FO: Adult Cardigan

I knitted this cardigan for a friend from Australia, who had seen a similar cardigan in a shop, but couldn’t find the right size. She picked out the colour of DROPS Eskimo yarn.

It’s one of the easiest adult knits I’ve ever knitted, garter stitch all the way and a very simple pattern, but I think it looks great nonetheless.

I love the yarn my friend picked, especially with the added shade. It was a little tricky to knit with as the darker beige was spun into the light beige and came off in parts, but the finished piece works really well.

The other nice thing about the yarn is that it’s really nice and thick and I was able to knit with 8mm needles, so the cardigan just flew off the needles.
