Cardigan

Scarf Neck Cardigan

While browsing the Swoon website for bag patterns I came across this Scarf Neck Cardigan pattern, a free PDF download,

The pattern was a bit fiddly to put together all 32 pages!  but its free! so that’s no big deal.

I did differ from the pattern instructions in one way which was to put the sleeves in flat and then sew the arm and side seams up.  I have never done this before and  it worked really well.    I don’t have an overlocker so used the stretch stitch on my sewing machine.  Also the sleeves are very long, or perhaps I have short arms!

The fabric is a cotton stretch jersey reduced in the sale from Minerva.

So its not the most glamorous cardigan in the world, but its so comfortable, great for pottering about at home.

  1. This is awesome, I’m going to go and download it right away! I feel your pain with the pages – I printed off and assembled a 44 page pattern the other day. Always worth it in the end though, isn’t it? 🙂
