This cardigan is made from a wool knit purchased from the Mood NYC store during my trip with Barbara. The minute I touched the wool I knew it would be used for my tried and true Burda pattern 8869.
Monday mornings are cold in my office. I’m sure that’s because I sit in front of a big window and the building has no heat all weekend…and don’t let it be a three day weekend because then it takes half the morning for my area to warm up. So I always dress a little warmer on Mondays and this cardigan will fit the bill.
The fabric was bordered in ivory which I cut off and used to make the front bands. They are a little skinnier than what the pattern calls for but they work in this instance.
The buttons add a little sparkle to the front of the cardigan. The hems on the sleeves and the bottom of the cardigan were sewn with a twin needle.
Since it’s a tried and true pattern that I’ve made 30 or 40 times, it was a breeze to sew and is a great addition to my work wardrobe…but most importantly it’s warm!
A few more shots…
…as always more later!
