Blue cardigan

I have forgotten to show you my cardigan. I have knitted it between all the other items I made this past winter.It took a while because I didn't have a pattern and had to find out the measurements myself.
I have knitted three sleeves ;)  the first one was like the back pattern, when it was half way, I didn't like it at all. Then I started a sleeve with cables , like the front parts, when that was half way I didn't like it either, far tooo much!
At last I knitted the sleeves in reversed stockinette. That was the best option. It is a very heavy cardigan, almost a coat. Used 20 skeins of 50 grams Viking Sport. Size XXL.
Now I have to find 5 large dark-blue buttons which is not so easy here. No shops which sell buttons. Have to look in an other place.

Nydelig jakke i en herlig farge. Jeg kjenner igjen det med å strikke flere ganger. Jeg har det sånn selv. Men det er viktig at man liker sluttresultatet. :)

Masse knapper å få kjøpt på nett. ;) Jeghar kjøpt meg et sånt lite sett til å lage knapper med også - så nå skal jeg prøve å lage mine egne. Gøy.

Ha en super dag.
