A Review of the Longley Cardigan Pattern

Looking for that perfect in-between-seasons project?  My Longley cardigan pattern might just be for you and Fiona of Diary of a Chainstitcher blog has just made a gorgeous version which she’s blogged about along with a review of the pattern.

Spoiler: I think she loved it! Here are some of the lovely things Fiona says about the pattern.

“When the construction is as well thought out as this getting professional looking results is very satisfying.”

“The finishing of the Longley is a real selling point for me and I highly recommend it as a cracking pattern to try if you are looking for a similar style.”

Read her full review here. You can also read more reviews of the Longley pattern here and get your copy of the pattern here.

Here’s a bit of inspiration to whet your appetite; there have been some glowing reviews of the pattern in the last few weeks from bloggers, links in this post.

I particularly love Anne of Compulsive Seamstress‘s final sentence in her review of the pattern:

“So if you’re thinking of a drapey cardi that you can throw on over – or under, anything, this one is great!  Really quick to make, easy to put together and looks pretty darned good to boot!” 

There you go, her words not mine from the woman who having made one for herself and one for her daughter, is currently planning Longley cardi number 3…..

You can get the PDF pattern for just £9 here.

As well as the tiled pattern sized to fit on US letter and A4 paper I’ve included a full size copy shop version (sized to fit on UK and US large format professional printers) for those of you that aren’t fans of scissors and sellotape!!
