Serenum Cardigan/ Sweater crochet pattern testing projects:


  • Please note, that Yarn (A, B, C, D) indicate colors for the original layout in the pattern (used for the Cotton 8 prototype), but testers used yarn differently. For example, Yannic used Whirlette Plum as Yarn C in the motif and as Yarn D in the body. For that reason testers' yarn usage is different from the given in the Materials section of the pattern.

  • If you want to use custom layout, refer to the Materials section, last paragraph "Yarn in meters/ yards for different parts". Choose color for each part, summarize amount for each color in meters/yards, and calculate how many skeins of each color you need.

    • For example, you need 747yds of Whirlette Plum color.

    • Divide 747yds by amount of yards in 1 Whirlette skein (497.6yds): 747/ 497.6 = 1.5 skeins. Round it up to 2 skeins.
