This is another easy design based on any t-shirt pattern with fitted sleeves you’d like to use. The describtion I give here is for jerseys, however I wouldn’t recommend using very stretchy knits. If you want to make something similar in a drapey non-stretch fabric, use a blouse pattern or something like that as a base (without stretch, the back width needed will be more, and you’ll need wider sleeves). As the only parts of the t-shirt pattern body that will be used in the final pattern are the back and shoulders, choose your size based on the fit of those (so for example, full busted ladies may want to go down a size)
basic fitted t-shirt pattern (like Burdastyle’s Lydia), measuring tape, paper, ruler. Fabric need will depend on your choice of length of the cardigan and amount of drape at the front, but for a version close to mine, you need about 2 metres. This design is unsuited for fabrics with an ugly ‘bad side’
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
