    I’m new to making any sort of clothing, but I absolutely appreciate this simple yet beautiful pattern. Definitely a style that can be worn throughout the year, especially once I need to go back to a physical office for work.

    This pattern is by far the best free sewing pattern I have ever found! I live in cardigans since it’s chilly in my office all year so it’s a staple! And to make it even better, it comes together so easily!

    I just made this cardigan and I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! It is my new favorite item of clothing. It was easy and quick to sew together…took me an evening and the next morning and it was DONE! Sleeves were a little long but that was easily fixed…I will definitely be making some more, and will be using the child’s pattern to make one for my 8-year old daughter! Thanks for the awesome pattern!

    This was a quick and easy pattern and I Iove the fit. Perfect for hacci sweater knit fabric! I’ll be making a few more. Thank you!

    I have made this pattern twice. Though the pattern calls for a lightweight knit, I used a ponte weight knit for a more tailored look. It worked perfectly. Because of the heavier knit, I mitered the corners in the front. The recipient of the cardis loves them.[email protected]/27128876451/in/dateposted-public/

    I love the look of this cardigan and want to make it but I would like to make it longer. Can this pattern be easily lengthened ?

    This is an amazing pattern – thank you! It’s very flattering to a curvy gal with the princess seams. I just finished my first one and will be making several more. The pattern is so versatile – you can make the perfect cardi for every season.

    LOVE this pattern! I use it all the time – it’s the comfiest cardi and it’s so easy to modify!

    I have made 2 of these for myself….what a flattering fit! I get so many complements whenever I wear them. It took much longer to print, cut & tape the pattern pieces than to sew….;) Again, I found the sleeves to be way to long for me….so just cut off a couple of inches.

    What a quick sew. As long as you follow the layout of the pieces so your fabtic stretches correctly you have an easy go of it. This is a great staple piece.
