Light Lime Cardigan!

Yes, it's another cardigan from Simplicity 1961. The fabric is a light lime polyester burnout knit from Fabric Mart. Today, as I was checking out at JoAnn's, I looked back and saw a lady in the checkout line wearing the same color burnout shirt with a matching tank top.

Today, I purchased the Threads magazine for July which included a burnout cardigan with an article by Connie Crawford about "Lightweight Knits."

I've decided to wear this cardigan with a taupe tank and taupe pants. I like the way the taupe had a barely-there look. Although I haven't checked, I'm pretty sure there is a lime tank packed away in one of my drawers.

*There is one thing that I forgot to mention about the top; I decided to enlarge the sleeves because it fit like a sweater or should I say, due to my arm size, it fits a little closer than I perfer.

A ballpoint needle was used. You can use a stretch needle.


  1. that is beautiful Dot! Hancoks has a huge fabric sale going on & boy did I do some damage lol!Heads up on patterns, they're on sale again!

    1. Thanks a million. JoAnn's had Simplicity 5 for $5 and I chose 5. Of course, I didn't need them with so many in my stash that hasn't been cut.

  2. I'm in love with lime green lately. LOVE this cardi!

  3. Darci, thanks for the compliment. It's one of my favorites.

  4. Ooh, I missed this post (we went away for the weekend) - what a lovely fresh colour, gorgeous style and drape. It will look lovely over a tank top.

  5. I'm glad that you like it. I hope you really enjoyed your weekend.

  6. I love this, it can be worn with tons of things, very nice!
