The first is a second version of one I made many years ago and that I've named my grandfather sweater. Here is the original which I still wear a lot
and here is the new one
The fabric is a medium weight sweater rib knit bought at Fabricville a few years ago. I made the shorter length and added pockets and buttons.
I'm wearing it with a teeshirt made using V8670 out of a cotton knit from Moods.com. Only thing to say here is I don't love this pattern. I was wanting a turtle neck but the picture on the pattern envelope is not accurate. I checked it out on Pattern Review so I knew in advance that it was more of a cowl .
so I altered the neckline a bit but I didn't get it right so added the band instead.
My next cardi is my new love in my wardrobe. I combined the back of M6996 with the front of
M 6844 and by making it one size bigger. I added length and width at the bottom like this
I added p[ockets and I made the collar/band narrower.
Here's what I ended up with . Isn't it great?
The fabric is a sweater knit from Fabricville in oatmeal but it can pass for grey too. I love this thing and I can wear it with jeans ,a dress, or dress pants. It is very versatile and so comfy and pretty, don't you think?
I have a few other things made but they'll keep for next week.
I really hope you had time to sew this week.
