I am horribly excited about this. I was going to save this for my next post because it would be my 100th, but I couldn’t wait. (I also don’t have anything else to post about.) I was going to hold out until tomorrow so I could post this earlier in the day, but here I am at 9PM! I am giddy and proud to present my first sweater pattern, Miette. Download Miette here.


I decided to name the pattern after a character in the film La Citรฉ Des Enfants Perdus who always wore red. I was watching that movie while I worked on this version of the cardigan and I decided that Miette the character and Miette the cardigan suited each other.


By the way, these are the pictures that I liked but couldn’t go in the pattern. This one didn’t make the cut because it has so much random stuff and you can’t see the tree branch I grabbed. Can you spy the blue truck, horse trailer, gate with Christmas lights, and/or well pump?


Anyways, Miette is a free download on Ravelry. The cardigan is actually not too bad to wear in the summer because I knit it using Cascade Sierra, though today it was 100+ out. Not really cardigan weather. I’ve described this design too many times in posts so if you’d like to read more about the cardigan, please check out the first version or download the pattern.

  1. Andi – awesome job on the cardi. It is very flattering! I love all of the detailing in it.

  3. It is beautiful, and an absolutely perfect colour on you. It is 54ยบF (12ยบC in my neck of the woods) here, and โ˜‚.In fact, it has been raining for the past 10 days or so, and it is supposed to be the height of summer. I haven't even chanced going outside recently because I haven't been too well, but just standing on the balcony for a few minutes yesterday I found myself in hat, cowl and coat.Once autumn starts to think about showing its head around the corner your lovely cardigan will help to keep of those slight chills in the evening.

  17. Adorable sweater! Did you get my comment about the fair? Just curious!

  18. Anon: Thanks and I don't think I did.

  19. […] how to make charts with Illustrator. Then I put together my pattern with InDesign. I had finished Miette by this point so I had an idea of what I was doing. I needed photos to finish Tea Time’s […]

  20. Just discovered this cardigan through http://pattythesnugbug.com/2011/finally-finished-miette-cardigan/#comment-4060 – I love it!!! I’m printing the pattern right away, and will check my yarn stash to see if I can start this weekend already, if not, I must have time to go yarn shopping!

    The cardigan is absolutely adorable, I must say once more! And really great outfit.

  21. HI – I love this pattern and have downloaded it and I want to use cascade sierra in the ochre colour in your picture. Can you tell me what colour it is as I looked on the yarn colour card and the closest was No. 443 Gold.

    1. I’m not sure what you mean? The yarn used was their Cherry red.

    I adore this cardigan but in slightly unsure of what size to knit. My chest measures 37″ and I don’t want it to be to big. should I use a size or to smaller in the knitting needles and do the middle size or should I use the 5mm needles and do the smallest size?
    Thank you for making this super cute pattern ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. You’ll have to do a little measuring and decide for yourself! I can’t guess which you’ll prefer.

  23. Jane

    Thank for this gorgeous pattern, I’m so struggling on row 25 where you cast on 10 am I right in saying break the yarn CO 10 P the stitches I’ve been knitting on then CO 10 so basically I CO 10 each end? Thank you

    1. Yep! There’s a more detailed explanation in the FAQ on the pattern page.

  24. Jane

    Thank you I did read it just wanted to be sure

  25. Mona

    I know it might be a silly question but I am kind of new to knitting, so be patient with me What kind of cast on should I use in Row 25?

    1. You can use the back loop CO or the knitted CO. Any single stranded CO method should do the trick, and it’s up to you to decide which you like best!

        Thank you, Andi!

    Thank for the lovely pattern! If our waist be a way bigger than our bust measurements, what should we do? Use a larger size instruction or simply use our bust size instruction? I used my bust size but now the cardigan is so tight on my waist that it wont closed ๐Ÿ™ please help me!

    1. It sounds like you won’t be able to knit the pattern and have it fit without doing some modifications.

      If all of the measurements are right for you except the waist, just work fewer decreases for the waist shaping! You do have to make sure you have the right increment at the end for the scallop pattern to fit right, but that’s not too complicated.

    Hi,this is the first time i knit a cardigan,and there are many things new to me,so i finally come to put stitches on a scrap yarn,and should i leave room or break yarn in the next row for knitting the sleeves afterwards?or should i knit it tighter and leave no gap between stitches?it would help a lot if u can answer me,i really want to make it perfect

    1. Sorry, I don’t understand your question.
