Style # 1930 Difficulty: - 2 / 5
A cocoon style cardi designed to make you feel snug on winter days. The front cuts away in a gentle curve to the back, the back covers the bottom. A fast and easy sew.
A relaxed fit tothe body, the sleeves from elbow down are fitted. The back is long enough to cover the bottom. A bit of ingenious pattern making makes the back neck become the front yoke and create a snug cocoon effect that envelops the body. Lengthen shorten lines included. The finished garment will make you smile.
The pattern is a multi-size pattern to fit the size range of XXS - 4XL.
Relaxed fit. The lower sleeves are fitted.
Please see the "More Details" tab for further information
Due to the way the pattern has been draped, to fit correctly at the neckline you will need a fabric with really good stretch - 70% plus is recommended. Think Sweater knits, Hatchi or Stable Rib. If using Ribbing you may need to size down. Double faced fabrics are advised as the underside of the fronts may be seen when worn.
This is a professionally drafted fashion industry construction pattern, which I have made and graded to industry standard guidelines.
