The Wrap Up:

I first made the Colleen Cardigan from a Double Brushed Poly and rayon spandex in the colour block regular collar and absolutely loved it, so the next one I used some of my coveted mustard waffle I had been saving from Lush Fabrics Australia. I had zero regrets.

It is such a nice light, oversized, comfy cardi to chuck over the top of tops when the nights start to get a bit chilly or in the cooler months over long sleeve tops. The only thing I wish I had done for both versions of the cardigan I made was add pockets. Bit of a rookie mistake, but I didn’t add them and have regretted it. However, I also think it would have changed the look a little if it was weighed down by say my phone in the pocket, so it could also be a good thing that I didn’t add them as well.

I think on the mustard one I ended up doing the shawl collar which adds a little bit of extra coziness in my opinion as well.

The colour block one is quite good if you have a couple of half metre scraps as well as you can put them together for this fairly simply constructed cardigan.

Give it a go and tag me in your makes so I can see your me mades too!
