I was lucky to be asked to test the Jenna cardigan by Muse. I used from random stash knit in cream. I made the waist length, long sleeve option with front yoke. I loved all the options given and went with the one I thought I would wear the most – as it can go over all my pretty dresses.
The sleeves are quite long and in the larger sizes can be quite wide. Once I had finished testing I took mine in from the elbow to the wrist in a wedge to give a slimmer look I prefer. I also unintentionally shortened them by adding my cuffs on inside a out and needing to cut them off – I wasn’t going to unpick all that overlocking.
The yoke was easy to put together – I gathered it on my normal sewing maching but them sewing the remaining of the cardi on the overlocker.
The buttons were from a christmas swap from Juliet. I love how they are big and bold on a simple little cream cardi.
This cardi helped me get over my fear of buttonholes and they all turned out great. I will be making another Jenna Cardi in the future – I just need to do the other twenty-something projects in the queue.
