When you’re ready to finish your cardigan, you can hem it in a variety of ways. The simplest is to turn under and stitch 1″ (2.54cm) along the bottom edge. This will create a clean, finished look without having to stitch it through the front of your garment. Alternatively, you can add a contrasting fabric to the bottom edge for a more dramatic effect. If you choose to do this, be sure to press the seam allowances toward the hem band and tuck them under before you stitch. This will help to keep your hem from fraying.

Finish the outfit with tan pointed-toe slingback flats for comfort and style.
