I am making the wrap cardigan now, out of sheer gray wool knit. I like seeing these variations. I wonder how the ruffly ones look on non-skinny people... like me. My fav is the diagonal buttoned "Best of the Bunch".
Thanks for posting.

I hadn't noticed that one, it's nice. I think the ruffles would be ok as long as they drape and don't stand up too much (I'm not skinny either). I think I might get around to sewing up that cardi this year.

This one, of boiled wool with a partial ruffle, could be nice for cooler weather. It would be good to lose some of the big applique flower thing, though. That's a lot of fancy on one little sweater-jacket.

Oh, you are right, the body of "summer's reminder" is really nice. As you suggest it would be even nicer without the "summer's reminder" flowers. Boiled wool. Interesting. I like the flattened ruffles, and boiled wool ones would probably stay exactly that way.

I love the Best of the Bunch one! It's adorable. Anyone seen a pattern like it? Onion has an off kilter coat pattern but not with the bunching at the buttons.

I agree Elona, if they could edit the flower design, it has plenty of potential. I think with my body type, this would be my choice Sea Fan Sweater

This is as close as I can find. Of course it ends at hip and doesn't have that nice flounce. But might be a place to start.

Just wanted to note that I was at the store today and looked at "Best of the Bunch". Surprisingly soft and stretchy, made from felted wool jersey. Brilliant.

Ooooh, love, love this. Do you think the structured pattern would do well on this? I am too much of a beginner on adapting patterns to see how you can add a lot of fabric on the front so it drapes and softly folds like that.

Would love to see a pattern a little closer. Anyone know of one?
