There are quite a few cardigan sewing patterns out there these days, but not many patterns for sewing sweater sets and classic crew neck cardigans, that are not v-neck. So I figured I should do a round-up post with with the round neck cardigan sewing patterns that I have found.
I love the classic look of this cardigan and it offers a great template for many variations such as contrasting ribbing and lace front pieces.
This sweater set looks really interesting as it has darts and is drafted to fit various bust sizes. One problem when sewing with knits is getting the fabric to fit well around the bust area and using darts would improve this issue a lot.
I really like this cardigan and the yoked version is super cute. Bonus points for having some width around the hips as well. I don’t like cardigans that sits tight around that area. (Thank you Debbie and Caitlyn for pointing me to this pattern)
This out-of-print Kwik Sew cardigan set looks really promising too if you are looking for a sweater set or just a simple round neck cardigan sewing pattern. I used to sew a lot of Kwik Sew knit patterns in the past, but I have felt somewhat underwhelmed by the offerings during several years now. Does anyone have any info on why they have scaled back on their knits and activewear patterns and are much less on-trend?
If you already have a knit top pattern that you really like and want to use that as a guide for drafting your own crew neck cardigan pattern you can use my tutorial.
Do you have any more classic round neck cardigan sewing patterns? Tell me in the comment section and I’ll add them to my list!
