The Bries Cardigan - sewing pattern for sizes 1y-12y

Cardigans are so boring and predictable and Girly loves twists and turns and things that come from her shoulders so I thought I’d start the buttons right on her shoulder and continue that collar line all the way down to the bottom! This sewing pattern is testing for sizes 12mo-12 and uses jersey or interlock knit fabrics and uses either a ribbed bias binding or Fold Over Elastic. Snaps close the cardigan so it’s ultra easy to fasten; no fiddling with buttons.

Sewing level recommended: Beginner

All of The Eli Monster sewing patterns come with full color photographs to compliment the step by step instructions. Never second guess where you are supposed to sew or place. All pattern pieces are computer drawn; to save paper, cutting dimensions for rectangular pieces is included in leu of drawn out pieces.
