This year I've fallen in love with all types of outer wear cardigans and wraps. I like them because you can wear them instead of a coat. Now that I drive to work, I go from my garage at home to a garage at work, so I seldom wear a coat, I don't like to drive wearing a heavy coat. The outer wear cardigan is perfect for this situation.
One of my students gifted me a ponte knit fabric, she did not like so I kindly took it off her hands. As usual, I didn't know what I was going to make with it. I found in my pattern stash McCall's 7262, my fabric is a little heavier than what the pattern required, but it still worked. I can see me wearing this on the weekend to run errands and it will look great with a pair of jeans or leggins and boots.
Although the description on the pattern is "loose fitting sweater coat", it resembles a wrap coat because it snaps at the opposite shoulder then it crosses the front of your body.
I also love the way it looks when it's open.
Whether it's a loose fitting sweater coat or a wrap, I love it.
