Crochet: Beyond Rectangles »
Type of item: Clothing
Berroco Vintage DK in Delphinium for the main color and Fennel for the contrast color
What was your inspiration?
My grandmother has been my inspiration for my interest in crocheting although I haven't crocheted in more than 30 years! Since this past November I have made 3 afghans, 1 blanket, 2 shawls, 3 scarfs, and now this baby cardigan. All I want to do is look at different crochet patterns and yarns. My grandmother, who was rarely seen without a crochet hook in her hand, would be so proud of me that I am actually crocheting and finishing each project!
What are you most proud of?
I am really happy I made this sweater. I was intimidated about making clothing and actually putting the pieces together. Linda Permann's "Beyond Rectangles!" online Craftsy course made this a fun, easy project with very clear precise instructions.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have fun and relax! The hardest part was choosing yarn and putting on buttons!
