A New Sweater Project


Crochet always seems to surprise me. The projects I expect to go quickly take forever, and the ones that I expect to take forever go quickly. I started this sweater last week and I’m already done with the body. I thought working with crochet might be a bit difficult because I don’t know as many tricks like I do with knitting. I shouldn’t be so surprised that things are going smoothly because I’ve made so many cropped cardigans, and this is just a simple top down raglan.  I’m slightly concerned that I have too much negative ease because crochet doesn’t stretch the same as knits, but I’m going to keep going with it.

  1. That looks great so far!

  2. Well, it could be an open cardigan, which would make it perfect.

    1. It’s my own design. I’ll probably publish the pattern if it turns out well.
