That’s right! It’s all done!

As you can see I had to put a fair bit of blue in the top of the body to finish it off, but I think it graded nicely.

The toggles are a little smaller and lighter than I had imagined, but I think they still work. The arm holes are tighter than I think is good for such a heavy cardigan and so far there aren’t any pockets, but I will remedy the second problem with a couple of pockets on the inside at a later date.

For all these faults I’m still so happy with how it turned out. It’s super warm and has lots of character while still being very wearable. The high collar is great, super warm and gives it a bit of drama.

So that’s it, my biggest knitting project finally comes to an end. It only took a little over 3 years!
