Weekend Crochet Sweater


This project started off with "I want to do something different".... so I hooked on some Black Simply Soft yarn and my groove was on... my hook was flowing with ease, no tension in sight... about 8" later I went another route and pulled out some White Caron Simply Soft yarn and played with a couple of rows, alternated between black and white. After a couple of rows, decided I did enough playing and continued working in white. In my mind's eye a project was slowly formulating and over a couple of days, I continued working this piece in the round in single crochet. A week later I went in search of crochet and knit magazines to inspire me and after looking at various mags that focused on fall wear... I decided I would do a pullover sweater... once I had completed the body of the sweater I wanted to add a twist and created the sleeves doing open stitch work... and a piece was borne.

Nice, and I really like anything done in the round--seemless and smooth. I like the way the stripes come together. great crochetting.
