The Marlo Sweater is beloved in the sewing community and we can definitely see why! It's the perfect layering piece and works with a large variety of fabrics such as sweater knit, french terry, sweatshirting, polar fleece, rib knit and boucle.
You can even use a non-stretch fabric for the body as long as the binding has 20% stretch!

Interlock fabrics are a lovely thick, stretchy, soft fabric that is semi-structured and would be great to wear throughout the colder months. It would be perfect for sewing a garment like the Marlo cardigan as it would hold the shape of the design beautifully.
