I started crocheting when I was about 8 years old. I remember my grandmother was very religious and stood by the standard of no work on Sundays. I was caught designing a dress for a doll and got in serious trouble because to her it was work. To me it was fun! Serious difference of opinion there! I have been designing and crocheting since then, I picked up sewing at 10. My first project was a pair of pants that I sewed the fronts together and the backs together instead of a front to a back. Very awkward, but I finally figured it out! Now I make and design most of my own clothes in either medium and often put the two together to create something special.View all patterns by designer (10) »
Once again I needed another sweater for work. I wanted something with an interesting colorway and very lightweight but also very warm. Mohair was the solution! The larger hook makes this sweater very drapy and professional looking. This sweater features lots of patterns to make it interesting. Be aware of the colorway on the yarn, this is the reason I went with 3 skiens, you will need to work to different areas of the yarn to get everything to match just right, but the end result is definitely worth it! The side panels determine the majority of the sizing for this pattern. The larger the panels, the larger the sweater. The shawl collar is a nice stylish touch and the sweater offers a hint of fit for a flattering look. You will also notice that most of the solid stitching is where a sweater usually needs to be the warmest, the shoulders and sleeves. Hand wash in cold water, lay flat to dry.. It handles being hung up tp store very well
