I have copped more flack on this poor project in the knitting process than anything else I have knitted. None of my male acquaintances have had anything flattering to say about this while I was knitting this. “You really gonna wear that thing? It looks like a giant pumpkin!” (Cue gratuitous Charlie Brown picture. It made me think of Linus and the Great Pumpkin, though at least no one was denying my cardigan's existence, just its wearability).
Pattern: Yui cardigan The Knitter Issue 55
Designer: Kyoko Nakayoshi
Needles: 3.75 mm set of dpns for the sleeve cuffs, 4 mm straight needles for the beginning of the collar, 4mm 80 cm long round needle for the body and my favourite jumper length set of antique size 8 (4 mm) Aero needles for the sleeves.
Yarn: Pure wool up-cycled wool from an op shop. I suspect that this is old Bendigo Woolen mills machine wash. 14 balls ranging from 110 to 180 g.
