    Love this pattern,instructions are easy to follow and cardi came out great


    This is in my queue to make. It will be perfect for our Toronto autumn weather. I love the puff sleeve and ruffle options. Another T&T pattern!

    What a flattering fit!!

    The flared shaping and fit of this cardi is so flattering!! The instructions are excellent - they are easy to follow, and I learn a new technique from every Pattern Emporium pattern! I’ve made 2 Reconnects and have more on the drawing board!

    Reconnect Cardi

    I absolutely love the reconnect cardi. I’ve made 1 and there are several in the pipeline. The instructions are, as always with PE patterns, clear and easy to follow. I just don’t know how I managed before I discovered Pattern Emporium. I now have a wardrobe of clothes that I love to wear and everything fits perfectly.

    A great piece!

    A fabulous cardi with so many options. It’s great for all sizes and has plenty of options for different sleeves. A nice little cover up for summer and yet perfect for a cozy winter cardi and all seasons in between.
