>Cardigan Finished


I finished the cardigan yesterday.


The front bands were pulling in quite a bit which was making the fronts pucker. I pinned them out flat and gave them a quick blast of steam with the iron which fixed that problem. It also stopped the edges from curling in. The collar was also pulling in so I gave that the same treatment.

I’m really pleased with the way this turned out. Having said that, I don’t think it will tempt me to make more cardigans in the future, I just can’t be bothered with button bands and buttonhole bands. I think I’ll just stick to jumpers, they’re easier.

Talk to you later,
