This cardigan was a fabulous knit, and it certainly makes me feel a bit like a movie star wearing it.  Using chunky yarn and large needles it only took about a month and a half to complete.  Can you believe that I can get away with only this cardigan in Scotland?  That's global warming for you.



For more go to my Flickr for photos courtesy of my husband.
Pattern: Amelia Raitte's Flicca
Yarn: Rowanspun Chunky
Amends: Shortened length of the cardigan, made the sleeves a bit less belled, otherwise it was really well written and beautifully shaped.  I still would like to either add toggles or a belt to it, it was a bit chilly with it open.

Thanks.

Thanks everyone for your comments, it is really quite warm, and rather rugged due to the yarn even if it looks sophisticated.

Cranberry: I had bought it a few years ago when it had just been discontinued for about 30, it took about 9.5 hanks.

Sweater? What sweater? I only see a really pretty girl. You DO look like a movie star!

Incidentally, you look a lot like my best friend from high school. She is Nepali.
