Yes, a wool cardigan in June, because English summers are fickle!! I absolutely love this pattern from the March Burda magazine, and it sewed up beautifully be be aware that THIS PATTERN RUNS VERY SMALL! I was warned by other reviewers so I added width to both of the side seams which was enough, or you could otherwise go up a size.
I have quite a few other tips and tricks for this pattern so please head over to Fehrtrade.com!
Italian brown merino wool jersey I bought off etsy (now sold out). It’s so thin and fine, but robust enough to not stretch all over the place, and takes a pressing really well. I used a mix of the sewing machine, overlocker/serger, and coverstitch here and the merino took to all of them beautifully.
