This was an experiment that has worked beautifully. I wanted to see if I could create a sweater from my vintage cardigan pattern and was curious to see how it would look in a different yarn.
The original design used Rowan Felted Tweed Aran and resulted in a lovely vintage look. Using Kidsilk Haze and not altering the pattern at all I have ended up with a lovely light and fluffy sweater that is really quite glamourous and has a real 80's vibe to it.
It used 6 balls of yarn in total so it won't break the bank.
