    So much fun

    Loved making this cardigan and the colours are gorgeous! Did have to unravel a few times, and stitching it together was quite difficult, but the Cardigang videos helped a lot. I will say that the colours don’t quite match what is advertised, but I think I like the ones I was sent better anyway. Not perfect, but pretty stoked with my first attempt at knitting a cardigan 😍

    My very first knitting project!

    Before this cardigan kit, I had never even touched a knitting needle. I'm so surprised that my hands were able to create something so beautiful and unique. Cardigang's instructions are clear and I'd recommend this kit to any newbie looking to learn how to knit. It took me about 30-35 hours total over 11 days to create this cardigan from start to finish. But the process was super enjoyable and even when I wasn't sure what I was doing, Cardigang's video instructions were clear enough to help me figure it out. I already can't wait to start my next project.

    So cute!

    I made a size S-M and am usually a size 10-12 and 165cm. It is very cute and is almost a crop cardigan length on me (depending how tight you’ve knitted it might turn out different though)

    Overall I am very happy with the kit - the colours are beautiful and the instructions were pretty easy to follow for the most part. It wasn’t quite as easy as I expected after reading other people’s reviews (for someone who has never knitted before). I think I just had to google really little things and in between steps like how to do a new row after that very first one, and later you need to slip the first stitch of every row and although that sounds super simple somehow it was a challenge, so a little video on what slipping the first stitch on each row does/doesn’t look like would have helped. I started different panels from the beginning a few times because I thought I had messed up, but it turns out it was fine but I didn’t know what it was meant to look like.

    The sleeves were the most satisfying and one of my favourite parts to knit because they actually looked like sleeves once knitted so I was pretty confident I had done it correctly.

    Sewing it together was tricky - I had no idea if I was doing it right 😅 but I just made it up after trying to copy the videos and it ended up joined in some way so hopefully it holds!

    I have already received compliments on my cardigan and am so excited to wear it over and over again - very proud of myself!

    I am a complete beginner who has never…

    THIS NEON SORBET 😍😍

    This was my first cardigang kit! Absolutely loved it, I’ve knitted scarves before but never an actual cardi! (I didn’t even have to call my mum for help!) Instructions were super easy, and the YouTube videos were helpful too. For someone who always wears black, grey and white - I LOVE the colour and I always get compliments when I wear it!!

    Love it!!

    I love this kit and it’s gotten me hooked on knitting! Easy to do despite being a total new beginner. The only thing was that some parts of the wool was poor quality - thick chunks or too thin that it would rip off!

    So satisfying!

    Very new knitter so I’m very happy with the final product which I gave to my 91 year old mum in aged care - she’s getting lots of compliments!
