Hi all!

Has anyone on here crocheted the new Lana Grossa sweater for August? It sounds like, from reading the directions that aside from the borders of the sweater, its almost all crochet.

Anyway, I'm wondering because it is so cute! I look great in those types of sweaters and wanted to get a read on how hard it was, since they don't rate the ease of construction.

Here's the link:


I usually check it once a month but most of them are knitted! This is the first one I've seen in forever that's mostly crocheted.

The border looks like rib-stitch, totally do-able in crochet! sc in back loops only...


Of course tattoos hurt...they're applied with needles, not kitten whiskers and bunny tails.

RIbbing is jsut knitting and purling in knit so I doubt it's as bad as you think. But if you're really worried then I say try fp bp stitches and see how it goes!
