THE VIENA CARDIGAN,
The Vienna is a cardigan zero waste (well, minimum waste), easy to make and it’ll become your favorite basic, at least that happened to me :)
The inspiration for this cardigan comes from the city of art, from a painting I saw at the MUMOK museum in Vienna and it has been hanging around my head for months, I took the idea and transformed it into a cardigan. As you can see in the pic, it could be made without sleeves for the summer time, I will certainly try it in a few months :)
For this cardigan you’ll need between 1 to 1.5 meters of knitted fabric of 1.5 meters wide.
Use a fabric with some interesting texture or color and take into account that the back side of the fabric will also be visible in the final piece.
For the first version I made (the red one) I used a thin fabric and only 1 meter. For the second version (the gray one) I decided to try a slightly thicker material and I used 1.2 meters. Love them both.
I did’t make any pattern for this cardigan, it is so simple that it is enough to mark it directly on the fabric using our own measurements.
