    The Chelsea Cardigan is the perfect layering piece for all seasons, fabric will dictate functionality. It’s a great fit, it’s loose but not over sized and with optional pockets you can’t go wrong.

    The Chelsea Cardigan is a lovely style with options to wear with everything. I love the different looks depending on fabric; some look more coat-like. The fit is just right and I will be sewing another during the sew along to try the easy way to sew the collar.

    The pattern was true to measurements and came together beautifully! There are multiple styles/looks that I can achieve with the various options offered in the pattern. I can’t wait to make my next version!
