My Kinder Cardigan is now available as a PDF pattern, get yours here!!
The Kinder is definitely one of the most popular projects from my book Beginner’s Guide to Sewing With Knitted Fabrics, look at these gorgeous versions that have been shared on social media:
You can see loads more on Instagram using #kindercardigan
You can make the Kinder in three lengths;
- short, which just skims the hip bone
- mid-length, which comes to just below hip (yes, it covers your bum)
- or full length, which is just below knee length and looks great with more fitted styles such as skinny jeans.
There is also a choice of short or long sleeves finished with a cuff and for the mid and full length versions you can add roomy patch pockets. Once you’ve tackled some basic versions, have a go at mixing and matching fabrics with some color-blocked panel details.
I’m so happy to now have the Kinder available as a standalone pattern, it means those of you that don’t enjoy tracing patterns from books, don’t need the whole book, or those of you that are simply just impatient (!) can all start making your own Kinders right now.
You can find the pattern here. Happy sewing.
