Bettina Cardigan

cardi 4

My main inspiration for Bettina Cardigan was to put to work what I have learned from fitting classes at Craftsy.com and at knitting events about a great fitting. I really hope that people feel beautiful and comfortable knitting and wearing it! My second inspiration was to create something that I would really love to wear anytime that has a girlie twist!

 

Bettina Cardigan is an easy going piece with a fit that flatters the body. The stitch motif creates a cute texture that highlights the body curves enhanced by bust darts.

You can wear the little cardi with a camisole dress for a feminine look but it also looks great with your favorite jeans and t-shirt!

I had a great time working in this project. Once because I was working on a piece that I really love to wear and secondly because I had the help from special friends! Marcia Hilleshein, Michele Lemos and Graça Lins as test knitters, Grace Burns who made the beautiful schematics and Maria Letícia Cinto who translated to portuguese and did some tech editing!

And the “cherry on top” was the photo shooting with my gorgeous daughter at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, Rio de Janeiro under a 104F! We laughed a lot trying to deal with the weather X boots and woolly garments!
