Recently I was introduced to Petite Stitchery & Co. when I participated in the Lulu dolman blog tour, and I was immediately hooked on their patterns! When the opportunity to test a new Petite Stitchery pattern came up, I jumped at the chance. The new pattern is called Cassidy, and it is described as “a knit reversible top with a twist.” This is such a perfect description! The pattern features a fun “knot” that can be worn in the front or the back.
Here it is with the knot in the front. I made the top length using this beautiful eggplant brushed sweater knit from Knitpop. It is such a soft fabric, and it makes the sweater so comfy!
It also looks amazing with the knot in the back.
I also made a tunic length Cassidy using double brushed poly (DBP), also from Knitpop. The drape of the DBP gives a different look than the sweater knit. The pattern recommends:
- Medium to heavy weight sweater knit with 2-way 25%-50% stretch is ideal. Vertical stretch will add extra drape. Not recommended for fabrics that tend to “grow”
The DBP is different than the recommendations, and does drape much more than the intended look. However, I do think it makes a cute tunic/mini dress.
Whichever way you choose to wear it, the Cassidy is a stunning pattern! I haven’t had a chance to make the new Sundance skirt pattern that is also being released along with the Cassidy, but it is beautiful!
Fabric: Brushed sweater knit and double brushed poly from Knitpop.
