Puffed Sleeve Cardigan,Slightly Felted

in Fitted Knits - Puffed Sleeved Feminine Cardigan

Well, minus the buttons, I finished the Puffed Sleeve Cardigan. When I went to wet block it, I decided to be lazy and use my front loader instead of soaking it in a tub of water. Yeah, I slightly felted it. Though, I like the way it looks, to be honest. It gives it more of that worn, cozy look. Now I just need to get some buttons…I think I like the clear ones in the book’s picture, so I’ll be on the look out for those. I also like that it is a bit felted because the 36 came out a bit bigger than I had hoped. So, I just know now to make the Elizabeth Bennet Cardigan in the 34 instead.
Here is is drying on my mannequin….I stuffed the sleeves with tissue paper to help
give it some body while drying. Too bad I don’t have buttons…I would have been able to wear it tomorrow…oh, well. I think that’s Yoda’s sentiments exactly…

Very pretty. I so need to work on something besides lace. Give Yoda a noogie from me.

it’s a gorgeous color! 🙂 I’m glad the accidental felting was good for it and not a disaster. 🙂
Hi Yoda!

Looks great! Glad the felting worked out for it. I think most of the Fitted Knits tend to run a little bit big (kind of ironic, but that’s what a lot of people have found.)
