Comfy Knit Cardigan

Once again, I tested for Sonia Estep Designs. This time I tested the Juliette cardigan. Who doesn’t love a comfortable cardigan? Well, I love cardigans, but can never find what I am looking for in the store. The last cardigan I purchased was a complete disappointment, and from that day I was determined to make my own comfy knit cardigan.

Within a few weeks, I was invited and accepted to test the Juliette cardigan. It is a very easy pattern to sew. It is a knit cardigan that can be made at three different lengths, short, midi, and duster length. Also, it has two sleeve options, 3/4 sleeves as well as long sleeve. I opted to make the midi long sleeve version.

Fabric Selection

I used a lightweight jersey knit that I picked up from Hobby Lobby a few months back. I also made the same version out of some Liverpool knit fabric that I had in my stash. In comparison, the Liverpool knit version of the cardigan is more structured and will keep you warmer. The lightweight jersey knit has a less structured appearance, but is super comfortable, and by far is my favorite out of the two.

The pattern is easy and a beginner can easily tackle this project. It has four pattern pieces. There is a front, back, pocket, and facing. Once the pocket is sewn on, you can finish the entire garment using a serger machine. Construction took me less than an hour from start to finish.

Overall Review

If you are comfortable with sewing knits, then sewing the Juliette cardigan will be a breeze. If you are unsure about sewing knits, this is a great pattern to start with. There are minimal pattern pieces, and no advanced sewing techniques are needed to complete the pattern. I love this super comfy knit cardigan. I wear it frequently when running errands, and sometimes I throw it on around the house when I am working.
