I always make my sister a new cardigan for her birthday at the end of August. She has a very specific shape she likes, cropped length, boxy, one button at the neckline and bracelet length sleeves. This shape is not hard to find in knitted patterns but I haven’t previously found a crochet one I like. But now I have. It’s Chevron Lace Cardigan by Milobo which is on Ravelry here.
I’ve had some gorgeous turquoise coloured Rowan by Amy Butler belle organic DK in my stash for a while and I think this is the project for it.
Unusually for me I am actually doing a tension square! I know! But I’ve never crocheted an adult cardigan and I’d like it to be perfect. Or rather as good as I can make it!
I don’t feel bad about starting this as I’ve had a spate of finishitis recently! I have the bench cushion still to do, but it’s so unwieldy I can only comfortably do a row or two at a time. But it’s so huge it’ll be done in no time. 😉
Apart from that I have a little cardy to finish but that’s my current train project, which I may alternate with the giant doily tablecloth!! 😄😄
Either way I have plenty to do!
In other exciting news D’s new grand daughter was born today 🙂 I *may* have celebrated by buying some yarn in The Knitting Goddess sale…
Update… My swatch is too small! Half an inch too small… I need to buy a larger hook. Bloomin’ ‘eck.
