Swoon Patterns: Scarf neck cardigan




I've been searching for a waterfall cardigan pattern for ages, I have a couple of RTW ones that I wear a lot to work that need replacing. I saw this pattern on Thornberry's blog and it seemed to fit all my wants plus a couple more - its a free download (!!!) and it has princess seams.

I cut a sz L and did a 1" FBA. I changed the hem to suit my RTW cardi's, I don't find long cardi's very flattering on me so I like them to sit shorter at the back and sides.



The fabric is a thin rayon jersey from Rathdowne fabrics, its sort of a grey/purple/brown colour.

I left the front centre hem raw and twin needled the bottom hem. I made it all on my serger except for the hem, its a very quick make!

It could do with the shoulders being narrowed next time, but its a casual style and I don't think its that noticeable.
