I’m making the Esther cardigan – I think. The instructions require 150 cm fabric width. I’ve just laid out my pieces and one of them has to be placed on the fold but is 80 cm wide – meaning that it will never fit onto the required 150 cm fabric! What now? I’ve looked at all of the member projects for this pattern and no one seems to have mentioned this. My fabric is 150 cm wide, and I cannot stretch it to be 160. It is a fairly forgiving, stretchy knit, but I don’t like to start by stretching it to fit my pattern pieces. Can anyone help?
