Love this cardi pattern!!!!

I'm obsessed with my new My Embrace Cardi. The cardigan itself is so stylish and comfy, I love throwing it over pretty much any outfit. The pattern itself is top notch. The amount of helpful info, adjustment tips and variations is incredible. Honestly, I can't say enough how the instructions booklet!

Hey Julie! Thanks for the amazing review! Your My Embrace Cardi is gorgeous – no wonder you're obsessed! We're so happy you found the pattern and instructions helpful. Enjoy styling your cardi with all your outfits!

Lovely cover up

Very pleased with my first attempt. Now ready for the next one which will be for Perth Frocktails.

So Cosy and Snug!

This was the first Pattern Emporium pattern I have made and I am so happy with the results. I am a confident beginner when it comes to sewing and this was such a satisfying and quick make! I love it! There are a few things I would potentially do differently next time such as stay stitching the shoulder seams as I did have some issue with fabric stretching and making one arm and inch longer before the sleeve was added, but that was more my fault than the pattern.

I finished it last night and have been wearing it non-stop all day! I made it in a nice warm, knit fabric and can see myself making many more of these. Love the versatility of using different knit fabrics, making this suitable for all seasons. I put the whole garment together on my overlocker and finished with a twin needle on my sewing machine.

So so pleased with the way this pattern came together and also love the extra bits of advice given in the pattern instructions when it comes to troubleshooting - though thankfully I never ran into any issues!

After this make, I am definitely inspired to make more PE patterns as this one ticks all the boxes: easy to understand and follow pattern, quick make, so comfy, stylish and enjoyable to sew!
