This is my first proper piece of clothing that I made form scratch. Angela Kane’s instructions are really easy to follow and this is a great first timer project. I made it too big and did a very crude job on making it smaller! It’s fine on the waist but not the arms and neck. I will definitely make it again, but this time smaller.
The material is a heavyish, wool I think. I got it very cheaply in a remnants basket,
