I knit, crochet, sew, quilt, take photos, draw, and do other crafts as well. I adore alpaca wool and other natural materials (cotton, feathers, gourds, wood, and even coconut shells!) and try to do some crafting every day.
A couple of years ago, I began designing knit and crochet items (I confess that I am somewhat addicted to hats...love, love, love hats and have made many for gifts, to donate, and once in while for myself). Small items that work up quickly and travel easily, like hats, wrist warmers, and scarves, seem to be on many people's lists, although I also love making shawls and larger fashion items, as well as toys and dolls. Really, I suppose I haven't come across anything I won't at least try, and I hope you are adventurous in your work, too!
I liked the pullover version so much that I wanted to convert it into a cardigan. This one is worked top down, back and forth for the body, with sleeves knitted in the round. Ribbing creates texture in the body, and the sleeves and hem have a scalloped edge. You can add as many buttons as you wish, as the i-cord edging runs from one bottom front around the neck to the other and buttonholes are made as you go. Buttons are 1" and the model's buttons are custom-made. Color for this one is Sequoia Heather.
