I have a cotton-cashmere sweater that’s perfect for the cold spells in Florida, which run between 60 – 70 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s soft and warm without being oppressively hot. However, I don’t like it as a sweater because it’s too boxy.
I thought that this would work as an open cardigan because it would give me more flexibility. I can belt it, leave it open, or clip it with a sweater clip.
I needed something for bias tape, and I found some grosgrain ribbon that I had left over from another project.
I measured out some ribbon for the bias tape.
To easily find the middle of the sweater, I folded it long ways and cut the front of the sweater for the opening.
I then finished the seam of the opening with the ribbon as the bias tape.
Voila! A cardigan sweater!
