I feel like this has been a long time coming! I’m so excited to finally have my Delancey Cardigan finished and ready to wear constantly.

Delancey! Delancey!

I’m in love. It fits great, the colors are ridiculous – I pretty much feel like I’ve branded myself SWEATSHOP OF LOVE when I’m wearing it – but hey, nothing wrong with branding, right?

And It Looks Good With My Lions Shirt!

I seamed down the collar and it was an amazing decision. It was looking weird the way the outermost blue section was the only part flipping down. I don’t know if it was because I used two different yarns or if it was just that the collar needed to be bigger, but seamed down it looks great and now I don’t have to worry about it looking weird while I’m wearing it.

The Back is My Favorite!

And I’m pretty in love with the little stripe I added to the bottom band! It adds a little more interest. Like this sweater needed more interest! Go big or go home.

Stripes and Buttons Galore!

I’m not a buttoner, really, and it’s a good thing. It’s pretty pully. I meant to button it up to show how it ended up fitting, but, as you can see, that didn’t happen.

Knitting the shorter version was the right answer, and knitting the smallest size worked out perfectly. But this means the end of another knit along! I’ll be sharing more finished Delancey Cardigans from the KAL on Monday. There are a few trickling in on the FO forum and they are all looking awesome.
