Current Tags What is a Tag:
Pattern Description:
This review is for the cardigan from this pattern.

Pattern Sizing:
I always make a size smaller than my measurements call for with this pattern.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Somewhat but I heavily modified the cardigan shaping.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is my go-to pattern for tees, and the cardigan was equally well drafted.

Fabric Used:
Thin knits

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I heavily modified this pattern to suit. I eliminated the belt and the buttons. I changed the seam allowances on the sleeves and at the sides and I added shaping to the side seams based on the tee pattern.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I can't say enough how happy I am with this version of the cardigan. After making the first one I made a second one the same day. I can see this versatile cardigan getting a lot of use.

Conclusion:
I have wanted to replicate Angela Wolf's twin sets but haven't been able to find a pattern for a cardigan that fits like hers. Jalie has a couple but one has huge built in pockets and the other has pleats. I just want clean lines.

There are more details and alteration pics on my blog.

Also there is a dedicated page for all the versions I have made of this pattern.

It looks like you nailed that look! Thanks for a great review. I have that pattern and never thought about leaving off the sleeves.
