I emailed Alicia, curator of Swoon Patterns and the Swoon blog for permission to use the logo in one of my images for Pinterest. (Click here to pin my Scarf Neck Cardigan:)

She said, “Admittedly I’m not a clothing designer, so I hope it worked well for you despite that:)“.

How very modest, because it’s a fabulous pattern. I can’t wait to try a bag! Also, I like that she writes lots of happy faces, like me.

There is a diagram that shows how the pattern pieces fit together, and a list of steps to put it together. You won’t have any trouble if you’ve set a sleeve in before. I needed the illustration to see how the neck and shoulders fit together; but didn’t need the directions.

This is a lighter weight jersey knit from Girl Charlee. I used red and pink thread in my serger, so you can hardly see any finishes on the inside. I finished all the hems (except sleeves) with my serger too. I normally don’t, but I think it looks fine in this case. I graded the size 10 up to a 12 for Bella.

By the way, I’m not freezing my kid out. We have snow on the ground in these photos, but it was 60 degrees out.

All the snow melted in one day; and a now we have snow again after some briefly nice weather. You don’t even know how to dress here. I’m like an old lady, capable of griping about the weather for hours. But I won’t today.

I’m hoping to do some self care sewing, if I can survive these kids all stuck in the house. It has taken me all day to write these few paragraphs…I’d better go before they

too late.

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    I am finally getting around to commenting on this post… can’t remember how many days after I read it. Ha! Love the cardi. Your stripe matching is spot on! Somehow I missed this pattern, but I have a grown up version saved on my computer. I am hoping to give it a go soon.

    60 degrees. I’m so jealous. Your Bella just keeps getting more and more gorgeous. I’m loving this scarf neck cardigan. I had no idea that’s what these were called…definitely one of my favorite things to wear. Love it all.

    Fantastic cardigan. I will check out swoon. What I wouldn’t do to have 60 degrees! Snowing again here right now. Can I gripe just a little? But really, Bella looks beautiful and happy.

    The cardigan turned out great! I have that same fabric in black/grey from Girl Charlee. Now I know what to do with it. :) Love the merged hems. Bella looks happy, hope you guys are getting adjusted after the move.

    This cardigan is a great fit on Bella and looks fabulous. I do so love the style and must check out the pattern to make for me. I love longish flowy tops.
