Cardigan Finished

Excuse the very poor photo set-up but here is my cardigan completed.  I like the shape of it very much, the three-quarter sleeves and the waist band.  I'm not completely happy with the yarn (but since I didn't invest much and it all came from stash, I can't complain too much) but I think I would eventually remake this in another yarn.  It only took me about 5 days (amongst all the other things I have to do of course) so I think that's pretty quick to complete a whole cardigan.


Best wishes,
Frivole

  3. It's very trendy! - the sort of garment that is in the shops this year. Are you not happy with the yarn because it's perhaps not as drape-y as the style demands? - if you do make it again, it will be good to have this template to work on and adjust as you go.
    Borrow a living breathing model and let us see it on!

  7. I love the shape and design, of this sweet cardigan! As I recall, you used both a silk yarn and a bamboo yarn. They are certainly a good match, and I can't tell if you needed to use the bamboo other than at the waistband and sleeve band. I've never crocheted a 'shaped' garment, so that would be a challenge for me in reading the instructions! I've made vests, but they were basically straight pieces.
