Is it a sweater? Or is it a shawl? The right answer is “both!” The cardi-wrap fashion trend gained ground this winter, and we don’t see it fading anytime soon. The versatile cover-up (you can wrap, twist, and tie it in at least a half-dozen ways) is perfect for spring days and summer nights, as well.

Anna Mazur—a contributing editor for Sew Stylish and our sister publication Threads ( and fashionista extraordinaire—recently showed us how to whip one up in an hour. The cardi-wrap boils down to a rectangle with sleeves! So grab a beloved fabric and try out her cool design. Here's a printer-friendly PDF of the project below:

NOTE: Different computers may print out the PDF pages at different percentages. Adjust the scale of the armhole pattern as necessary.

This is a beautiful piece and for those cool morning and cool buildings, it will work perfect in my closet. If it is as simple as it looks, I will have several in different colors and might make some for some of my fellow teachers for Christmas.
