McCall's 7476


McCall's 7476 in Style Maker Fabrics' sweater knit



After working on three Archer shirts, I decided it was time for some knit projects.  First up
 McCall's 7476 from Style Maker Fabric's Sweater knit

This sweater knit is a great fabric, soft and warm and beautiful colors.  After making this top in the fall from Style Maker Fabrics, I decided I need more of this pumpkin-rust fabric in my closet.

This pattern is very quick to sew, in fact, it is a "Learn to Sew for Fun" pattern.  One thing about this pattern, you get several options.  Collar options, pocket options, sleeve options and length options.  I went with View C length and View B facing option.

One thing to note is the drop shoulders on this sweater.   Some people like it and some don't, so take a look at the line drawing.

I did had a piece of interfacing at the shoulder seams, helped to prevent stretching/drooping.  This sweater went together so quickly and I had a beautiful cardigan  in no time.  


Hubby wanted to be part of the photo shoot as he stopped in the road and said "Hey, you want my blue work truck in the photos, don't you?"  Sure, so here he is making an appearance!  I think my boots are the only thing in focus.

Now to look for more sweater knits so I can make more of these cardigans.  This is a style I love to wear and now I have a great pattern, I can have a closet full.
