Hi! I have looked through all my free pattern sources and come up with nothing... well, not nothing of course, but not what I want. Here in Sweden it's common that you can only buy a pattern if you buy the yarn. I hate that stupid rule! 'Cause I already have the yarn. So please help me find something, preferrably free, like the green cardigan/bolero on page 20!! http://www.garntjanst.se/forstaSidan/katalog/katalog2006.pdf

There was a bolero pattern in Knitters magazine two issues ago. Do you get Knitters in Sweden? Of course, back ordering would be a real pain....

What about this one?  Kinda similar.....although you'd probably have to adjust based on your yarn, because this one uses a pretty chunky fiber.

This one from Knitpicks is similar and is only $1.99

And my favorite, from Knitty, is free. You can easily omit the bobbles and probably figure out a way to take out the cables if you wanted to

I thought of either that Lionbrand one, or this one on craftster, you would have to add sleeves. I think some did add sleeves if you scroll through all 49 pages!!!

Thanks for the help so far. I have been considering both the Lionbrands Fisherman shrug and Knitty's Blackberry. But none of them matches my yarn at all! My gauge is 21 stitches x 27 rows.... I've also considered the Circular Shrug, but I don't like that it will be all rib in the front. Hmm...... Thoughts anyone?
