About time I shared my Oslo!

I made this about a month ago… grabbing a few minutes now to share it with you all!

My first 100% overlocked (oh except the hems of course) project. The Seamwork Oslo!

I actually bought this knit (I think it’s acrylic – uber stretchy) last year, with a slouchy cardigan in mind. The Seamwork Oslo fits the brief perfectly!

Sorry the photos are rubbish, S wasn’t very willing! And we took them at the same time as the photos for my pleated skirt so the outfit is rather mismatch – I wear it with jeans really!!

Oh it’s so nice, such a good cardi to just throw on. It’s actually the kind of thing that I’d buy from the High Street so I think I get a bonus point for that!

The fabric is relatively light and slinky – but warm enough at the same time. Yay!

I didn’t bother with buttons, but I can wrap it right round me if I want to (which I often do!)

Flashing the inners… all overlocked. Oh my goodness isn’t the overlocker so fast! I whizzed it up in no time at all.

But I totally messed up the sleeve cuffs. I don’t know how it even happened but they ended up so big, like they had stretched – but the thing is the pattern piece wasΒ too big to fit to begin with, so they were bound to be a bit… Not sure what happened there but I just left it anyway – I tend to pull the sleeves down round my hands anyway, so it gives me some more sleeve to hold onto – LOL!

But overall yeah I’m really happy with it – and I have been wearing it a lot! If you have the pattern sitting waiting… sew it up already! πŸ™‚

  1. This looks like the perfect wardrobe staple – not surprised you’re wearing it loads! I was bought a chunky cream cardigan at Christmas and have worn it pretty at some point every day since. Still don’t think I can justify an overlocker but seeing makes like this definitely tempt me!

  2. Perfect project for the overlocker and it would be pretty quick and pain free to shorten the sleeves and reattach the cuffs, wouldn’t it? If not, you could always create a thumb hole to make it seem as if they were always meant to be that long:)
