From Made By Rae:

Citrine is a cardigan designed for knit fabrics. The pattern features unique raglan seams and is finished with wide double-fold bindings for the neck, waist and cuffs. This comfortable design is quick and easy to sew and is the perfect layering piece to add to your wardrobe.  

Choose from two sleeve styles: fitted or balloon, two waist options: straight or gathered, and optional buttons to help you customize your cardigan. Two front bodice pattern pieces - with and without a dart - are provided to provide fit flexibility for different busts.

Recommended Fabrics: Citrine can be made with the same fabric for both the main garment and bindings, or with a contrasting fabric for the bindings. The binding fabric must have at least 70% stretch.*

  • For main garment: I recommend light to medium weight knit fabrics such as stretch terry, sweater knit, jersey, or rib knit with at least 30% stretch.
  • One note here: thicker fabrics such as terry, or fabrics that don’t have much drape may be better suited to view B, since the view A waist can be fairly boxy if you use a fabric with less drape. However, if you like that look - go for it! It’s really up to you!
  • For the bindings (neckband, waistband, cuffs): Rib knit or sweatshirt ribbing with at least 70% stretch, if I’m not using the main fabric for my bindings.

    * So if your main fabric has at least 70% stretch, you can use the same fabric for both or choose a contrasting fabric for the bindings. If your main fabric has less than 70% stretch, choose a second fabric with at least 70% stretch for the bindings.
