Here’s my progress on the cardigan I started from this free tutorial. Its the one I posted about earlier. I was able to do quite a bit of crocheting while we were driving, but I ran out of yarn about halfway through our stay. Its ok, though. This cardigan is working up really fast, and I’m enjoying making it.
Here’s a more up-close picture that shows the stitch pattern.
As suggested on the tutorial, I’m using a bigger hook than the yarn label calls for, and its making my fabric MUCH have a much better drape and softness. In my first attempt to make a crochet sweater (from a different pattern), I used the size hook the pattern called for, and my sweater ended up resembling a bullet-proof vest; not very flattering. I’m really pleased with how this project is turning out.
