This pattern has been around for quite some time, but this is the first time I've made it up. I traced it out in a combination of Medium and Large, which is typical of how I trace designs for this pattern line.
The fabric is an acrylic/rayon sweater knit that I discovered at Hancock Fabrics in the fall of 2011. It looks like wool and was easy to cut out and sew. I haven't seen any lately but it does pop up from time to time, so I'll be keeping an eye out for more.
I made both pieces of the set. Here's the shell, which has stash buster potential. It takes less than a yard of 60" wide fabric. There is a seam down the front, but that should be pretty easy to eliminate if a different look is needed.
And here's the cardigan all by itself. It also came together very easily, more so than some McVogueRick patterns that I've used in the past.
I'll be making more versions of this pattern based on how well this effort came out. I even have fabric for the next set picked out already!
