The pattern was easy to read and the seller was responsive. The only thing I say as a slight “warning” to anyone smaller than most..... I did message the seller with specifics on body weight and size. She told me she was close to my height so it should be fine. I have finished the piece and obviously I was going for an oversized effect... just letting the tiny ladies know... if you are an xs or xxs... you may need to consider cutting back ALOT on the pattern as you see fit. This is over sized on my fiancé who is 220 pounds, muscular and 6’1. Lol... I learned so much with this piece. I’ve only every knitted a chunky scarf in stockinette so I do feel like it was “beginner friendly”. I’m excited to try again with some alternations.. this is a good base for me to have for another similar but smaller oversized cardi!

I ADORE this cardigan! Once I got used to the 25mm needles this was a very easy, straightforward knit and knitted up very fast. I used We Are Knitters The Wool which is very thick and warm but also very lightweight. The finished piece is enveloping, comfortable and deliciously snuggly. I am writing this from lockdown in Melbourne winter where I am wearing the cardigan every day and it’s keeping me warm and comforted and happy. Couldn’t love it more. Thank you.

I love the sweater I made from this pattern so much I’m making it in another color in a different yarn! I used Malabrigo Rasta in Paris Night and it turned out so nicely!

This was my first knitting project. It's an awesome design! I learned so much. Wool and the Gang has great videos explaining the techniques necessary to complete this project. I ended up using 15 mm needles with a different yarn than the one recommended so I adjusted the pattern as I went along.
