crofter chunky cardigan

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I've knitted a cardigan that actually fits me for the first time! I've been knitting for everyone else for years but now I can finally knit something for me and be happy enough to wear it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Not sure if this is good advice or not but I thought it would be good to start with a simple pattern with yarn that's quick to knit and reasonably cheap, just to prove the concept. Now I've done that I'm going to buy some really nice yarn and attempt Amy's Holloway sweater.

Your Crofter is great; it looks like it fits perfectly. The Holloway is lovely; it on my "to make" list too.
Knitalot answered:
Thank you. I forgot to say that I also made the sleeves a lot narrower as well, I think that helps!
