I finished the cardigan i was working on from the garnstudio site, pattern here: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=89&d_id=15&lang=us

I made the large size, and its the first item of clothing i've completed, so i'm quite proud of it, i used an acrylic yarn in denim, mainly because i didnt want to spend too much on a yarn to find out i can't do the cardigan, but i think i'll attempt at some point to make another with a nicer yarn, although the acrylic yarn isnt too bad.

Very nice!  Any chance of an action shot?  It looks lovely.

Did you find that the Garnstudio patterns were easy to follow?

Congratulations on finishing a great piece!

pretty! I think it turned out nice in the denim color- I often use acrylic yarn the first time around too! What did you think of the pattern?

Great job!

Very nice! How does it drape? I thought of making this, but was afraid it wouldn't drape as well as in the original pattern pic.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

Thanks everyone  Grin

Yes, i found the garnstudio pattern easy to follow, at the moment i'm doing two other patterns, i'm so impatient i work on different items at once, and seem to be following them pretty well. I thought the diagrams were confusing when i discovered the site and looked at the patterns but that was because i was new at reading patterns, and still learning but the garnstudio patterns seem easy to follow for me and i've only been crocheting since christmas time.

The item doesn't seem to have as much the drape/fitted look at the bottom as on the picture but that might be because i did a bigger size, possibly.

I will try and get an action shot to add when i can, to get a better look at the fit. I really like it, its a bit too hot to wear at the moment, but will be nice and warm in winter  Smiley

very nice! i wanted to make a garnstudio cardy a couple months ago, printed out the pattern and took it to my mum (she's the resident expert). we could NOT wrap our minds around the pattern! we took to reading it out aloud slowly, pausing to make sure we understood it, and then ended up giving up and me making a little cat. haha!

so mad props for tackling the pattern! or it might be that my mum and i are complete fools. i'm leaning toward the latter.

hope you enjoyed my novel.. tehehe. to the point though, excellent work, the stitching looks mighty fine. Smiley

Tobias Fnke: So what are your plans for this evening?
Bob Loblaw: I thought that maybe I would stay in and work on my law blog.
Tobias Fnke: Ah, yes. The "Bob Loblaw Law Blog". You, sir, are a mouthful.
