Suggested Fabric:  Good quality knit fabric including polyester, nylon, rayon, cotton, wool blends.

 

Cardi – 2 yds of 60” wide fabric.  Mid weight ponte, double knit, sweater knit, french terry, sweatshirt fleece, novelties.  The single layer front” cascades “ to show the wrong side of the fabric.

Blazer – 2 ½ yds of 60” wide fabric (add ¼ yd for XL or narrower fabric).  Perfect for ponte, but many midweight knit fabrics (listed for the cardi) will work well.

Suggested Fabric:  good quality knit fabric including polyester, nylon, rayon, cotton, wool blends.

 

SMART TIPS:

  • To avoid pilling, choose a ponte knit with nylon/rayon/lycra as well as ponte with wool blends or poly/spandex

  • Stretch the fabric to make sure it snaps back to the original length. If it doesn’t, don’t use it!  Check out Pamela’s Stretch Ruler.

  • Knit fabrics, especially ponte or double knit can shrink several inches per yard.  Be sure to pre-wash/dry the fabric.

Sewing Machines:

  • Sewing Machine (both garments can be made entirely on a sewing machine. 

However….

  • A serger is not mandatory, but certainly will make a difference in the finish quality of your garments.  You will still need a sewing machine as well.  Have the serger threaded for a 4-thread serge with thread that matches/blends with the fabric you choose for the Cascade Cardi.
