This is a repeat – well, you knew that from the title of this blog post, didn’t you! I think it’s the fourth time that I’ve sewn the Style Arc Nina cardigan.
The pattern description on the webpage isn’t especially forthcoming. Fabulous waterfall front cardigan. That’s all it says at the moment, but I notice that their website is in the process of a major makeover. Maybe that’s all it ever said?
I sewed this one in orange ponte, I think from Darn Cheap Fabrics. The pattern instructions suggest finishing the edges with a rolled edge (on the overlocker) finish. I chose to turn a hem of around 1cm and use a zig-zag stitch to catch it in place.
I’ve been wearing this with the sleeves rolled up a bit, so clearly they need shortening! Next time I have bright orange thread in the sewing machine.
This is easy to sew, with most construction done on the overlocker. Yes, I have orange overlocker thread! I’ve sewn it in a few different types of knits now, and think that it works well in all of them. This is size 12 without any alterations.
Not much more to say about this one really. I like it, or else I wouldn’t have sewn it four times! I doubt that this pattern is ready for retirement yet either.
