My first Cardigan

My first attempt at a cardigan below. Just finished it and am very proud. Its a bit large around the chest for me, but I think i know now how to change that measurement in future. I now need to think of my next project. Hmm!

I hope you're very proud of yourself. The sweater is lovely. The collar is very appealing to me.

Great job, and I agree, great color. Well done!

I fully agree that the colour and style are great. Well done. Please tell us the yarn used and if the pattern is yours or from another knitter.

Dave - really nice job. Nothing "just plain" about that! Congrats on your first cardigan. Hoping there are many more in your future. Keep up the good work. By the way it's a great Christmas color.

Thanks, the wool is Rowan scottish tweed chunky, 100% pure new wool. However, this wool has been discontinued sadly. Its a lovely wool and really nice to work with. I luckily found enough online and i think there are a few more out there but apparently it was a very popular yarn. God knows why they've discontinued it. The shade i use is 017 Lobster. The pattern is from Debbie Stoller's Son of stitch n bitch. Its by Jared Flood. There are a couple of misprints in the book which luckily i found out shortly after knitting the wrong stitches. I have just added the pockets to it know. Glad you like it :)

Nice work! I love the color, too.

It looks nice and "comfy" and the extra ease in the chest can really feel good when you're "lounging" around.
