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.
