Fabric purchased Friday afternoon. Cardi began and completed Sunday afternoon. Cardi worn Sunday night. One of the fastest things I've ever made.
Ottobre 02/2015 #13 Knit Cardigan has recently been made 3 times, with 3 different fabrics and now this unique sweater knit makes a 4th. So to say I was familiar with the pattern would be an understatement. No closures, no interfacing, front is simply turned back after being caught in the neckline seam that finishes it all off nicely, all pretty much sewn on the serger. A nice quick 'n easy make. Hmmmm, not sure why I traced a size 36 when I'm a size 38 in Ottobre, but that's okay as it fits me well. It's always good to doublecheck sizing as I'm a size 36 in Burda, a 38 in Ottobre and a size 12 in the big 4.
All About Fabrics, for the open-only-once-a-month-to-the-public textile outlet mill where I always come home with lots of treasures. There was no disappointment this time either! Such FUN! The minute I saw this chunky sweater knit fabric, I knew it had to be another Ottobre cardi. Fabric cost @$7.50 a yard.
Ottobre pants today with the Itch to Stitch Hepburn Turtleneck from last year.
