The One-Hour Cardigan That Took Two

About a month (or more) ago, I made this one-hour cardigan. It actually took two.


First, it was a pain in the you-know-what to cut out. (It's jersey.)

And then the armholes were too small and I had to cut, a little at a time, to enlarge the opening.


But, in the end, I think I like it. That's my way of saying that I'm still getting used to it. (The shoulders sit low and it's a different feeling.)

I made the middle length and then shortened it to the shortest length. And then I lengthened the sleeves to fit my gorilla arms.
