Ahhhh the Circle Cardie! I absolutely adore this pattern from Rebecca Page. I’ve made myself four so far, and have plans for at least another two. I’m a Queenslander, so a cardigan is typically all I’ll need over winter. It’s available in ladies and children’s sizes and a bundle of the two together.
This pattern is effortlessly stylish, and so incredibly comfortable to wear. For years I have been trying (and failing) to find a cardigan pattern that I liked – comfy, snuggly, a nice amount of drape and stylish enough to wear anywhere. The Circle Cardie delivers all of that and much more.
Rebecca Page patterns start at the teeny tiny new born baby size and go all the way up to ladies 5xl (54inch/137cm bust).
Rebecca’s pattern always feature really great instructions! There is so much information included, from choosing the right fabric and getting the fit right though to completing your finished Cardie. We will be doing a tutorial on the construction fairly soon, and you can find our post on fabric options here.
Ok, let’s talk options! Firstly, there is both long and short lengths. I usually make the long, as you can see below. I like the idea of being able to wrap it around my hips when it’s chilly. The pattern comes with three quarter and full length sleeves, along with a sleeveless option, and there is also a choice of hemming, using a band or adding a ruffle to finish the edges of your cardigan.
What options do you think you’ll choose? Let me know!
