The Women’s Cardigan Love pattern is waiting for you!!
Let’s jump right in to the details:
There are two length options – mid-thigh and below the knee, so you can take your pick. Don’t you agree the best part of sewing is making exactly what you need? There are also optional side seam pockets and a hood option! You can even choose between making a tank/sleeveless version or a long-sleeved cardigan!
I made two versions of this Cardigan during the testing process. My first one, I used the gorgeous deep plum French Terry from Sly Fox Fabrics. It was amazing and soft and cozy and pretty, and not stretchy enough for this pattern. Pay attention to the stretch percentages, they are there for a reason! My mom now has an amazing and soft and cozy and pretty cardigan! I made a 4x and she wears a XL for comparison as to why stretch percentages matter.
The second time around was better. I used a lovely double brushed poly which I picked up in a destash group last year. I had gotten 4 yards of this stripe design, so I knew I had enough to work out some pattern matching. The pattern used just under 3 yards in my size. I liked that I was able to make the tails matching! I made the mid-thigh length version. I took 3 inches out for height adjustment because I am only 5’1. I removed it all from the bodice area because in my first version the seam hit across my upper booty area…that is a place, right? Upper booty area?? Anyway, it hits me at an odd place for a seam.
The Cardigan Love is available in sizes XXS-5X. I sewed a 4X graded to a 5X bodice.
On a side note- What do you think of the new Blog colors and heading? I am sort of in love with the black background and dark lilac borders. 🙂
