Hi guuuuuys!

Download time again. Today I bring you a cute, knitted cardigan, inspired by the very best website for knitting patterns, Petite Knit. I knitted this balloon cardigan of theirs myself and I’m obsessed. It’s made of soft merino, mohair and silk. I knitted it in the same off-white as you can see on the website, but since this is Sims 3, it can have all the colours of the rainbow. So let’s have a look!


  • This is a new mesh made entirely by me, inspired by Petite Knit’s Balloon Cardigan
  • Created for the Sims 3.
  • For young adult/adult females.
  • Custom CAS/Launcher thumbnail.
  • Shows up as a top under everyday and career.
  • Disabled for random.
  • ~10k polys = VERY HIGH. Recommended for photos, not gameplay.
  • Has morph states.



The cardigan comes with three presets: a plain white with knit texture, a non-textured version with stripes and solid colour cuffs, and a non-textured version with a pattern and knit pattern cuffs.


The cardigan has three channels: The main cardigan, the buttons, and the cuffs.

Known Issues

The cardigan will clip with certain bottoms, such as if they have very bulky belts or chains.

There is likely to be some clipping for poses that involve grabbing the sim’s arms and waist.

With more extreme slider settings, the buttons and general shape of the cardigan may distort. Especially the top button will distort if you have very small or large breasts.

The under-arm part doesn’t have the prettiest bone assignment, as you can see below:

Thank You!

As always thanks a bunch for downloading. Today I looked at some of the download numbers for my tops and the counts are, frankly, insane. It means a lot to know that people like and download the stuff I make. If something isn’t right with this, please don’t hesitate to say. I’m very distracted lately. 😅

Also, a shout-out to lovely Audrey of New Beginnings, just because thanks to her, I always giggle at the name of this cardigan. If you know her story, you know what I mean. 🤣

As always, I’ll see you guys in the next post,

You are so talented. I fired up TS3 a couple of weeks ago and I realize just how much I miss the color wheel. 😭😭😭
