……from The Rowan Cocoon Collection, beautiful soft yarn to knit with but very delicate. Pull too hard and the yarn breaks. I have to admit, this is not one of my loved projects. I love the design but I don’t feel I suit this at all. It makes me look like I’ve gained a few pounds instantly!
Overweight + Bulky yarn = ENORMOUS! I look like I’ve had just a few many cream cakes. It’s not for me which is a shame as I do love the design so without a doubt it will be gifted to a family member, who needs a few extra pounds added to their weight.
The sleeves also came out a little too long and I also blocked this too long on the body….silly me read the measurements wrong and s t r e t c h e d it like crazy. Ah well…..at least it covers my fat butt, but come to think of it….it emphasizes it!
Rowan Cocoon colour Scree 7.5 skeins.
Needles 6mm and 7mm
Button, from an old cardigan that Mr Snobs felted in the wash.
No mods…..exactly as pattern.
A very very warm snug cardigan for the winter. Love the yarn, love the design, just not for me 😦
