DIY Knitted Cable Bomber Cardigan

Spending my free time as productive as I can these days. Today I’m more than happy to share with you my FIRST SELF KNITTED CARDIGAN. I’ve been thinking a lot about my wardrobe lately and I’ve made a New Year’s resolution that I kind of want to work on right now. My resolution is to wear more self made clothes, including knitwear. Working for over 5 years in fast fashion made my point of view so different that it used to be. I used to follow trends, now I follow MY style.

Let’s talk about this cardigan! Shall we? As a disclaimer I want to say that this is not a sponsored post and I purchased this cardigan kit all by myself. 

To make my cardigan I used 6 balls Sexy Crazy Wool in Eucalyptus Green colour which is 100% made out of wool. You can find the cardigan HERE.

When the kit arrived, I was so excited that in the next 15 min I was already on my bed with a hot cup of tea, ready to start knitting. I must admit one thing: I’ve made A LOT mistakes! As I’m a beginner in knitting this cardigan was quite a challenge for me and I don’t know if it is just me or it will pass as I get more experience but when I took my eyes of the work and watch Netflix meanwhile knitting, I would do things wrong. Only to notice 5 rows after! Knitting is far more challenging that I thought and hands down to people who do it.

Nonetheless, after over 12h of making I finally finished my piece and I can truly say this is the warmest jumper is my wardrobe. I actually wear it as a jacket at the moment! I am so so happy with the results and cannot wait to knit another piece!

    Hi, this looks great, well done you! Btw, for those enquiring, LoveCrafts have the pattern to buy separately now. Think I am going to give this one a whirl!

    Looks fabious!!! Great job!
    I checked on their site and it is very pricy, eventually will cost me 140Euro, which is quite expensive. I wish they would sell pattern only.

      Thank you so much! Yes, it’s a pity they don’t sell patterns only. They might be pricey, but their wool is the best quality I used tbh ๐Ÿ™‚

    I already have enough of the wool from Wool and the Gang to make this cardigan. Can you just buy the pattern for this lovely Cable Bomber or do you have to buy the whole kit to get the pattern?

      Unfortunately, WATG sells knitting patterns only as a kit with the yarn. It’s a shame, I also have some yarn and would love to buy a pattern only from them. Perhaps they’ll change it one day x
