I haven't been connected much this week because I've been working hard to finish this crocheted cardigan!



It's for one of my co-workers, who is having a baby girl next month. The pattern is the Petal Cardigan from Mon Petit Violon on Etsy and Ravelry. I snagged the discontinued yarn at a local yarn shop and am love with the color!

Yay for finishing a project! :) (Sammy approves as well!)

Wow Bethany!! Awesome job!! That's beautiful!! My mom could knit beautiful things too, but I never inherited the gift from her. :( But I do crochet. I always admired people who can knit as beautifully as you! She's going to be a very well dressed little girl!! ;)

That is adorable and I'm sure your friend will be thrilled that you took the time to make something so beautiful for her little girl.

I love the color, stiches, trim and buttons -- it's perfect!!

Absolutely perfect! That little girl will be unrivaled in her fashion choices!! :D
I wish I had caught on to knitting or crocheting, but I tried knitting and ended up using the needles as chopsticks (no just kidding, but still, it was bad...) and I can only crochet in a straight line :giggle:
Awesome job, Bethany.
Next up: Sammy wants a green jumper with birds on it! :laugh:

Thank you, everyone! I woke up feeling accomplished this morning now that the cardigan is finally finished. :)

The stitch is actually super easy - the normal stitch is just a double crochet (triple in UK crochet terms) and the bigger stitch is just single crochet then popcorn stitch (YO and pull up a loop until you have 7 loops, then YO and pull through all) in the same stitch. Skip one stitch and repeat. Turn and repeat the row to get the popcorn stitch in the other direction. The hardest part of the pattern was following the instructions for the silver petals, but I got them after a few tries :)

Thanks again for the comments! They made my day :)
