Fed up with not finding the perfect sweater knit & matching cuff ribbing – and not having the patience to knit a whole sweater from scratch, I experimented with sew & knit. I found this lovely sweater like fabric in Mood. Unfortunately it’s a woven. But never mind. I’ll pretend it’s a knit. I used most for an A-line cowl-neck sweater. The leftover I was able to squeeze a shrug out of. The base pattern is Burdastyle 2013-11-111. But I added hand-knitted ribbing collar – back hem extension. It’s about the level of hand-knitting I can manage! The fit is a bit snug because the pattern was designed for knit, but mine is of course non-stretch woven. But good enough for a Spring / Fall cover-up over sleeveless tops. More details on my blog
