What was your inspiration?
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 sutil 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!
What are you most proud of?
The sutil bust darts and the fitting in all sizes!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just be aware to the gauge and have fun! Bettina is a fast knit and a versatile cardi!
