I picked the Phinney Ridge Cardigan and the Magnuson Vest from Straight Stitch Designs as my prize in The Monthly Stitch‘s Indie Pattern Month contest. Of course I really wanted to sew up both right away, but the cardigan gets first try in this cozy cardigan sweater knit that I got from DG Patterns fabric shop.
I really like the V neck line and the deep cuffs of the Phinney Ridge. The cardigan looks really cute with buttons down the front, but I never button my cardigans and I’m afraid to do button holes on knits, so I go without.
To make my Phinney a little more interesting I used a faux leather for the cuffs and I just love it.
The Pattern: Phinney Ridge Cardigan from Straight Stitch Designs in size medium per her sizing chart and graded to size 12 at the hips. This one is an easy sew and well put together. The instructions have you sew each side of the neckband separately starting from the bottom and moving toward the center back of the neck. This thoughtful step keeps the neckline looking very nice. I basted each side and then finished the seam with my overlocker.
The Fabric: Cardigan sweater knit in cashmere grey. This sweater knit has a small weave making it pretty stable and there is a soft and fuzzy feel on the right side.
As always, thanks for reading today.
