Cheese in the Trap Cardi Knit Pattern

What comes to mind when you think of cheese? Maybe swiss cheese? Inspired by the Korean drama, movie, and webtoon, I present to you the Cheese in the Trap Cardi. This cheesy, cozy, fitted knit cardigan is the perfect garment in cool fall weather.

The Pattern

The Cheese in the Trap Cardi is a fitted cardigan worked bottom-up with set-in sleeves with 2 strands held together. The yarn used was Yarn Bee 44th Street in Mustard. Roughly 2,000 yards of yarn are needed to complete the only size offered at the moment. The yarn is considered a category 3 (DK) but is a thinner DK weight yarn and can be found at Hobby Lobby.


The Cheese in the Trap Cardi is only offered in size XS/S. Unfortunately, I was unable to figure out the math for this particular design specifically because of the front panels. I am hoping to figure out the grading for this irresistible cardigan next spring. Stay tuned!

Design Story

I was inspired to design this cardigan after watching both the Korean drama and movie of the webtoon, Cheese in the Trap. I had originally thought of making this cardigan a plain yellow garment but another big-time blogger came out with something similar. To not become a "copy-cat", I decided to design my cardigan more fitting to the name I decided to give it. 

When I think of cheese, Swiss cheese always comes to mind which happens to be one of my favorite cheeses. (Brie cheese comes in first place in my heart though.) To represent that holey Swiss cheese, I used the beautiful diamond lace stitch to complete the look.

A lot of time was spent calculating out this detailed garment and I am truly pleased with the way it came out.

The Cheese in the Trap Cardi was a fun design to create and also my favorite out of all the garments that I have designed thus far. Because of this, it makes me sad that I am not able to have this pattern size inclusive. (One day, it will. I promise.)

The Pattern

The Monarch Beanie is worked up in a main and a contrasting color. It is worked from the bottom up and in the round making it an almost seamless project. A little seaming is required at the top of the hat. The hat is worked up with Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice but any worsted weight can be used to make this beanie.



This winter hat provides lots of texture starting from the ribbing at the base and textured front post double crochets in the body of the hat. This stitch gives it a very unique look.



Here is my youngest son enjoying the hat indoors. I've made beanies for my kids before but they really gravitated towards this particular hat.

Design Story

The Monarch Beanie was designed specifically for an event called the Crochet for a Cause which was hosted by Ashley of Edyth Blayn. The event was to crochet as many scarves and hats to give away to a local charity so that those in need could receive one. It was an amazing event and I feel blessed to have been a part of it.

Honey Bee Scarf Crochet Pattern

Tuesday, May 12, 2020




The Honey Bee Scarf crochet pattern is a quick and beginner-friendly design that has the option of using one or two skeins of Lion Brand's Basic Stitch. With the help of open lacework, the scarf comes out with a nice drape.


It is a great winter accessory and this could easily be turned into a nice rectangle wrap by repeating the rows of this pattern. 


The yarn used for this scarf is by far my favorite yarn that they have come out with yet, at least the ones that I have tried.


The basic stitch yarn is a worsted weight that has 185 yards and anti-pilling, which is a plus in my book! They offer an array of color choices so I hope you can find a color that pleases you.


If you are wondering about the color choice I made for my Honey Bee Scarf, it is in Gold Heather. It has a mustard color mixed with some brown.
