Description

I made my husband an Andrew cardigan as a Valentine’s Day present.

I didn’t make any adjustments to the pattern. Next time, I’ll lengthen slightly and also trim the shoulders so they are not so wide on him.

Overall, I thought this pattern was really easy and fun to make. I really loved working with the lightweight sweatshirt knit. It’s very soft to wear as well :-)

I did a sew-along for this project on my blog, Sew in Love. There’s pictures of the process of making the cardigan, in 3 parts:

      Thanks Mary. Yes you should definitely make him an Andrew cardigan. It’s certainly much quicker than knitting him one!
