Tutorial Tuesday :: DIY Maxi Cardigan from The Sewing Rabbit

Maxi length cardigans have become increasingly popular, and this DIY Maxi Cardigan from Jessica Abbott of The Sewing Rabbit is sure to become a Fall wardrobe staple. Pairing perfectly with many different outfits from fun dresses to your favorite t-shirt and jeans, this stylish cardigan is perfect for both dressing up and down. Click here to learn how to make your very own cardigan (or 10 of them) and happy sewing!

Jessica takes you every step of the way in creating your custom pattern with the help of an existing loose fitting tee from your wardrobe.  Her simple illustrations pair perfectly with coordinating step-by-step written instructions that are very easy to follow.
For a fun lightweight cardigan similar to Jessica's, I suggest starting your fabric search with Cotton Jersey and Hacci Sweater Knits. A few of my picks from the store:
