    About

    This was an experiment that has worked beautifully. I wanted to see if I could create a sweater from my vintage cardigan pattern and was curious to see how it would look in a different yarn.

    The original design used Rowan Felted Tweed Aran and resulted in a lovely vintage look. Using Kidsilk Haze and not altering the pattern at all I have ended up with a lovely light and fluffy sweater that is really quite glamourous and has a real 80's vibe to it.

    It used 6 balls of yarn in total so it won't break the bank.

      Adore the boat neck style, high at the front but wide and very elegant, and the width of neck line is really emphasised here. Like the idea of making it in a fine light yarn, as it's quite unexpected and airy. Lovely work!
