Another knit complete

Way back last year I blogged about a new cardigan with a Tyrolean design, which I have finally finished at last. I'm so glad to have this cardigan completed!


 
 
 
Although the pattern looks complicated, it was fairly easy to knit as it is repeated all over so I soon got used to it.
The only thing I altered about the pattern was the sizing of the sleeves which I knit a size smaller and reduced the amount of increases as I wanted a tighter fit for a more forties look which I think I have achieved.

 
 

I thought this little bunny brooch was perfect to match. I created a simple roll in my hair and put on red lipstick to complete the forties inspired look. I'm looking forward to wearing this cardigan with my swing trousers to create a more authentic look.

 


 
 
Although this cardigan took a long time for me to knit, I'm very pleased with the final result and I'm sure I'll get a lot of wear out of it.
