- Royal Blue Hatchi Sweater Knit - If you haven't heard of hatchi knit, that's no surprise. It's only really appeared on the market in the last decade, and the name is hardly descriptive. But at its core, it's a sweater knit with a looser weave than jersey and soft, semi-fluid drape. That makes it a great choice for this cardigan pattern. The yarn-dyed knit, mottled with royal blue and black, is incredibly soft, with a brushed hand and great stretch. The addition of spandex also gives it good recovery, which is ideal for the sleeves of the pattern. A great color and a great knit!
- Turmeric Cotton Modal Jersey - While we said we were sticking mostly with neutrals, we couldn't resist this color! An earthy yellow, this color is perfect for the fall and will brighten up any outfit. The cotton modal blend has both strength and softness and a healthy dose of spandex gives it great stretch. If you're looking to liven up your fall wardrobe, this is the fabric for you!
