For as long as I can remember I have had a longing to be a knitter, someone that can actually wear what they have crafted. To be honest though I really don't have much in the way of confidence, or skills. Like most though I ease my knitting desires into a pinterest board, and that is where I found this beauty.
Now as you can see this is just a combination of squares, which is just as well as there is not a pattern but a little picture with measurements from a Cila. I decided to make this a guide and make a shortened version without such a long cowl neck.
I frantically managed to knit and put together in one weekend using a super chunky yarn. I love it, its warm and cosy, so good for layering up. I enjoyed the knitting process, my desire to learn more skills has gone up a notch. Overall a good weekends work.
My makes low down :
1. to improve on : I think the shoulders are a little wide, they are almost a mini sleeve, so you could shorten or lengthen .
2. didn't go to plan : the neck line, needs to be either longer to turn over or shorter to stand alone.
3. what do I love about it : its ease, its warm, it was fun !
4.would I make it again : oh yes!!!
