Brand new fabulous sewing pattern from Tilly and the Buttons!
Elevate your knitwear with Pearl, a V neck wrap cardigan that’s bang on-trend. Pearl is cropped at the waist and fastens at the side with an adjustable tie. It has dropped shoulders, a relaxed fit across the bust and a deep hem band.
Choose between classic long straight sleeves, short sleeves or statement balloon sleeves with cosy cuffs. Wear Pearl with jeans, a denim skirt or over your favourite dress – it’s the perfect cardigan to tie your look together.
Your choice of fabric really informs the silhouette, so you can have a lot of fun here! If you want to show off the balloon sleeves, a knit with slightly more structure such as French Terry, interlock or jacquard knit will do the job nicely, whereas a drapier fabric will result in a softer look.
Pearl is perfect for medium-weight, drapey knit fabrics with at least 20% stretch. Look out for Hacci knit, sweater knit, jacquard knit, stretch velvet, ponte, interlock, lighter weight French terry.
If you’re thinking of giving Pearl a go then definitely go and check out the awesome fitting advice here on the Tilly and the Buttons website. It covers how to choose the right size, how shorten and lengthen the cardigan, and how to do a bust adjustments. Skills that will serve you well in any future sewing projects.
This is a brilliant pattern, suitable for a confident beginner and comes in UK Sizes 6-24
