Knot-ical Cardigans

Added Apr 5, 2014

Southern, Califo...






Two “draped front” cardigans made by a Style Arc Abby cardi pattern. There were only 3 pattern pieces to work with (front, back, sleeve), which makes it one of the simplest to sew. The fronts are joined at one center seam that forms the center of the collar. I used an alternative method (“the burrito or sausage method”) to achieve a neater finish on the inside of the collar and the front facing ).
