Sophie is a cute, sporty cardigan, perfect for wearing with skirts, dresses or trousers. A fitted style, which curves gently in at the waist and flares out again over your hips. Raglan sleeves add a casual touch and also give great opportunities for mixing fabric. The cardigan sits at the high hip, making Sophie work just as well with trousers as with dresses.
Sophie has three different neckline options - a classic round neck, a v neck, and a collar to give a touch of 1940's landgirl styling. There are two pocket options to play with as well - you can add patch pockets or side seam pockets with semi-circular openings. Plus, for the v neck and collar variations, you can choose between zip-up or button-up fronts. Lots of options for mixing and matching to make Sophie in your own style!
The long sleeves have a classic narrow fit, and end with a cuff at the wrist for a neat and easy finish. The button bands are interfaced to provide stability and make it easy to sew button holes. Zip front versions have a narrow front facing on the inside, giving a clean and tidy finish whether the cardi is worn open or done up.
Sophie is in Muse sizing 30 - 48 B-cup, which correspond to bust sizes 30" - 48".
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 in spring or summer in a cotton or lace knit! For the zip front variation, use a medium weight fabric to ensure the zip has enough support. For the round neck variation, choose a softer fabric with good drape so the wide neck band sits close to your body.
The fit of the Sophie pattern will change depending on the fabric you use. A more stable knit will give a closer fit. A looser knit will give a looser fit. Chose your fabric based on the fit you'd like to have.
