Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Hardwick Link to website or photo www.clotheshorsemag.com/library/lady-of-the-manor-fall-2012/15826437 What are you most proud of? I'm proud of the overall result. After a bit of work, the design really came together. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're using a soft yarn like Berroco Blacktone Tweed, sewing a good sturdy lining is essential. Make your own template by tracing the outline of your blocked/crocheted pieces onto paper, then add 1/4" to 1/2" seam allowance on all sides.
