Merino Cardi

I made a cardigan.

It’s McCalls 6408 (combination of view B and D) made from 100% merino knit wool from Global Fabrics. There’s not a huge amount to say on this pattern except that it is super comfortable and I’ll definitely be making it again. I have worn it more than any other item I’ve made, probably because it’s incredibly versatile, comfortable and I think it’s pretty classy too. The truth is that I finished this cardi over a month ago and I’ve worn it (what feels like) every second day!

The only edit I made to this very easy pattern was that I had to take the sleeve width in by about an inch on either edge. These were really kimono width sleeves that kept creeping up my arm – not fulfilling their primary duty of keeping my wrist warm! And yes I am wearing my Lady in Red Dress – DOUBLE ME MADE BONUS!

  1. Very nice cardigan. Practical and warm, yet looks very light and stylish! (P.S., I would love to enter your giveaway, but the patterns are too big for me, and I’m not yet at the grading down stage). BUT, I will still like your facebook page!! I have one, as well. 🙂
