- Your fabric needs to be at least 40% stretch to fit as designed.
- The stretch recovery is just as important as the stretch percentage. Good recovery will ensure your cardie maintains its fit and shape longer without becoming baggy.
- Both 4-way and 2-way stretch fabric will work well. A fabric with 4-way stretch will give more drape than a 2-way stretch. It will also swing and swish more along the 'waterfall' style front edge.
- Light to medium weight stretch fabrics such as jersey, silk satin with elastine, and silk jersey with elastine will give a lovely drape and swing.
- Warmer and heavier fabrics such as sweater knits, hacci knits, stretch wool, and interlock will give a snugger, cozy look with less drape.
- The other property to consider is how open the weave is. A tight weave such as jersey will give a more solid look than a more open weave such as a stretch wool or some sweater knits which can look more like a knitted garment.
- Thread to match
- Optional clear elastic (may be used to stabilize some fabrics, especially in the shoulder seams)
- Sewing machine
- Pins or clips
- Serger/Overlocker is optional but not required

Nice wearable easy sew!

The Circle Cardi can be made in any fabric that you would like for an accent to your outfit. It can be made in warm or lightweight fabric. You can choose from the short or long version plus add a band around the edge or even a ruffle. It is a quick and satisfying sew.
Irene Grimes –
I really like this pattern – I have now sewn several of these. The pattern is beginner friendly and can be sewn up in one afternoon even by novice sewists! And as always, the instructions are clear and there are plenty of illustrations to explain things even more.
Shona Marie Thea Adelaide –
I love the new curvy patterns. This fit me perfectly without having to make adjustments. I made the short version with ruffle hem and it is longer than I expected but I love the length, it’s perfect. I can see me making a number of these.
Jenny Gomez –
It was a great sew. You have to slow down and really read the instructions
Eileen Pepel –
I really like this simple easy to sew, easy to wear cardigan. I made a lightweight knit, but am going to do a fuzzy sweater knit for fall.
Alice Meyers –
The curvy cardi is a quick and simple sew. The instructions were spelled out very nicely. I will definitely make more as I would like to try the band finish next.
