Lark Sew-Along: Cardigan Sewing Tutorial
Today we're sewing up the Lark Cardigan. Start by cutting out your pattern. You'll need 2 sleeves, 1 back, and 2 fronts. The assembly instructions are the same as the actual Lark pattern but we'll run through them here as well. Begin by sewing the shoulder seams. Press the seams towards the back of the cardigan. Next insert the sleeves. Press seam allowance lightly towards the sleeves. Sew up your side seams from sleeve hem to body hem. Press the seam allowances towards the back of the cardigan. This is where construction varies from the original sewing instructions. All of the hem allowances around the outside of the cardigan are going to be 3/4" wide. Begin by folding the neckline under 3/4" and press. Stitch the seam allowance in place either with a zig zag stitch, stretch stitch, twin needle or a coverstitch, which we used in this tutorial. Fold the fronts under and stitch in place, then repeat for the hem. Fold up and hem the sleeves and you're all set, super easy! That's that on the cardigan, hope you enjoyed this variation.
