(MB-POM) Serger Project of the Month (NOV) Fall Cardigans -Mission Bay Location



Join Candace for the December Serger Project making your favorite Fall Cardigan. Several cardigans can be made entirely on your serger, others need the Cover-Hem machine to finish the hems.  Learn tips and techniques for working with both machines and working with different types of knits.

Fabric Type and Yardage
: Around 2 1/2 or 3yards depending on the hem length and sleeve length.  You can make this cardigan with almost any type of knit fabric such as: Sweater Knits, Hacci, French Terry, or Double Brush Polyester. These fabrics work well for these patterns. If you want a lighter weight fabric you can use ITY, Cotton or Rayon Blends.

Print your pattern at home: Print the US Letter pattern file on your home printer. Read the pattern Tutorial for how to put the pattern pages together and which pages to print.  https://newhorizonsdesigns.com/new-horizons-patterns-101/This file gives you general information on printing PDF patterns and printing optional “layers”. **Make sure your printer to “Actual Size” or 100% (no scaling)

Large Print Shop AO files can be sent to a plotting company to print out on large sheets of paper. upload the AO file to www.pdfplotting.com OR www.patternprintingcompany.com out of Vista, CA to have it printed on large paper.
