It was part of a pattern parcel and I liked the options for the sleeves. Also, the open front cardigan was a different design.I miss pattern parcels! I love supporting independent artists.
So I made one for myself with a light grey and white striped light weight knit.
The front view. Nice and easy
Now the story is not over. For mother's day (yes I have slacked that long with photos, don't judge) I made a cardigan for my mom. Actually, I made her 2 cardigans as she couldn't decide which color she wanted. Since it is my mom, I said I'll make you 2!
I first began cutting this gorgeous blue knit.You can see the pattern pieces and everything that it entails It takes a bit more fabric than I thought it would.
Here are the end cardigans I made for my mom. The other one was with the tribal top hat fabric I had used to make a skater dress (click here).
