It is $5 weekend at 5 out of 4 and this week the Eleanor Cardigan is on sale!
Another Eleanor Cardigan is in the books err…closet for me! I am getting some good use out of this pattern. I think this is number 5 for me. I made the mid-thigh length, but didn’t adjust for height so it falls a little lower. This pattern comes in 3 different lengths. Mid-thigh, knee and duster length are all included options. There are also multiple sleeve lengths, a pocket option, and the option of adding a hood.
I used this wonderfully soft Hacci sweater knit to make this Eleanor cardigan. This fabric is available from Stitchin’ Pretties. I love the pink and black combo and the fact that is it plaid is super cool! Here is the link to pick up some Gina for yourself! If you don’t love pink and black plaid, there are 13 other Hacci sweater knits at Stitchin’ Pretties. Literally, something for everyone! I used some leftover black Liverpool scraps to line my hood and make the band.
This pattern sewed up quickly using my serger for the entire project up to the point of hemming.
I used a simple zig zag stitch to hem the sleeves and bottom. I used the 4x for the bust and graded to a 5x. I also used the 5x for the sleeves so I didn’t have to adjust the sleeves to fit my bicep. That is a bonus in my book! I choose to use the looser fitting sleeve option of the pattern as well.
I paired my new Hacci Eleanor with the 5oo4 Virginia Tank. I used double brushed poly for that tank. I have shown so many versions of the Virginia Tank on my blog. It is my favorite!!Again here are all the options for Virginia. 🙂
