Material

Primary Fabric Use light-weight knit fabric with at least 50% stretch. If your knit fabric has more or less stretch, you may need to use a smaller or larger size. Jersey, sweater knit and double knit are great choices. A lace that does not tear easily can be used for the Front panels, as shown in the sample garment. Crochet lace is a good choice.

Interfacing Use light-weight knit or tricot fusible interfacing.

Other Material

  • Six (6) 5/8" (1.6 cm) buttons for the cropped length
  • Seven (7) 5/8" (1.6 cm) buttons for the regular length
  • 6" (15 cm) of 3/8" or 1/2" (1 cm or 1.25 cm)-wide straight fusible stay tape (or you may cut your own using light-weight woven fusible interfacing on the straight grain)

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.

    so handy. a great wardrobe staple

  3. Anonymous (verified owner)

    The perfect wardrobe builder. This versatile cardigan can be dressy or casual. The shorter length is the perfect dress sweater. The bands lay flat which is a big plus to making this cardigan look polished.

    I’m in love with this cardigan! It’s amazing, the normal length to wear with pants, the short length to wear over a dress.
    Just made my first one. The fit is perfect! It’s figure flattering, and with the good instructions it’s easy to make.
    I’m sure I’ll make a whole bunch of these cardigans. A matching one for each dress 😜 or blouse.
    Thank you, I’ve finally found a cardigan pattern that suits me

    love this little cardigan a staple wardrobe item

  14. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I bought it and in two Werks i Made 3 of Thema. I would like, if you would design it with breastdarts for bigger sizes…there is a tiny, tiny pleat at the armholes.

    I just love this pattern. True to size and easy instructions to follow. I have been looking for a really good cardigan pattern and I am so glad to find the Lisbon Cardigan. I highly recommend the pattern even for beginners.

  16. Bernice (verified owner)

    This cardigan is the perfect length and shape. I love the cardigan I made!

  17. arnika1266 (verified owner)

    I love love love this pattern! The instructions are very clear, the pattern is well-drafted and the finished cardigan fits me very well.
    I whipped up my first cardigan yesterday in 4 hours, cutting the fabric included. Considering there is no bust dart and I wear a DD cup bra, I was wondering about the fit beforehand but found that there is no full bust adjustment needed. Same goes for a full bicep adjustment which I usually have to do but skipped with this pattern, there is enough ease.
    Only things I did change was shortening the sleeves (my arms are rather short) and skipping the buttons and the buttonholes in favor of large snaps which I put on a satin ribbon in a matching color, then sewing that ribbon on the button bands.

    I can’t believe that there are not more rave reviews of the Lisbon cardigan pattern. I love it! Made my first one yesterday. Made my second today! I love the fit around the neck and shoulders. It’s a really well drafted pattern with very clear, detailed instructions. I made the regular length with long sleeves. It is the perfect length for me (I’m 5’4″) so if you are taller, you may want to add a little to the length. I shortened the sleeves by 1″ as I don’t like sleeves that go over my hands. I also added an extra button where the bottom band and bodice join as I found that my cardigans gaped a little there. Didn’t have too much trouble with the buttonholes, though I did sew them first before sewing the band onto the cardigan as a “just-in-case” measure. Excellent pattern! Any chance there could be an add on for a V-neck version????

    Made 2 so far and will make more. Great pattern to do a quick cardigan to go with other makes. So pleased with it

  20. cyberanna (verified owner)

    A must have! I had fun assembling mine. The instructions are very well done. The whole process took me one afternoon from beginning to end (cutting included). I will make again for sure, it has endless possibilities and the finished product looks great.
    Only difficult part was to sew nice buttonholes in knit. I have found some useful tutorials online to ace it next time with tear away embroidery film.

  21. theruffledstitch (verified owner)

    This pattern is a must have! It is the perfect addition to any pattern stash. I know I will be making this on repeat! The
    pattern itself is also very detailed making this a easy sew!

  22. teresaschwarz (verified owner)

    I helped test Lisbon and it is a great wardrobe staple that sews up quickly and beautifully! The ease makes it comfortable, but it has enough fit to look sleek and stylish for work. I’m going to be using this pattern again and again as it goes with anything and has so many options for seasonal & occasion variation! I highly recommend this pattern!

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.
