The Madeline Sweater

October 7, 2018

This was my second attempt at crocheting a sweater, and I actually succeeded this time!  I really love how this one turned out.  The design and pattern is by Life and Yarn and can be found here:  https://lifeandyarn.com/2018/04/24/a-free-crochet-pattern/

The pattern was well written and very easy to follow, even for beginners like me.  I used I Love This Yarn in Songbird Stripe.

This time, I picked a yarn that was the called for weight, I used the prescribed hook size, and even tested the gauge.  As I learned with the first sweater, all of these things matter, and because I verified everything, I am very happy with the finished product.

So here are a bunch of in progress photos showing how Owen helped.

And here is the finished product!

I’m so happy with how it came out!! I will definitely be trying out a few more of Life and Yarn’s patterns.
