I wear a lot of cardigans. I decided it was time to start making a few myself. McCall's pattern 6996 was super easy to make and for one of my first times sewing a knit garment, I think it turned out excellent.
I did an awful job sewing the back so I just braided a few scraps and sewed it on. After realizing that it didn't cover the biggest flaw on the back, I was forced to seam rip and re-stitch.
An amazing friend of mine gifted me this fabric and I could tell she didn't quite want to part with it. I decided to make her a little something out of it as a thank you and so she could still enjoy it.
The free pattern from Sew4Home.com was super easy and I love the way it turned out.
