Hi everyone! I hope all is well with you. Here in the USA, it is winter, and I love this time a year. The air is crisp, and you get to wear layers and comfy sweaters. Don’t you just love the fall and winter? Usually I don’t sew as much this time a year, but this year I was determined to add some comfy pieces to my wardrobe. To start my cozy winter collection, I decided to make a cardigan, because it is a great layering piece, and soft, cozy sweater knits are perfect to warm you up on those cold days.
For this project, I used the speckled knit in black from Melanated Fabric (Sold Out). It is a soft and luxurious knit with a four way stretch. It is 57″ in width, and has multicolored specks all over it. The fabric is thick, but not very heavy, which is why it is perfect for cardigans and oversized sweaters.
Pattern Used/Size Cut
I used the Annie Cardigan by Mimi G Style to create my cardigan. The Annie is a PDF pattern that ranges from sizes XXS – 2XL. You can print at home, but if you are like me, and do not want to spend the day taping papers together, then you can send it out to a copy shop. I send my patterns to PDF Plotting to be printed. I will let you know that it is best to wait until you have at least three patterns or more to be printed because of the shipping fee. The pants that I am wearing was self-drafted by me a few years ago.
I absolutely love this pattern. I did not have to make any modifications, and the fit and length is perfect. I usually have to shorten the length of patterns that I use, which makes me love this pattern even more. The pattern call for buttons to be added, however, I did not add buttons to mine. I plan on making this pattern again, so I will be adding buttons to the next one.
