Japanese cardigan

Here is one of the sweetest and most easy projects I ever work with!
I fall in love with this fabric- don’t know what it is but it’s soft, a little bit stretchy and in beautiful orange color with a little yellow stars. Cutie!
Pattern for this cardigan is from some Japanese website, you can downloaded it for free and you don’t need to know the language in order to understand the instructions! I’m SO gonna make another one. Or two :)

Material Notes

some kind of blends, I suppose…




Garment Type
Casual, Romantic


Polka Drops

      unfortunately fabric is sooo expensive in DK, so buy most of mine in pieces, already cut off and on sale. I just recently bought some for a dress I wanna make for my cousins summer-wedding. Just the fabric, no lining, no zipper, nothing but fabric, cost me 31$! Luckily I made some money by sewing up a dress for a friend, so there’s a balance ;-)

      I just print it in a actual size, without enlarging it or anything. My size is European 38 and it fits me fine. For the neck trim I just followed the diagram, you have that in instruction file.

      thanks, glad you like it! For all I know there’s no way to convert it into English language, but since all instructions are in pictures and diagrams there’s no real need for reading or anything.
      Anyway, this may be helpful – it’s a Japanese sewing and pattern terminology that I found on some blog:
