Worn with leggings and boots or with skinny jeans, a wrap cardigan provides a terrific casual look. However, it is best to avoid wearing the wrap cardigan with a short skirt. Wrap cardigans tend to be fitted, providing a drape effect.
You can wear it with jeans or pants to lengthen your silhouette and flatter your figure. Wrap cardigans are an excellent choice for the plus size woman as well as thin women.
Our company offers a full line of tunic style cardigans that resemble traditional cardigans, but are longer and often button from the front, or have no buttons at all. These cardigans offer a slenderizing affect, and often end at knee length or are even longer.
Another great alternative is the zipped cardigan. We carry an extensive line of zippered cardigans, which are often accompanied by front pockets. This type of cardigan can serve as a great substitute for a jacket, if you wish to change your look around and try something new. We also offer an extensive collection of long cardigans, that are quite similar to open cardigans.
Oftentimes, long cardigans have the length sufficient to reach the wearer's knees. They frequently come with zippers or large buttons in front. The buttons can add nice embellishments and increase the value of one's dressy look. Long cardigans look fantastic on women who are lean or skinny, but they add particularly slenderizing components to the wardrobe of the heavier woman as well. The cropped or bolero cardigan tends be made of lightweight and lacy fabrics.
They go perfectly with long dresses with printed fabrics, and even with nightgowns. Cropped cardigans normally should not be worn with long tops.
The contrast when it comes to lengths, tends not to flatter, creating an odd proportion and shape on the body. Bolero cardigans often have a buttoned or hooked fronts. They look fantastic with fit and flare dresses, and with high-waisted skirts. Remember that the hem of the cardigan shouldn't go past the waistband of your dress or skirt.
Another option exists in our beautiful belted cardigans. If you long for your favorite summer dress during the cold months of winter, a belted cardigan may be the perfect answer for you. These cardigans usually feature open fronts and have matching belts. I took some pictures of it this morning and it I swear I did nothing to make it look better - just chucked it on a hanger. It looks this good after two years of solid wear. I treat it mean. There is not a pill on it. Check out those underarms.
Even with her iphone photos you can see the semi solid nature of Old Maiden Aunt's colourways. In contrast I have recently used another Alpaca Silk yarn blend that has a similar makeup and it was super splitty and is now pilling after a few weeks of wear. I have an ongoing love affair with Rowan Felted Tweed.
I realise it isn't the coolest yarn. BUT there is nothing like this yarn on the market. There is a lot to love! It is a beautiful light DK weight yarn that knits up between stitches per 10cm. Unlike most yarns that achieve this stitch gauge it has super long yardage - m. And that isn't a typo!! Which makes it super economical. This stuff goes on and on. So for the cardigan in the picture below I only used 6.
Crazy cheap for a beautiful sweater. Let me tell you about the yarn's magic. It is a blended yarn and is not spun in the same way that more common yarns are spun. And it means that the resulting knitted fabric looks more like a piece of fabric rather than knitting kinda. The yarn looks flat rather than round. It is so pretty. Plus has the added bonus of making unevenness in tension look less uneven.
Felted Tweed comes in a range of the most stunning tweedy colours that all go together beautifully. Which is great for colourwork but also for making scrap sweaters for kids.
All three of the sweaters below were made out of scraps and single balls I had. Felted Tweed doesn't feel the softest on the ball but blooms beautifully with it's first wash.
My kids call them their cosy sweaters. And it due to the lightness of it it is a lovely yarn for kid cardigans. I find mine get hot in anything much thicker than this but it still knits up quickly.
It does have a couple of small downsides which I don't care about at all because it is so fabulous and I know them so work around them. Over time it stretches and needs to be washed and resized. It does pop back into shape but it lacks the elasticity that normal wool has. You can't yank on it like a more traditionally plied yarn. Which can make sewing up a bugger of a thing to do. It has a cousin in Felted Tweed Aran which is a magnificent yarn which has 16 stitches per 10cm and is super cosy.
However, it has only OK yardage in comparison and the colour palate isn't that special. I'm hoping it gets better with time as I fancy a cosy winter sweater out of it one of these days. I was going to use it for Cinnamon Girl but I couldn't find a colour that worked for me and my current wardrobe.
