A Great Wardrobe Staple

Another quick and easy pattern from Itch to Stitch, the Aveiro Cardi is going to be a great wardrobe builder. It's packed with options - long, 3/4 or short sleeves, long, regular, short or bolero lengths, two different cuff options, pockets, add closures or leave it open. So many possibilities!! The pattern goes together quickly with the straight forward instructions I've come to expect with any ITS pattern. I liked the Aveiro so much that I've made two already this fall and have plans to make more! You can see more photos and details on my blog of my first version at : and of my second version here :
