The Fraser Cardigan is a cute, open front cardigan in the cocoon style that will envelop your shape in a comforting way. Choose from the hooded or plain views. And no cardigan would be complete without pockets! 

The Fraser Cardigan comes with a full bust option as well as a cuffed sleeve option. This is a quick and satisfying sew with a contoured collar band that won’t flop or contort the shape of the cardigan. It’s a great layering piece for the cooler temperatures.

    I love this pattern, I’ve already made 3! Fairly easy for a beginner, just have to pay attention when assembling the band. I love the hood and pockets. A great cozy basic for over everything!

  2. Casey (verified owner)

    Great staple for my teaching wardrobe! I’ve made a few Fraser’s with French terry and love the results. Great pockets for holding all the kids’ “treasures” ????

  3. Katie (verified owner)

    I love the Fraser Cardigan pattern. So much that I have already made 3. It is fairly easy, the only tricky part I found was the band especially with the hood option. When I just slowed down and laid it out it was much clearer. I highly recommend this pattern. A great cozy basic for over everything!

    I have made a few of these! It’s my go to sweater pattern!

    Made this for my mom’s birthday when she was coming into town. Decided to make it and 2 hours later it was done. I guessed at her size and made it in CL and it was a PERFECT fit. Such a fast and beautiful sew. My mom wore it every day she was visiting. Pieces fit together beautifully and clear instructions on how to construct. Can’t wait to make one for me!

    The Fraser cardigan is a great pattern. The only confusion I had was with the back neck band piece on the plain version, I thought I had attached it upside down but it was correct after all. I made it in a lightly brushed cotton spandex as a light coverup as we live in a hot tropical climate and don’t get much of a winter.

    I have made this pattern twice and will make it many more times! It is very flattering and makes a terrific cardigan. I did one in a black waffle knit and the other in a patterned knit. I did shorten it by an inch and I am glad I did, because I am now 5’4″.

    I made this for my sister as a gift. Before it was finished, she asked for another! She uses it as a travel garment that goes with everything.

  9. Erin (verified owner)

    This is my favorite cardigan pattern. The pockets are huge and the fit is perfect.

  10. vh_scott (verified owner)

    My favourite cardigan! Fun to put together, and so flattering once it’s done. And sizeable pockets as a cherry on top!

  11. mlgatward (verified owner)

    this is a quick pattern to sew. I have had a number of compliments when wearing my Fraser cardigan.

  12. vh_scott (verified owner)

    My favourite cardigan pattern from any company. The rounded style is flattering, and the pockets are nice and roomy. It’s also a fun make!

  13. Erin (verified owner)

    The Fraser Cardigan is the perfect cardigan pattern. It’s fast and easy but looks incredible and has large pockets.

  14. violentlyserene (verified owner)

    It’s fussy to get everything cut out but this is my favorite cardigan pattern ever. It fits so well and the pockets are roomy and comfortable to use.

  15. Christine (verified owner)

    The Fraser Cardigan is one I return to over and over. The curved band at the bottom makes this pattern perfect. It hugs the cardigan for a perfect hem band finish. The optional hood makes this cardigan customizable for your style.
    I’ve added a large bottom to the band for an easy new look.
