I was inspired by pictures of Jessica Alba in a chunky caramel hued long knitted cardigan to make one for myself.
I bought this chunky knit fabric on ebay. It’s a lovely brown colour and despite the thickness, still manages to drape quite nicely. The pattern looked complicated on paper, but once you have cut the fabric, it really wasn’t hard to figure out how to put the bits and pieces together. I used the overlocker for everything, except to join the sleeves on to the body. I wouldn’t have been brave enough to tackle this fabric without an overlocker!
