The Saunio Cardigan is a super cool, oversized, slouchy cardigan. Much of the success in sewing it is in fabric choice. And, where as the pattern designer recommends fabrics like cable knit and or boiled wool, those are not the only options.
Michelle with Style Maker Fabrics sent me some swatches of fabrics that she recommends for the Saunio cardigan. Watch the video to see how they drape, the weight, and general look of these awesome fabric choices!
