Hi all!

I love Candi Jensen's crochet patterns for kids. I just bought Candy Tots and Candy Babies, and I'm going to be making lots of clothes from these books in the upcoming months. Thought maybe there were others who would like to crochetalong.

This is my first project



from Candy Tots. I have 7 of these squares done -- only 151 to go! Cheesy

Welcome lizzy.cos! I have that magazine too, and that cardigan is adorable.

Also, MopTopStumptown, when I started this project I did a search here at craftster to see if anyone else had made it and found yours. It is wonderful! I hope mine is as nice Smiley

Last count I had about 26 squares done. You could start to see how the back is going to look if I could get a picture taken that is not absolute yuck



Did not let lack of progress on that project, or lack of time, prevent me from starting another one from the same book



A friend and I are working this pattern together while she learns to crochet. We're doing two different colors. Unfortunately, we won't see hers here because she's not on craftster. (I don't understand it, either.)

The Sweetpea Cardigan is coming along.  I had to frog the sleeves because they were too small and do them again with a larger hook.  I think that as I got faster my work got tighter. Anyhow, now it is ready to sew up and then I can start the lacy bits.

I wanted to share my finished Sweetpea Cardigan from Interweave Crochet Spring 2006.  I actually used the exact materials suggested (a bit unusual for me) but I just liked the colors so much.  This cardigan is mostly single crochet with lace trim at the waist and cuffs plus silk ribbon embroidery.
