I present the beginning of my Uber Girlie Cardigan. (It's also an excuse to get some Black Bendigo 8ply Cotton, but dont tell The Boi). Black and baby pink, so retro and girlie - I hope.
I'm making the 40inch bust size, which actually knits to 41 inch when complete. Taking into account negative 2-3 inches for cotton's stretch, it should fit about right. (Photographed on an old 1940's Style pattern book - the cover girl is awesome in her retro-ness).
