I had the pleasure of sewing the Greenpoint Cardigan. The pattern is from size 12 months - 12 years which is great because it can be used for many years. The pattern walks you through making a classic cardigan.
The fabric that is recommended for this cardigan is: cotton jersey, interlock, 1x1 rib, sweater knit, waffle knit and velvet. I chose to use cotton jersey and made the waistband in rib. The guide for how to sew the cardigan is so well described and has great and useful illustrations that are very detailed.
Once I decided to make the cardigan I knew exactly what fabric to use. I have the most beautiful fabric that gets my imagination to grow. My daughter who is 7 years old love this fabric with all the colors and fun.
The Greenpoint Cardigan is perfect for the cooler weather and change of season. I think that a cardigan is almost indispensable because it can be used over the dress, with a pair of jeans, or any other outfit you can come up with. Another fantastic thing about this pattern, is that the cardigan can be created for both boys and girls, that´s great! I made a colorful and fun model for my daughter, but next time it will be one for my son, who is certainly missing such a cardigan in his wardrobe. Definitely a pattern I can recommend as yet another "must have."
