Cuddly as a Cloud Cardigan Updated

We’ve just updated our Cuddly as a Cloud Cardigan by Sentry Box Designs!  This is one of our favourite most popular cardigans.  Our update is a more Budget Friendly version.  As beautiful as the original is in buttery soft merino we thought an affordable alternative could be just as wonderful!

I received this gorgeous powdered blue from Blubrint to remake this cardigan in Sprightly Yarns Acrylic Super Bulky

Little MJ needed one in pink so I whipped one up for her too.  These colours are perfect and bright for Spring.  If you’re looking for a cozy mommy and me set for Easter or Mother’s Day these Cardi’s are just the thing!

If you’re new to making garments this is a great beginner design.  It’s worked from the side across in simple stitches with no shaping.  Body, sleeves and collar are worked in separate pieces then seamed together. It works up quick and comes in Child size 2/4 up to Adult 2/3XL.

The fit is oversized and cozy.  The wide collar is right on trend and I love the added pockets.
