Kwik Sew Pattern 3916 – Shawl Cardigan and Vest
This Kwik Sew pattern is ideal for knit fabrics. This is a popular easy pattern which we have made up successfully many times.
Cardigan and vest have extended shoulders and wide band on front and neck which folds back forming collar. View A Vest has armholes finished with bindings and patch pockets. View B Cardigan has pockets in side seams and full length sleeves that fold-up forming cuffs.
Kwik Sew says this pattern is designed for firm (low) stretch knits. You can also use the pattern with medium and even high stretch knits – all it means is that you may need to try on the garment before hemming, and run it in if it is a bit loose. We do this all the time – this sort of flexibility is one of the attractions of sewing with knit fabrics.
Kwik Sew patterns have always been very easy to use, as Kwik Sew patterns have a diagram at every step.
