I have finally finished my bulky knit cardigan that i think i started in 2009. I completed most of the knitting quite quickly but didn't know how to pick up the stitches for the collar so i put it away and forgot about it. I was really excited to get it done, but unfortunately it didn't turn out as well as i hoped :(
It is very boxy/misshapen and came out too large, i think its stretched quite a bit. The yarn was a very cheap acrylic that i got in the sale and after i have worn it twice it is looking very scruffy.
In the photo i have pinned it across the neck with a button brooch i made. I do love the style and the shape of the collar so if i made it again i would make the body longer and go down a size (and choose a better yarn) I am still going to wear it though, its warm and cosy so that's a good thing.
I really want to start on this cardigan next.......
