Jenna is a fitted, round neck, button-up cardigan with two length options (hip or waist length), three sleeve options (long, 3/4, or short), and optional shoulder yoke detailing.
The waist-length version is designed to go well over skirts and dresses, coming down over waistbands and then letting skirts flare out unimpeded. A wide hem band harks back to cardigan and jumper styles of the 1940’s and 1950’s.
The hip-length version is great over shift dresses and trousers, and includes a hem band to help it hang well whether worn open or closed.
Variation A has plain shoulders for a classic cardigan style. Variation B gathers gently into curved front shoulder yokes for a subtle 1940’s touch.
Full length and 3/4 length sleeves are finished with cuffs, while short sleeves are finished with a simple hem. Full length straight sleeves come down past the wrist and are designed to be wide enough to sit comfortably over the lower part of your hand.
Mix-and-match length, sleeve, and shoulder options to create up to 12 different styles.
Jenna is in Muse sizing 32 - 48, which correspond to bust sizes 32" - 48".
Stable light-medium weight jersey/knit fabrics, such as merino wool, wool or acrylic blends, cotton knit, cotton blends, or even stretch lace. Make a cozy cardi for winter in a wool blend, or a lightweight one to throw on over summer dresses in a cotton or lace knit!
Fabric requirements are listed for two variations of each shoulder style (version and B) - one that uses the most amount of fabric that style (hip length with long sleeves) and a second for comparison. Except where otherwise stated, all fabric requirements listed are based on the largest size (size 48).
Note that due to the width of the hemband, sizes 42-48 will need fabric that is 55"/140cm wide.
