I know I’ve been promising to post pictures of this for ages, anddd here it is, finally!

I’m still so glad I decided to redo this sweater. The first version was definitely a learning experience but thinking back, I really had no idea what I was doing. I contemplating lining the hood on this one like the other one, but I really like it better as a thicker cardigan than as a fluffy heavy knitted coat, which is more of the effect I got with the lining.

I am also contemplating redoing the sleeves, at least several inches up the arm. Right now they’re really wide and kind of shorter than I would like. For some reason I feel awkward about my wrists so I like being able to hide my hands up to where the fingers start. Plus, from looking at a lot of the movie stills, I noticed that in most of the scenes she has the sleeves folded down to normal sleeve length so I think they’re supposed to be ridiculously long.

Not gonna lie, these are waist-up photos because I’m wearing tiny little running shorts. What can I say, it’s laundry day. 🙂

*edit* Yeah, I went back and did some ripping and made the sleeves extra long. Now it’s super cuddly.

I’ve been getting some questions about commissions. If you’re interested in knitting this sweater yourself, Megan Murray on Ravelry is selling a lovely multi-sized pattern on Ravelry for $5. Just follow the link on the top of the page.

If you’d like one knitted for you based on my set of haphazardly scribbled notes that can barely be called a pattern and therefore is not for sale, send me an email at wbkpd1@gmail.com with your chest size for a quote. Just remember that this is a full on sweater with a hood, which means it can get quite time consuming and therefore on the expensive side.
