Papercut Aomori Twist Sweater

Continuing on with what has become “The Winter of Sweaters,” I have for you a new Papercut Patterns Aomori Twist Top. I thought the twist design looked cool and I liked the way it was constructed (make sure you follow the instructions in order, this isn’t the kind of pattern where you can just jump around to different parts). This sweater knit came from Surge. It’s double sided and I used the soft, solid side…

Green Rib Knit Sew House Seven Toaster Sweater

I see more sweaters on the horizon… For this one, I decided to try out Sew House Seven’s Toaster Sweater #1. I liked the chunky hem band and cuffs and the funnel neck and I thought the ribs on this fabric would stand out against all the seam lines. The fabric is from Surge and I have to admit, I was a little disappointed when it arrived and looked a lot brighter in person than…

Plus, at-home pattern grading isn’t too…

***We’re continuing onward with the guest posts while I’m on vacay! Today I’m excited to have the lovely Lizz from A Good Wardrobe here sharing an awesome modification for my own pattern! I’m so flattered!   Lizz is currently living my own personal dream – going to school for pattern design in one of the coolest cities in the world and calling her wardrobe “good” is a total understatement. When I first came across her blog…

Karen Cardigan

Another unfinished project checked off my list. This cardigan is a Burdastyle pattern and I really like working with knits (using a serger is super fast on seams!) and I’m low on sweaters this year so I decided to give it a try. The fabric is this lovely cream organic cotton jersey knit. It is slightly heavier than t-shirt fabric so the sweater is perfect for chilly restaurants or movie theatres (I’m always cold in…
