I made 2 versions of the Fae cardigan The deep purple is the cardi size with routine neckband and also light sleeves. The blue-green is the tunic length with shawl collar and also fitted sleeves. Right here are some photos of me using it:

I prefer the fitted sleeves. The light sleeves are quite, but they obstruct. I think the stolen collar is prettier, yet I like both the stole and normal neckbands. Beware that the shoulder seams on this cardigan pattern are slouchy. They drop part means down your arms.

I seem like the sizing is a little bit huge from Made for Mermaids, so if you’re in between dimensions, pick the smaller sized one. This Fae cardigan is very low.

Here are the ideas you’ll require to purchase to sew the Fae cardigan:

  • 2-3 yards of material, depending on the size you wish to make.
  • Control thread

I utilized a serger to finish this entire job. You can make use of an embroidery machine, but I believe it’s simpler to sew knits with a serger and me such as the finished edge it develops.
