I've seen cardigans with the two front edges just hanging - "fluttering", no buttons. In fact I might have seen one or two in Knit a few years ago. What do you call this type of cardigan? Ruffle front? Flutter front? I can't find a pattern not knowing what it's called! It rather looks like a waist-length kimono, with a hanging front, that curls back. I'd like a pattern for sport or DK weight, living in Florida. (Winter was 8 minutes this year! Never had a chance to get out the long velvet skirts!)
All help will be appreciated - even if it's just how to construct the flutterness to knit onto a different cardigan.
I don't know what the name for these sweaters is either but you could see if either is close to what you want. I searched Ravelry for 'flutter front cardigan' but you could try some variations or try an advanced seach with sport yarn specified.
Thank you again!
Hi, I read your request and then happened to see a sweater that might be right. It is called the Minimalist Cardigan by Ruthie Nussbaum; available at interweave. Check it out.
I've heard of them called "waterfall" sweater and "fly away" sweater too.
Thank you to all of you, for your invaluable advice! This definitely sends me in the right direction!
