  2. Anthracite: a deep darker grey

  3. Dark Jeans Blue: a lovely denim colour

  4. Teal: a rich blue/green

  5. Silver Grey: a subtle light grey

The Sabel Boyfriend Knit Cardi is perfect for wrapping up in warm layers for winter.

It features oversized styling with patch pockets, a dropped shoulder and slim sleeves.

It is a boxy cut pattern that only has four pieces! Assembly is quick and easy, but not for beginning sewers as Style Arc patterns do not come with illustrations guide your sewing.

I had extra knit fabric with my order so that I could make a skirt to match. I used the free Elemental Skirt Pattern from Sew House Seven. This is fast becoming my go-to quick sew, pull on skirt. I made my cable knit knee length to utilize all of my left over fabric. You really only need 1/2 meter extra if you cut out your cardi carefully, the fabric is 150cm wide so it affords lots of room to lay out your pattern pieces.

The entire outfit together is definitely all about wearing #secretpyjamas. Throw on a pair of fun boots and a hat and you are winter fashion ready. You can see a longer version of my Elemental Skirt here. It really is a versatile, easy to sew, easy to style skirt that you will want to customize than make over and over.

I love my Sabel Boyfriend Cardigan and so appreciate begin able to sew this wonderful kit as a Minerva Brand Ambassador. You can choose from so many fun chunky knits and vary the length of the cardigan to create your own wardrobe of oversized layers.

After all…. There is Sew Much To Design,

Happy Boyfriend Cardi Sewing,
