So my parents are in town and my husbands sister just arrived in town, we are in the middle of refinishing our kitchen (man oh man that is a lot of work) and then I get hit with a massive sinus infection. So with out making a ton of excuses (even though I think that is a pretty valid list) I may skip I few lessons, and re-visit them in a little bit. However, I did manage some time this week to make a garment using some of the lessons from this week. It is a cozy fall cardigan! September is here, which means fall is coming up sooner rather than later and I can't wait. I thought I would kick it off with a cozy cardigan since, there is nothing better than cozy layers.
Especially with contrasting textures are added in.
So let's get started shall we?
drafting instructions HERE I made my pattern following a knit top of my daughters. The only difference is I made the sleeves longer and I cut them from the end of the existing sleeve. (that way they are already hemmed and sewn up the side) I also cut the front piece down the middle and then I ended up angling the neck in to trim the corner. (but you could leave it I just hate when it flaps down) I also followed the instructions for facing and cut out my facing.
