Quest for the perfect cardi - cardi number 2. I think this is a bit thick to be the perfect cardi, but it'll be useful when it gets colder again, finished it just in time for some warmer weather to hit the UK. First zip ever tackled, and I think it's a success, it needs a stabilizing ribbon to be sewn over it on the inside to hide the slight messiness.

Modifications: Made a collar rather than a hood. Ran into issues with the number of stitches I had when I got to the hood section so basically just winged the collar. Considered doing a folded over collar, but the yarn was so thick I thought it would strangle me if I did it double thick!
