That's a cute pullover
I have a couple of friends expecting and think this might be worth a try.
I think it would be really cute as a little tie front sweater. I thought you could just half the first ch 62 to a ch 31 and cut all the rest of the stitch counts in half in each of the following rows to make one half of the front panel, but then I get stuck trying to figure out how to make the opposite panel. Once you made one, maybe it would be easy to understand how to change the pattern to jog the torso part over so it's the exact opposite?
Making the same half pattern again and flipping the finished piece over wouldn't work I don't think, because there's usually a front and back to crochet.
Hmm, I guess I'm not helping much. Have you figured anything out yet?
well, this is what i've come up with so far. i'm convincing myself that even though i flipped the second half of the front of the sweater around that the yarn i used 'disguised' the wrong side of the crochet, and since i used a single crochet anyway it's not as noticeable. (i hope!) i still have to get some navy yarn to 'hem' around the cuffs, the bottom of the sweater, and the edges of the 'lapels' (i just folded down the inner corners of the front) and will need to figure out how i'm going to 'tie' the fron... ribboN? more yarn? button and yarn combo? decisions...
and because i suck at keeping track of where i am, i must have lost count of the rows on the right side of the piece because when i was seaming them together i noticed that somehow the front panel was longer than the back panel so it's lopsided. (but you can't see it until you turn the sweater over and since she'll be bundled up, in her car seat on in her wrap with me it won't be super noticeable...
ohhh yeah, and i'm wondering if making pants in this way (2 panels) would work.... but that may require a second post. I know i'm safe for now with the sweater because baby will probably still be too small to fit into it (my son was 8 lbs 2 oz, but was so lost in his layette set i bought for him...lol)
