"Craftophrenia"~ Dabbling in Everything!

I am 17 inches into this right now. This is a very easy pattern. I had to make a few corrections, as there were a few mistakes in the original.
Once you get the rhythym down, this is a great beginning lace pattern. And, there's only 3 rows out of 10 that really have to be counted.
Here's the photo:


This is how it's made... one long piece with cuffs on both ends:

And, Here's a close-up of the lace pattern:


I am typing my revisions of the pattern in the next post. Anyone care to join me?

HERE IS my VERSION OF THIS PATTERN:

Yarn... Caron Simply Soft.. About 3; 7oz. skeins white
1 pair circular needles size 8
1 pair straight needles, size 1 for petites, size 2 for large& XL wrists. Size 3 for xxl & up wrists.
1 steel crochet hook size 2, 1 large button to cover. about 5/8 to 1 inch, as you prefer.
PATTERN STITCH: 10 rows to create pattern repeat
Row 1: K3, * yo, k2 tog, and pass slip st over k2 tog, yo, k3, repeat from * across row, ending with yo, k6 ( not k3)
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: K3, * k3, yo, slip 1, k2 tog, pass slip st over k2 tog, yo, repeat from * across row, ending with yo, k3.
Row 4: Purl
Row 5: Repeat row 1
Row 6: Repeat row 2
Row 7: Knit
Row 8: Purl
Row 9: Knit
Row 10: Purl
Notice how the pattern rows 1 and 3  are identical, except the first and last 3 stitches change place to  move the dots over to form starburst design.

NOW FOR THE GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:
Using smaller needles, cast on 62 stitches.
Work in K2,P2 ribbing for 4 inches.
Change to #8 needles, and knit across row, increasing 1 stitch in every stitch across row.
This gives you 124 stitches.
Purl 1 row, then add 1 more stitch at beginning and end of next knit row.
purl 1 more row.
This will give you 4 set-up rows of stockinette stitch, and a total of 126 stitches.
Then, begin working pattern, and continue until piece measures 52" from top of ribbing. You may adjust this length if you need more or less fabric around your shoulders.
End on row 9 of pattern.
Purl 2 tog all across next row. This will give you 63 stitches. Eliminate the remaining odd stitch, to even out to 62 stitches in the next row, as you change to your small size needles.
Work ribbing again until second cuff matches the first.
Bind off.
FINISHING:
Sew together sleeves at each end, 12 inches up from cuff.
Single crochet 2 rows around top and bottom edges. Make a sc covered button, and sc chain for loop. Position these at neckline.
You are finished! ENJOY!
This is not just a bed-jacket. I believe this will prove to be an elegant, easy to -wear sweater alternative.
I hope someone will join me!

Thanks for the shawl pattern link! It's beautiful. I'm saving that one for later!
This is probably going to be my last knitting project this season. I may try some crochet edgings, or spring weight pieces next.
Meanwhile, I'm going to get this shoulderette made quickly, before it starts getting warm again here in Phoenix.

I finished it last night! I made a change to the finishing. Instead of 2 rows of Single crochet, and the loop and button, I eliminated the button, and knitted a 3" deep ribbing all around the opening. This was done with a size 6 circular needle, and I believe I picked up 314 stitches, one in each SC loop. I only went around once with the SC to set an edge to pick up.
I am posting the finished item in the completed projects board, so this pattern can remain here.

This is very pretty--I saw your post with the finished item.  It looks like you could snuggle in it and stay nice and warm!

I had found a similar style pattern done in crochet on the web.  I had it halfway done and then frogged it because I wasn't crazy about the colors I was doing it in.  It was very easy to make.  I'm not a knitter.

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

Oh No! What a shame you didn't like your colors! I think I've done enough with that white yarn. There's still half of a 7 oz. skein left. I wonder if I can get a beret out of it? But not for now!
  I'm trying out some #10 DNC crochet thread I bought today. If only those patterns explained more! I just find knitting much easier to read, when you are going past basic things.

I am waiting on it (the pattern), KLK.
Of course starting work on the pattern won't be any time soon. My knitting is suffering right now while I clear up and clean up following the Olympics.

But it looks like something to wear in the spring - and after the past few days, I need a reminder that the weather is going to improve.

I DIDN'T SCROLL DOWN FAR ENOUGH!
 THANK YOU VERY MUCH,

Rows 1 and 3 are written a bit confusing, I was getting bad stitch counts and unbalanced yarn overs because of the way the ends of the rows where written. I'd write them like this:

Row 1: k3 *yo, s1, k2tog, psso, yo, k3, repeat from * to last 3 sts, k3
Row 3: k3, *k3, yo, s1, k2tog, psso, yo, repeat from * to last 3 sts, k3

The "s1, k2 tog, psso" could be further abbreviated to sk2p:

Row 1: k3 *yo, sk2p, yo, k3, repeat from * to last 3 sts, k3
Row 3: k3, *k3, yo, sk2p, yo, repeat from * to last 3 sts, k3

It's a pretty stitch pattern. I don't know if I'd wear the jacket as written, it's not really my style, but the stitch is lovely and I'm sure I'll find a use for it somewhere. Smiley
