One challenge of this season’s skin print trend is finding an option that suits your own coloring. So we were excited to find this lightweight sweater knit yardage in a range of neutral color options from caramel to chocolate, taupe and gray. A quick-to-sew cardigan was the obvious garment to make from it. I chose McCall 6996 (View C-D) for a couple of reasons …
Second – the sewn-on band front eliminated the need for time-consuming edge finishing and prevented any issue of the wrong side being visible when the garment is worn.
This cardi was under 2 hours from cutting to completed. And it is such a cozy feel that I can hardly wait for chilly weather to start wearing this new wardrobe favorite.
You can see the finished garment and read more detail about the pattern and the process on Pattern Review.
