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.
