I want to knit something like this. Any ideas about where I might find a pattern for something similar? I used to be a prolific knitter and am fairly adept at adapting patterns so anything with that general shape would do.
Thanks smile

I read this as water tight cardigan and clicked thinking you were trying to knit a cardigan to go swimming in or maybe to walk the dogs in the rain.

I'll go now

This one is a bit chunky, but perhaps you could adapt it?

Try looking at the free patterns on Ravelry and Knitting Pattern Central.

don't knit a waterfall cardie, they are tragic

Thanks for those links, I'll investigate!

Predictable I'm not intending on going for the Per Una look, more the DKNY version wink

arf @ per una. that's alot of knitting! will you go for that gauzy effect?

i want a nice lacy round necked cardie pattern, so if you come across one on your travels...

Well, it seems waterfalls are just a long rectangle with two slots for the armholes and the sleeves are 2 more rectangles that fit into the slots. Easy peasy, but your right Predictable it is a lot of knitting. I may think again! Regarding your cardigan, I have bought yarn from this site and you can look in the pattern books if you click on them, you might find something there. It can be like looking for a needle in a haystack!

That Ravelry site is amazing SDTG, there's so much on it, thanks for the link smile

Have to be honest, unless you are countenancing using a knitting machine, I would think twice about making a waterfall cardie. You are going to be working on fairly fine needles and possibly 3/4 ply which is going to be a lot of fairly tedious stocking stitch.

Glad to see that you love Rav... it is a fab resource.
