Description

With such a frightfully cold winter in Sydney I needed to add to my winter wardrobe, so I made another wrap cardigan just like the Aubergine Chameleon (sadly this cardigan has died, the knit fabric did not stand up to the rough treatment that me and my kids give my clothes!).

This time I used a silk jersey and i love it so much more. It just has a better drape and more comfortable fit.

This time around I cut the material into a back section and front section, adding the sleeves in at the side seam. I like it much better this way as you don’t get the visible seam line at the back (or front) depending how you put the cardi together.

I shortened the wrap part of this one slightly, as I found previously I was having to twist the cardi to make a better fit. It is now approx 120cm instead of 150cm.

I also made the back length about 60cm, smply because that fitted the width of the fabric that I had. But the extra length on the back means it is sitting much nicer.

I still love the versatility in the ways you can wear this cardi.

    I like this a lot. I’ll have to keep my eyes open for some good fabric to make it out of.

      the silk jersey is really cool for it, but any jersey would work well I reckon.
