Still working on my own knitting pattern, but in the meantime here's a cardigan knitted from someone else's pattern: Paulie.
The yarn is a mystery acrylic from the secondhand shop; it was more or less the right colour, so I didn't mess around with changing a single thing about the pattern, which I loved. (Sometimes knitting is like shopping; I see a picture and I want the garment.)
Of course it seems strangely too big and too small at the same time, and there's a weird pouffey thing happening around the shoulders. But that's me, not the pattern. I crocheted a chain along the inside of the collar to stop it slipping off, but still have to keep it buttoned to keep it on, so I suppose I do really have very round shoulders.
