A review of True Bias Marlo Sweater
This is my second cardigan I have made using this pattern, and I will make more I am sure. I made a size 10, which is a nice comfortable relaxed fit. I made the short versions, the first one I made to the pattern instructions, but this second one i added 2 inches on to the length which I prefer. I used my Overlocker to do all the stitching, which worked very well. This fabric is a knit jacquard cotton jersey from Fabric godmother, which is lovely and soft. Unfortunately for both cardigans I made I was unable to do machine buttonholes as the fabric was just a bit too thick , so I actually hand stitched the buttonholes which worked ok on a pattern fabric but I wouldn’t hand stitch a plain fabric as you would see the imperfections!,!!! The instructions are very easy to follow, I decided to change the way I finished the neck band due to the thickness of the fabric. The pattern tells you to edgestitch the neck band to catch the folded edge underneath, but I just hand stitched the neckband underneath which works perfectly well. Throughly recommend this pattern.
