Stripy McCalls 6408

I've had this made for a week or so now but the weather has been so dreadful I haven't been able to take photos. I still only got a couple of pics in between rain downpours so the photos are a bit uninspired!
I really like this pattern, I've made it a few times now (including a slight disaster of a zebra print version last month, sounded like such a great idea but was way too overwhelming once made!) Grey version and Black version.
It has tons of included ease so this is a sz M with a 1" FBA, 2" upper arm width, 3" off the length, graded out at the hips and an added back seam for shaping.

The material is a striped ponte knit from which is out of stock now unfortunately, its thinner than I what I would normally call a ponte but has just enough stretch and was lovely to sew.

I wear one of these cardigans at least once or twice a week through winter, they are so warm and comfy and so easy to throw on with a pair of jeans in the morning.


  1. This's is such a cute jacket/sweater

  2. Lovely - one of your previous versions prompted me to buy the pattern - now I just have to make it! Love your blue striped one. Very nice.

  3. Suzy, this looks beautiful and warm - exactly what you need at the moment! The stripes look great - a nice splash of colour for winter...J

  4. That's really cute - looks like you found the perfect fabric for it.

  5. I love the stripe- this is fab! And also, epic kitteh photo bomb!
