Textile people or people good with knitting/crochet!! If I were to crochet (correct me if that’s not the right technique) onto this cardy with a thick wool/acrylic yarn, and remove buttons, would I be able make one of those thick shaggy jackets? Would it look okay?

Like those shaggy teddy bear jackets? I think it would be a heck of a lot of unnecessary work.

It would be an absolute pain to do and it still wouldn’t look the same, this would be a lot floppier! Buying the jacket is more worth it!

Yeah kinda like this, I finish uni this week so will have lots of free time, and they sell at £40-80

Oh I haven’t seen those yet! Ok you can do something similar to it quite easily, however it’s going to be pricey on the wool and you’ll need to tie the wool together quite a lot to get the mass. Also is your cardigan really loose? Because this is it going to take a lot of inside space away!

@bluephoenix ahh I didn’t think about t getting smaller inside! I haven’t bought it yet but it’s a 10 and I’m normally an 8/10uk. {GR8xUL2ev} I’ve looked at this for help x

You will definitely need a cardigan that’s a few sizes bigger! Or a very loose and big cardigan like she’s got. Otherwise I think you can do it, instead of taking two stitches like she’s done only take one (to tie your wool around) because the stitches are a lot looser on yours!

Would this one work just as well then? As I found this it’s a bigger size so it’d be 2-3 sizes bigger than me, it is beaded though, thank you for the help.

If the material isn’t too stretchy think so 🧐 (you don’t want it weighted down by the wool) Ahah sorry about all the comments, hope it helps xx

Idk much about all this but i think the second bigger cardigan isn’t sturdy enough to cope with the amount of wool you’d be putting on it.
