First cardigan finished - thank you!
2 Attachment(s)
Hi guys, just finished my first cardigan yaaay!

I started knitting in September. Made a chunky scarf and then a poncho for my granddaughter for christmas and I just finished this thanks to your help in reading the pattern. The cardigan is knit in Faroe chunky on 6.5mm needles. I have made two pockets but have yet to sew them on - I'm still deciding on that whilst the cardi is being blocked on the dining table. I shortened the pattern by 10cm as I am only 5' 4". I wish the button was higher and the drop shoulder makes me feel like a rugby player but overall I am thrilled with my first proper knit and now looking forward to my next one. Apologies for picture quality and location :)

I think it looks fantastic and I love the yarn! Great job! I've yet to knit a cardigan, but I have the yarn for one and it's something I'll tackle soon!
