Mommy and Me Tour

Yay another EYMM blog tour!  For this fun blog I pulled out one of Kymy's patterns that I tested the girl version of quite a while ago; the four season cardigan.

  I have seen quite a few floral drapey cardigans in the store but because I sew there was no way I was going to purchase one when I knew I could definitely make one.  Of course, I already have a very long list of things that I refuse to buy because I can sew it.  But this particular item got bumped up to the top and I'm so happy it did.

Where I live we have very bipolar weather.  It can start out freezing, become quite warm in the afternoon and finish off with wind therefore layers are essential.  This cardigan is perfect!  You can use any type of knit, the only limit is your imagination.  This particular knit is a sheer mesh like material.  Sweater knit, lace and jersey would all make excellent cardigans also.

Little Miss is so goofy

The pattern is available in girls sizes newborn to 18 and womens sizes XS-5X.  There are two different lengths to choose from, cardigan and duster (the length I chose).  In addition there are 5 sleeve options, sleeveless (like a vest), short, 3/4 (what I chose), long and longer.
To add a little interest I edged the entire cardigan in crochet lace.  I love the Bohemian feel it gave our cardigans.  Fringe would be fun too!  My daughter loved this cardigan and I know it will lots of wear.
