Michael Kors Boxy Cardigan

This pattern is from the Spring/Summer 2007 Vogue Knitting. I decided on this project after seeing Elann's version using their linen yarn Linus. I have seen a lot of slouchy vests both in woven fabric and knits, and I thought this would be a fun piece to play with layering.

This is Elann's version with Linus

I used a lot less yarn that Elann recommended, but maybe because I went up in needle size. I think my cardigan fabric looks less dense than theirs. I wasn't too sure about this one once it was finished but I like it, especially with the belt.

The directions are not the best and the pieces are oddly shaped,. I know I had to modify the front pieces because their decreases were not right. All in all, this is not a difficult project and produces a trendy garment.


  1. Very "in style" top. Color looks great on you.

  2. Ganaste el sorteo por la revista italiana ;o) Por favor dame tus direcciones por email(lesenviesdeberry[at]gmail[.]com) te la mandaré la semana próxima cuando volveré de Copenhague.

    Este tejido es bonito!!!

  3. Lisette. I had to do a double take. I have this Michael Kors sweater ins a pumpkin orange cotton knit! I bought it from Filene's for like $50 last year and it was originally over $100. Fantastic job!

  4. I love it!! It looks awesome on you!!

  5. That looks fantastic with the belt! I love the shape of the sleeves.

  6. I love it, it's beautiful and you look terrific in it!


I love hearing from you!
