Lisbon Cardigan from itch to stitch

Ok, I already LOVE itch to stitch due to the perfect stretch jeans pattern, Liana. Today I made the Lisbon cardigan and was not disappointed; it came together easily and with beautiful finishing. I was not sure whether I would add buttons, but now I think that I will, because the shape is very flattering when I pin the fronts together (and it is warmer).

Measurements put me in size 4 bust, size 2 waist and size 10 hip, and after consulting the itch-to-stitch facebook group I decided to cut a size 4 bust, size 4 waist and grading to a size 8 hip. The curve looks a bit dramatic on the paper pattern pieces, but it turned out beautifully. I love that Kennis include the finished garments measurements, it makes it so much easier to decide which size to use. Besides that I added 2 cm to the sleeve length.

The fabric is a heavy weight cotton jersey.

I read several reviews online, and people seemed to have trouble with the neck lining as it is a bit tight; I decided to put a LOT of needles in it, and it worked, I was easy to sew and came out very nice.

I really need work cardigans, so will be making one in black as well.

Once again, I think this is an amazing pattern from ITS! Very easy to make, great instructions and beautiful result. I am looking forward to try other ITS patterns!
