I am making the blue and white striped cardigan in this photo.  In the last blog post that I made I indicated that is was to be a red cardigan.

Here is the front and back pieces laid out and pinned, ready to cut.  I know, it is not red.  I had enough of the red stretch knit fabric for the cardigan …… until I washed it.  That fabric really shrunk a lot.  Therefore I will go with the green.

This is just another angle of the front and back pieces that have been pinned down and are ready to cut.

In this photo I am showing the interfacing that I am heat setting to the piece.  I will only use the adhesive/heat set interfacing because it is easier to me.  This interfacing is not too stiff so it shouldn’t cause distortion when I finish the cardigan.

I will make another blog posting as I go through making this cardigan.  I look forward to it.
