Simple grey knit cardi

A while back when I stocked up on patterns I picked up this cardi pattern--I love long, loose knits and I figured I can make one, right?  I don't sew on knits often but I bought some nice lightweight charcoal grey on clearance at the same time and they just went together.

The pattern took like... an hour and a half?  I dunno, super fast.  Knits like this to go together real fast, without serging or a whole lot of tricky pressing.

Oh, and I made it long-sleeved.  I took of the hoodie I was wearing when I cut it out and used it on top of the pattern piece to know how long to cut the sleeves!

Anyway here it is, casual and easy to wear!

I think next time I make this pattern I'll make it looooonger than the pattern pieces.  Something tunic-length!

  3. Turned out great! I like yours much better than the images on the pattern. A longer one would be so cozy and look great with boots!

  5. Thanks!! The lightweight knit jersey was at JoAnn on the clearance shelf, got it for half off the clearance price.

    Yeah, long sounds cozy!

  9. It looks way cuter in real life compared to the pattern. I have a similar sweater only it wraps and it has to be the most versitile piece in my entire closet.

  11. I have that pattern and made it up in a heavy knit. It looks awful! Yours is so cute that I might have to give it another try, in a weight with a better drape.
