Material

Primary Fabric Use knit fabric with about 25% to 50% horizontal and vertical stretch as well as good recovery. French terry, jersey and sweater knit are good choices. Keep in mind knit fabric with more stretch and drape results in a more relaxed and longer fit, and vice versa. Note that the wrong side of the fabric will be visible when worn, so choose your fabric accordingly.

Interfacing Use light-weight knit or tricot fusible interfacing.

Fabric Requirements

Most natural fibers shrink in the wash; be sure to have enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk.

  1. Wallie

    Love the pattern layered concept and it is just a lovely cardigan.

  2. Sharon

    Great pattern and clear instructions. Will definitely make again.

  3. Colleen

    This was the first I2S pattern I made. I was delighted with the fit, the instructions, and added details. I’ve made many more I2S patterns since this one as I’m a big fan now. I made from a heavyweight, low stretch french terry fabric (cuffs were a bit of a wrestle but turned out fine). I am still pondering adding an “after market” separating zipper or toggle / frog closures.

  4. mary

    Unlike many print-out-on-the copier patterns, these required only minimal trimming of the individual sheets when assembling. A great timesaver. The pattern instructions were clear and well thought out. I have to confess that I took some chances and made this in boiled wool and made a collar instead of a hood because there was not quite enough fabric for a hood. The fit is excellent without fitting mods and I am delighted with the end product!

    Pattern very easy to use!

  6. Roxanne

    Comfortable, stylish, cozy– the perfect cardigan.

  7. Mary Ann

    I love the pattern. Easy to follow instructions.

  8. Lisa

    This turned out so well! I love all the little details: the side slits, the tape over the neck seam, the pockets. I know I’m going to be wearing this a lot!

  9. rloharris

    Love the sleek long length. I used french terry and added interfacing at the button area and 2cm buttons to mine. I recommend it to anyone who likes leisurewear or would like to try a cardigan with a hood for a jacket alternative. Sew it in a stripe or bright solid for a nautical look!

  10. Susan

    very happy with my purchase thankyou

  11. Pat

    Great pattern that clearly is designed for coziness. The pattern has a lot of details that make it stand out from other hooded cardigans – the twill tape on the hood neckline seam to prevent stretching out and covers what can be an unsightly seam, generous pockets!, side slits for ease of wearing, and shoulder darts for a flattering fit.

  17. Sheila

    Really love this pattern. As always, well drafted, excellent easy to follow instructions and great attention to details. Casual and stylish. All in all an enjoyable experience.

  18. Alicia

    I love the Itch to Stitch patterns: they are so easy to follow and they look great. I made this cardigan in a green striped jersey fabric, and it looks really good

  19. Kathleen

    Super cute and very clear instructions.

  20. Karen

    True to size. No alterations necessary. Made in sweatshirt fabric and added snaps to make it one of the coziest cardigans I have.

  21. Catherine

    A nice simple pattern

  22. Lovely design. I did modify it to have a lined hood, and attached the band in a way which hid the raw edges. I also graded from a 2 at the shoulders to an 8 at the hip, added 2” to the length, and made the cuffs 2” shorter (and the arms commensurately longer). Wearing the resulting cardi right now! Feeling very smug and loving the pockets! Which I also messed with…

    Quick and easy- flattering! Runs true to size.

  24. Love the pattern. Great service as usual.

  25. Very simple pattern to follow amazing results for a beginner like me really enjoyed making this cardigan , would like pj pattern r leggings thanks

  26. Ann

    Amazing fit without any adjustments, other than shortening the length. Love it!

  27. janet

    It was an awesome sew. Easy to understand directions for a beginner sweet. Thank you for that.

  28. Kadri

    This is a perfect feel good long cardigan. It’s easy to turn it into a bath robe too! 😀 I use mine when I feel chilly in the evenings.

  29. Diane

    Love it! Quick and easy. I’m wearing one now. lol Just wish I knew why the front band wants to fold to the outside (so the serged seam shows) instead of staying flat.

  30. Dolores

    This is a perfect sweater/coat, and very easy to make.

  31. Tiina

    Good pattern!

  32. Anonymous

    Basic cardigan with a good fit

  33. Deborah

    Kennis, I love your patterns. I’m a mature woman, so seeing people my age and size wearing their creations helps. You have been hitting home runs lately, keep up the good work. I love that you are efficient and have thought everything through. Good fabric usage – nothing is wasted.

  34. Sarah

    Loved it, the pattern went together really well.

How to choose your size

  1. Compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table, choose the size that best fits your bust. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  2. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  3. Compare your hip circumference (widest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  4. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.
  5. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the garment. The instructions for lengthening or shortening are included in the pattern.
