How to DIY A Fluffy Cardigan
Step 1 I really, really love this inspiration photo. This is the kind of outfit I could easily wear every day of the week (weather permitting of course :). The sweater is the Emile Cardigan from Anthropologie. I love big, drapey sweaters and often wear one instead of a coat.
Step 2 The Cool Winter Cardigan pattern from Pickles is a really close match to our inspiration sweater. And the medium size of the pattern is free. (yay!) This cardigan is a classic shape with a long body and sleeves and buttons starting at the mid torso. If you knit and you've never had a look at the Pickles, you should check it out asap. They have a ton of beautiful patterns that are usually free.
Step 3 The fluffiness of the sweater is created by the yarn. Rowan Kidsilk Haze is a mohair blend that will knit up into a soft, lovely, fluffy cardi. I have actually used this yarn twice before and can vouch that it is a very soft, lightweight yarn.
