A cardigan I finished sometime ago. Simple and cheap 2 ply wool yarn bought at Tampere Art and Craft center during our job trip to Finland (We looked at finnish landrace horses and cows and it was very cold. Oh and yes, I went to Moominvalley :)
One-piece, seamless, very easy-going pattern – Yellow Wall by Judy Brien on Ravelry.
While knitting I had a suspicion it would turn out quite oversized, and it did, but I decided to try to felt it a bit in hot soapy water. First tried on a little sample and then on a whole sweater and quite happy with the result – it all feels smoother and warmer, it somehow worked well for this particular yarn. (And it is exactly my size!)
