The Ruffled Cardigan

The second to last pattern in the Blank Slate Holiday Collection – the Ruffled Cardigan. This cardigan is made of knit and it’s fully reversible!
I know I am always cold, so I wanted to make sure that since I did a short sleeved holiday dress I had an option to keep the little ones warm. Make this with a dressy knit (I chose a sparkle sweater knit) and it will look perfect with your holiday dress up clothes. Line it with something fun, and you can reverse it for a more casual look.
As with all my Blank Slate patterns, I want you to be able to get a totally different result based on your choices of fabric and embellishment. Alida, of Alida Makes, was one of my awesome pattern testers for this pattern. Go on over  to her blog and see how totally different but equally amazing her cardigan looks.
Remember the giveaways this week! I am giving away a copy of EACH pattern I show this week, AND a grand prize of the ENTIRE Holiday Collection. Since these are PDF patterns, this giveaway is also open to international readers.

This giveaway is now closed, winners were announced November 9.
Don’t forget that from now through Sunday, November 11, you can get 20% off of any of the patterns I carry on my site (so not the Hipster Henley or the Cool Cardigan since they are only on Lil Blue Boo right now), including the Blank Slate Basics Collection and the Blank Slates (for Girls!) collections, and any of the holiday patterns once they launch. And by the way, I will be retiring the collections at the end of this year. The individual patterns will still be for sale, but they will not be sold as a collection in 2013. So if you’ve been waiting to pick up one of the collections, now is the time to do it! Use the code 20OFF when you check out to get your discount.

    I Follow with GFC. I also love this pattern. Most holiday dresses aren’t made for cool weather and this would be perfect!
