Please help me find the perfect cardigan!

Haven't bought any clothes for months and months as have been so skint. But I would like a new cardy.

I never get my ideal one. I would like a Grandad Cardigan. Not sure what colour.

I don't want it to be fitted at all at the waist etc.

Any ideas?

Have you looked on Woolovers?

WowserBowser Sun 07-Dec-14 17:05:26

Have just had a look (thank you) but all a bit structured. I want something baggy, that looks like it is out if a charity shop. Or was my Granda's.

I'd love a comfy warm cardy too so I'm watching as well!

Give us a budget then!

I like the uniqlo merino ones - £30, machine washable, lots of colours...

uniqlo cardigans

Santa's bringing me one grin.

Uniqlo are my favourites! I have 2 short ones but I shrunk them in the wash!

I like the ones you have linked but they are a bit straight. As in straight lines.

Budget is cheap! As much under £30.00 as is manageable.

Ah, okay. I know, they're not quite boyfriend cardigans. I think they might look less straight when on grin?

I had a nice M&S boyfriend cardigan once. I lived in it when I was pregnant.

The grandad style chunky cardis are £20 in Gap at the minute, reduced from £39.95. Dd chose a maroon coloured one to go to Santa, there were navy, cream & bottle green as well if I recall correctly.

That could be true Wasting

Does anyone know what size I would get? I am 5'9" - in my head I am always a 10 but I am realistically more a 12.

I want it baggy but could it be too baggy?

WowserBowser Sun 07-Dec-14 17:37:15

Have had a look online Bear as they sound promising but can not see them.

WowserBowser Sun 07-Dec-14 17:40:37

I am thinking something like this - or is it grim?

I want to wear it over floral dresses etc to dress it down. Wasn't wanting it as chunky knit though. Or whatever that cable shit is.

The woolovers unisex ones are fantastic and not structured at all. I just bought a wine v neck one. it is great quality and really warm lambs wool. I've only just discovered woolovers and don't know how I managed without it.

WowserBowser Sun 07-Dec-14 17:59:26

Ooh yes, I have just looked again. I do like the Unisex one! Bit expensive but would get it if there is nothing cheaper/I like more.

BearPear Sun 07-Dec-14 17:59:59

The Gap ones are very thick and reach the hip. I was very tempted by the navy to go with jeans.

UncrushedParsley Sun 07-Dec-14 19:45:18

I got one that sounds similar at Matalan for £25. Will try and find a link

UncrushedParsley Sun 07-Dec-14 19:49:15

here it is

UncrushedParsley Sun 07-Dec-14 19:52:54

Might be too chunky for you though. It is quite straight, but such is the nature of the Grandad cardigan fgrin It is warm though!

WowserBowser Sun 07-Dec-14 19:54:34

I LOVE that!! Thanks Uncrushed !

UncrushedParsley Sun 07-Dec-14 19:56:54

You're welcome. I have an online code for 10% off if you want it, and if it works.

WowserBowser Sun 07-Dec-14 19:58:34

Please!! Am just on the phone to my dad but want to ask you some questions about size etc...

UncrushedParsley Sun 07-Dec-14 20:14:59

Have pm'd you. No way I'm putting my size on here! fgrin

WowserBowser Sun 07-Dec-14 20:15:07

Did you get your own size or bigger? Is it roomy? grin

I am quite tall so would want it a bit bigger.

Did you get the emerald green? Is it greener in real life?

Sorry for all the questions - am excited! <loser>
