Description

This has been on my To-Do List for a while! 

I wanted a quick easy win of a sewing project.  I think this will be the thing.  Its supposed to be a 1 Hour Cardigan.  We'll see how long it takes me!  

McCall's M5241


Well it took me more than 1 hour because I am easily distracted.  It turned out ok.  I made the Medium but its pretty tight in the sleeves and across the back, even for a knit.  I am not a fan of how the hem turned out either. 

I made it out of some wonderfully thing buttery knit though so its got good drape.  Not sure if I'll cannibalize the fabric for something else or just put it in the closet and sadface that it didn't turn out as great as I'd hoped.  Really a Large would have been perfect.  Curse my sturdy mid-western frame!

True

I have not sewn a piece of clothing in years...but will love to hear how this comes out and how hard it is as I love it! And I have a few that I have purchased along these lines but might consider trying to make one...what type of fabric does it call for?

I think I have this pattern (and the yardage in a green microfiber) but I don't remember the one-hour claim! I may have to follow your initiative once I clear a few other projects off my plate

Chandra I got distracted so its gonna be more than an hour, but ones you get it cut out it seems to work up remarkably quick!

I have this pattern, but have not made it yet. I look forward to seeing the finished photo (on a human model would be great to see). Which view did you make?
Now would be a good time to make this since the weather is getting cooler.

Azjune I made view B which seems to be a good length. However I really should have made the L not a M. I need the room across my back and in the arms. Live and learn. I probably won't wear it.
