dc, connect the corners again. That makes the 2 arm holes.
Awesome thank you!!!!

Sooooo pretty!! I love this sweater pattern!! And I love u so much for sharing!! ????????
I’m planning on doing this awesome pattern. Looking ahead, is there a way to work more double crochets instead of where the raglan style slits are? Just a personal preference on my end, and i think it would look great either way.
You might be able to, you’d just need to replace the chain stitches with double crochets but it might crowd the stitch. Worth a try!
Thanks for your help!!
I’m so excited to start this pattern! I just received the kit, and I am working up a gauge. The problem is, I am getting a 4 inch swatch with 13 stitches and 8 rows of DC (your pattern says 10 rows for gauge). I don’t want my sweater to end up being way too long! Any suggestions? The 13 stitches was right on at 4 inches. I am using a Furls Streamline J – 6mm hook. Thanks!
I am working the pattern in the Cranberry and Pumpkin in a size medium. If I am following the pattern, it looks like for the size Medium when you finish the round 6 it says you should end round 6 with 65 stitches – should this actually be 64 stitches instead of 65? (69 sts at round 2 – 5 decreases = 64 sts at round 6).
My second question is that it says the model is wearing a size medium – in the photos it looks like you are ending on the CC color (white) and you have (not including the shoulder) 5 blocks of color for the sleeve. But in the pattern it says after round 6 you should be changing colors after 10 rounds until you get to round 25 and then begin forming the cuff of the sleeve. If I do this I will only have 4 blocks of color. Should the pattern be extended to round 35 before beginning the cuff (single crochet decrease?) in order to have 5 blocks of color ending in the CC (cranberry for this color scheme)? Maybe I am reading the pattern wrong but any help would be greatly appreciated.
That part confuses me too. When you change to the MC is round 6 and 10 rows would mean you change to CC after row 16 right? Then change back to MC after row 26 but there is only 34 rows for size medium so how many rows is the 2nd MC change before starting the CC cuff?
