Style Arc Simone Cardigan


I got this pattern as a freebie back in April I think. I was attracted by the drape pockets. I’ve wanted a longer length cardigan for a while but don’t like the waterfall front ones. The pockets are formed by darts in the front, and Style Arc give a helpful diagram to show how to do it.

I used some lightweight cotton jersey with a birdy print. The band is supposed to be cut with the stretch ,but as this jersey was pretty stretchy I cut it lengthways. With a little judicious fudging I managed to line up the birds! I didn’t put any buttons on this one, it’s fine as it is.


I like this cardigan and will probably make some more, definitely in a wool for winter as you can never have enough cardigans in the UK.

    Thanks for the review. Your cardigan is lovely. What fun fabric! I have this almost made up. I just need to hem it in the morning. Do your side seams hang straight, or does the pocket pull it kinda wonky? Thanks!
