Suggestions for patterns or links to rtw garments I might bat off for a longish cardi bordering on coat to make in a wool jersey would be gratefully received. I've had this jersey forever, bought it to make a dress, then went off the idea. I think I'd get a lot more use out of a top layer. It's a plain green fabric, so something which has a bit of style to compensate for zero fabric interest would be good.

I have this pattern in my basket at present. Was waiting to see if McCalls patterns were going to be reduced any day soon (have been waiting for two weeks now).

It seems to be quite a versatile pattern. I have some jersey already for it.

Oh! I just noticed it is a 'learn to sew ' pattern. Not noticed that before, although am sure it is ok?
I just chose it as I liked the pattern and had some jersey in mind for it. I'm not a learner or a novice but the pattern looks good.

I have this one and it's on my list to do soon.  I recently completed the Papercut Kochi Kimono and was quite pleased with the pattern draft and fit. Looking forward to making the Sapporo.

I like

Really lovely, Utta! I might see if I can build that into my 6PAC. :)

I downloaded the template for the Sauna Coatigan (nightmare to sign in to the website), but, it is only the pattern, no instructions unless you buy the magazine.

No problem at all for you lot I'm sure!

So many possibilities now! I've looked at all of them and it's helping me clarify what might work. I love the Papercut Patterns one, and the one from Bootstrap with a similarly bulky shape. I need to pull this fabric out and play with it a bit, because both of these look as though they'd be great with one of those knits with a bit of texture and bulk. In my mind my fabric is thinner, not a thin drapey jersey, but not a hefty one either. Other likes - the pocket detail on the Style Arc and the neckline on the Woolover one. Thanks for all of the great input ladies! Let us know when you get to cut out the Sapporo Mudcat.
