Hoodie Cardigan – McCalls M6802

Its Autumn (my favourite season) and that means sewing with knit fabrics and making a long hoodie cardigan. Sewing for comfort!

I made this cardigan in a lovely cotton jersey forest green knit fabric. There are 4 versions of the cardigan in the sewing pattern. I chose view B, cut a size 10 and lengthened the sleeves slightly. I bought this gorgeous tartan bias tape from a notions market stall in the beautiful town of Bath.

I must say that this is a rather smart hoodie, it is versatile and can be worn over a dress or trousers.  A touch of tartan really makes it!

I hope that I will enjoy wearing my cardigan just as much as I had enjoyed making it.

There are more knit garments to come so watch this space! Do you enjoy sewing with knits?

    That looks so comfy and cozy, Caroline! The tartan bias is perfect with the green. I love knits too for the Fall. I made 4 knit tops in early October and wear them a lot. Right now I have been taking a break from sewing and am deep into knitting but yes, I would like to make some more knit tops.

    I love hoodies. I rarely wear the hood up but I think the way the hoodie shapes around the neck makes a lovely feature. Does this button up or is it worn open?
