    Easy to follow instructions, beautiful illustrations, and the end result is a terrific top! I will need several of these in my fall/winter wardrobe <3

  2. Kimberly Coffin

    I really enjoyed making this pattern! The instructions were so clear and easy to understand. I love the large size range so I can make different sizes for my family. 🙂

  3. Jennifer (verified owner)

    I love this pattern! Easy to follow and easy to adjust to fit you perfectly! Love that you can add lots to your pattern (hoods, collars, pockets!) or do a very simple version!

    I made this in a nice thick sweater knit, and it is such a warm, snuggly cardi for our Canadian fall.
    The shawl collar pops up and covers the back of my neck against the wind.

    I *love* this !

  5. Cassie (verified owner)

    I made this in a ponte and I love it! So comfortable with a tunic, leggings, and boots for the Fall/Winter!

  6. coco

    Just didn’t work for me. I had problems with the drafting and the pattern markings.

    Just bought and sewed in one night! Perfect fit, great for calandra very versatile with the different fabric types you can use!

  8. Jaslyn (verified owner)

    I bought the pattern and immediately made one for myself. Instructions were great and I like the fit! Will be making another soon in my more expensive knit! I can totally see this as a stable in my wardrobe!

    The perfect garment for the fall shoulder season and surprisingly easy to make. Excellent instructions accompany this pattern and in no time at all you have a garment you can be proud of! My first of many.

    Cardigan with a hood? Yes, please! This is a great cardigan and a simple sew. Most importantly, it’s warm!

  11. Alisha (verified owner)

    I’m a fairly inexperienced seamstress, and I expected this to be much more difficult to put together than it was. I was pleasantly surprised! Thanks to clear instructions and pictures, it came together easily. I love the fit! It’s slimming in a lightweight sweater knit and has just the right length.

  12. Mary Norton (verified owner)

    Great pattern, instructions were super easy to follow, I have already made two and am planning a third (for my daughter, she wants one now :))

  13. Trista

    So comfy. Can be worn as round the house or dressed up to wear out.

  14. Debbie (verified owner)

    I love this pattern! Very easy with clear instructions, sizing spot on and comfy to wear, a winner all around!

  15. Abby (verified owner)

    Love the design of this pattern, though I had some issues with the hoodie band. Mine came up about 4 inches short. I suspect that it was my fault though, I probably shortened it wrong.

  16. Vickie Uselton

    I order three patterns and got the pdf one but other two not delivered to me.
