Summer cotton cardigan

Finished at last!
The really tricky - and slow - bit was the crocheted edging. I'm still at the learning stage and have to have a 'How to Crochet' book handy to check on the different stitches which is why it takes such a long time.

Something didn't quite work out properly - the edging should have been more scalloped than this but I couldn't quite understand some of the instructions about putting the hook in several rows below.
Well, at least I finished it!
and I can have another go some time and get a different edging.

My next project looks like being a crocheted waistcoat,
so fingers crossed that that turns out ok!


  1. I am a knitter too - also sell wool if you re nterested

  2. For now, I'm still working my way through the hidden stash of yarn but one of these days I'll need to buy again....

  3. Thank you. It's not *quite* as it should have been but no one will know! I think I'm getting the hang of crochet at last!
