Happy Monday, crafters!
I’m very excited to announce a new project that will be coming soon to the blog: the Nerdy Cardi!
The Nerdy Cardi will be a one-size-fits-most sleeveless cardigan (vest?) type garment. I will be providing a full pattern with photos and measurements, as well as instructions on how to tailor the pattern to make your cardi just the right size for you. Heads up: it might take a bit of trial and error to get the sizing right!
This is the first cardigan-type item I have ever designed, so I am super excited about it! My favorite part about this entire project? It’s very customizable, so you can use lots of designs with the pattern–including some of our C2C designs!
The first design shared will be Harry Potter-themed (hence the Nerdy Cardi’s name), but you will be able to choose from a selection of designs in the near future – or make your own!
I am using Lion Brand 24/7 cotton yarn, and I have to say that I am absolutely loving it. This is my first time using any cotton yarn, and it is amazing! This yarn is very easy to work with and is (so far, anyway) creating a really nice drape for the garment. I think I’m in love!
Here’s a sneak peek at what I’ve got so far…isn’t that yarn just gorgeous?
I hope to have the Nerdy Cardi completed by the end of this week, and my plan is to hopefully put together the pattern over the weekend so that it will be going to testing soon after that.
Do you have some designs you want to have featured? Comment on this post and let me know! I’ll do my best to get some designs worked up so that you have a variety to choose from.
Have a crafty day! And, if you’re watching the solar eclipse today, remember to keep your pets, kiddos and yourself safe!
