Description: Pattern Description: Misses v-neck cardigan in two lengths, and two shell tops. One top features a boat neck, the other is a turtleneck.
Sizes: XS to XL - I had this traced from several years ago in a Medium - I should have retraced a Small but I will next time
Instructions: Kwik Sew always does a great job with their instructions. The order is nice and concise and the results are fabulous.
Changes: I ran short of fabric, due to my own fault. I started cutting my original plan La Mia Boutique magazine sweater but as cutting and looking at the sweater, I didn't want all that collar and ruffled edges. With all this cutting I was short on the fabric for my sleeves, to rectify I added cuffs from the ribbing and it works perfectly for my sweater. One other change, I made corded buttonholes for to help stabilize the buttonholes on the knit.
Please see this corded buttonhole tutorial I put up earlier.
I took a bit of the sweater up in the upper arms and armsyce. I still need to take it up a bit in the waist, feels a bit boxy.
Fabric: Sweater knit with coordinating ribbing from Gorgeous Fabrics
Likes/Dislikes: The look - stylish, chic, and great results are all fantastic likes.
Conclusion: Great looking sweater, a bit big but I can make the adjustments to help that.
