Cocoon Cardigan by Patterns for Pirates

It’s release day!  It’s release day!  This cardigan was one of the longest teases we’ve ever done with Patterns for Pirates and it’s fun to finally be releasing it.  Ready to see what I made?  (I will link all of the fabrics and patterns at the bottom of the post, in case you’re wanting to know about them.)

I love it so much I couldn’t wait to take picture and share.
So here she is: my new fall/winter jacket!  Woot!
