Farfar Cardigan and a new model!

You can imagine my excitement when my 18 year old agreed that I could sew him something and post it on the blog!!  So let me introduce you to my very handsome young man!

I made him the Farfar Cardigan the newest pattern by Wardrobe by me.  Yet another win from Christina and a great addition to the mens wear collection!  Don’t mind the spots you see on his cardigan, it was pouring outside when we took photos and if we would wait for a day where it is not raining we would be waiting a long time.

The pattern lives up to Wardrobe by me standards being spot on and with great instructions.  I made him size medium and the fit is great.  I used the simple placket version, you can also do a shawl collar.  I skipped the pockets as he likes side pockets better than patch pockets and he wanted more of a sporty look.

The fabric I used is french terry I bought from Stoffdronning.  It is recommended to use medium weight knit fabric or fabric with some hand to it.

The pattern is on sale for one more week for $9.00 so grab your copy now and make your man a great cardigan, an idea for a Christmas present maybe.

I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment! XOXO Dagbjört

  1. Very nice! Your bands (front, bottom, and sleeve) are neat and smooth. What’s your secret? (And, your new model is very handsome… But you knew that!)
