Welcome to the Grandpa Cardi / Cpt. Mack’s Cardigan Sew Along!
Day One is reserved to purchasing the patterns, printing and cutting the size(s) you need. If you plan on sewing for yourself you can get the Grandpa Cardi here, if you’re sewing for your little one, the Cpt. Mack’s Cardigan can be purchased here and if you’re sewing for both of you (just think of the mommy and me matching outfits!) you can get the bundle.
This Sew Along will take place in the new M4M & P4P Sew Along group so be sure to join the group not only for the exclusive discount code available for the Grandpa Cardi and Cpt. Mack’s Cardigan patterns but also to post your progress this week.
Now that you purchased the pattern(s), print the size needed. In order to do that it is very important that you take your most accurate measurements.
You will need your waist, hips and chest measurements in order to choose the correct cardigan size. P4P has an amazing blog that gives you tip for accurately taking your measurements. You can read all about it here. If your measurements put you in a different size for chest/waist/hips be sure to check out our P4P University blog and grade to achieve the perfect fit.
Check out the day 1 video below and then comment “done” on the Day 1 picture of the Cadigan SAL album in the sew along group. We don’t allow pictures of the pattern pieces so this will count as your day 1 check in.
