Awesome pattern

I love that it can be very basic or very versatile too you literally could make several in different colors and do different versions and they would all be completely different!! I love that about this pattern and the fit was wow ... Perfect!! I can't recommend this pattern enough it's so awesome and so easy to sew too!! Thank you so much I absolutely love it 💜💜💜


I like the whole package of Ikatee: perfect pattern, great video’s and the result you were hoping for. I am a happy customer.

Great pattern

Everything about this pattern worked really well. The pattern prints and fits together really well. Sewing instructions are thorough with clear images, and the pattern pieces are all accurate and the finished product is beautiful. A beautiful, simple little cardigan for my granddaughter, the first of many to come.
This was the first iKatee pattern I purchased which was quickly followed by several more.

Perfect little cardigan!

I sewed this Ikatee pattern first and quickly purchased two more. My first version was made from a soft organic cotton knit with a band on the bottom. The second was made from a double sided prequilted cotton denim. I finished all seams and edges with red flannel bias binding and completed the look with bright red buttons. I can see myself making this over and over as my grand baby grows. Thank you!

I just love this pattern. It's so simple to make yet looks very professional when finished. I have made two, one in white fleece (size 1 month) with a lime green trim around the neckline (cut from Tee shirt fabric) and lime green Kam snaps, so cute. The other was in Baby Pink fleece (size 6 months) with white neck trim, white Kam snaps & a white daisy embroidered on the pockets. I am now about to start making some for Charity to go out to Gambia. I'm sure I will use this pattern again and again. Just a different trim or a bit of embroidery can really make your jacket individual and it's such fun to make. Shame there is no option to show photos.
