I love the look of infinity cardigans. They can easily go from being comfy to Helmut Lang-y.
Here’s How To Make an Infinity Cardigan:
- 1.5 yards of medium-weight knit (Mine just happened to be reversible)
- Tailor’s chalk
- Super sharp fabric scissors
- Pins, pins, pins!
- Zigzag stitch for arms
- Zigzag stitch for cuffs
- straight stitch for neckline hem
First, I draped the fabric over my brand new dress form.
I cut the length I wanted for the cardi (forgot to take a pic!)
Then I cut out the sleeves using an existing shirt pattern. Pin the sides, right sides together.
Try on the sleeves to make sure it’s the right length, opening size. I’m making this for my friend, so I’m crossing my fingers that it’ll fit!
Then I cut traced and cut out the arm holes.
It’s hard to see my chalk markings. Maybe I should invest in a better camera? ^_^
Next, I pinned and sewed the sleeves to the body of the cardigan.
Now, it’s time to hem!
I thought it would be cute with the cuffed sleeve showing the cool reversible fabric.
Voila! That’s it!
