Blue Aspen Cardigan

I found this pattern on a web site Its a great pattern. I have use a blue & white flecked single knit. I applied the facing band like I would bias tape. On the right side I used a top stitch as I do not have a serger. I think I will make others in the shades that I need. Right now I am working on putting things together for an office wardrobe.

This is a great pattern from hot – they are cross promoting their pattern with the knits on sale on the webpage. I like to give entrepreneurs my business. Very thoughtful to share with people. I did modify the pattern because I did not have enough material. I made the cuff of the sleeve a single cut and raised it to make it a 3/4 sleeve. I wanted to do it with a full double cuff in another material.

This is my muslin. I will wear it. I like the button. That was not part of the pattern. Yet I know myself & I like to feel snuggy. I also do like button up cardigans because it adds to a business casual look.

This project was affordable under $5 of materials. I will probably make a simple pull up skirt to match.
Will certainly make another in black. Red totally would work – for summer a light jersey would be ideal,

My mom has already placed an order! I still need to press it. However want to wear it to work tomorrow! My cat approves and has supervise the construction of this garment.

    Your cardigan is going to look nice on you when pressed. The button works well.

      Thank you Rita. The button is actually two layered together but looks like one.
