Pattern Description:

My main inspiration for Bettina Cardigan was to put to work what I have learned from fitting classes here at Craftsy and at knitting events about a great fitting. I really hope that people feel beautiful and confortable 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 subtle 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'm sorry about my clumsy english! It's my attempt to communicate with knitters from all over the world!

I?ve started to knit in 2007 and it was a life changer! Since I have learned how to knit & purl, I have never stopped.

Just love to create accessories and garments and I?m always researching and studying about yarns and the perfect fit!
I hope that you enjoy my designs!
