Did I mention that the Scarf Neck Cardi pattern that was in my last blog post also comes in children’s sizes?
I’ve sewn this cardi for each of the girls in the past, and Stella has worn hers a great deal. It’s a little too small now, so it was time to sew her another in the next size up. This is the size 7/8.
The fabric is the same wool/acrylic blend knit from Super Cheap Fabrics in Brunswick that I sewed my scarf neck cardi from. It is super soft and has a lot of give to it. I bought this colour intending to use it for myself, but Stella pulled it out of the pile as her cardi preference. How could I refuse? It’s a great colour on her.
As with my cardi, construction was on the overlocker. I used a zig-zag stitch on the sleeve and cardi hems to secure them, but used a rolled edge finish on the overlocker for the front edge of the cardigan to allow it to either fall forward or turn back and still look neat.
Stella finds this a very easy cardigan to wear – I’ll be making yet more for her. I wonder which of “my” pieces of fabric I’ll have to give up next!
