I’ve made this top 5 times now; It’s one of my favorites.
1. Color-Blocked 2. Aqua Tank 3. Rib Floral 4. Gray Contrast
Size: straight 42
- no hem added, it’s long enough.
- sloped 1” out of back neck and tapered to nothing at back hem.
- Added 1.25” to back at hip level.
- Lowered sleeve cap by 1/2” and added 1/4” to each side of sleeve.
Fabric: 1 yard Jewel Print ITY Knit from Maggy London; 95% polyester, 5% lycra; purchased in Nov 2015 from FabricMart with my Fabricista Challenge winnings. It was free for me but listed at $5/yard.
Jalie 3248 Drop Pocket Cardigan
Size: W graded to an AA at the hip.
Fabric: 2 yards Black French Terry (506-BLACK) purchased in Aug 2016 for $12.90 from Stylish Fabrics. It’s very soft, not too thick and not too thin.
I love this drop pocket design, plus there are double front pieces so they act as a full facing. There aren’t many seams visible on this cardigan either – just the sides and sleeves.
I've made this cardi 2 other times. Once in a soft, thin Gray knit for me; and another time in a teal knit for Miss K (unblogged at this time). The more times I sew it the easier the instructions become.
If you are following my Sewing with a Plan from Jan to April, these two makes are shown below in my plan. I've now completed 4 of the 9 makes.
And here are more puppy pics, because… puppies!:
