Scarf Neck Cardigan by Swoon Patterns

Love this cardigan!  Some interesting styling at the hem and a sweet princess seam for shaping over the bust.  So many of these slouchy comfy cardigans are a bit shapeless but this one is just right.

The back is pretty plain but it works.

The fabric is a lighter weight cotton jersey which I wasn't sure what to do with.  It felt too light weight with not stretch enough for a nice top and ended up sitting in my stash for a while.  I think it works perfectly in this cardigan style.  

The pattern was easy to sew and things fit together well.  The instructions are sparse but should get the job done.  The best part?  It's a free pattern!  Get a copy and get sewing!
