Love that sweater!! Can we get a close-up pic of the yarn? I'm dying to see the shiny variegated bits. Smiley

Completely rainbow obsessed SAHM to 3 & hoping to add #4 to our family this fall!

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

Here's a close up of the yarn, not a great pic, but the best I could get with available lighting. You can see my kitten's paw in the corner, she is so nosy Tongue


I made a quick picture tutorial on how to do the top part, it's kind of confusing, but hopefully someone will be able to understand it, heh:

I was so excited when I clicked on this and saw that it was crocheted! Normally, if I see clothing I like, it's knit. Which I don't do.

Then I was a little disappointed to see there was no pattern for it. BUT, now I am getting excited again, cause I'm going to look closely at your tute and see if I think I can do this.

This looks really nice on you. A very flattering design.

You gotta love a MIL that gives you yarn. I like Icelandic Jewels.

The tute is very understandable! YAY!
One question......on #3, "make a chain as long as you want the top part of your sweater". What is the top part? From the armpit to the waist?

Thanks for the help and the tutorial  Grin

Love it!  I'm so impressed that you can do that without any sort of pattern to follow.  I'm just not that good.  lol  Looks great on you.

Just noticed the tute - thanks!  I'm gonna have to see if I can give it a go for myself.

Yep, you've got it right, the top part is from the armpit to however long you want it, I did mine until the chain ended right under my bust, where the ribbon is threaded through. You could do a shrug, or even a full length sweater by altering the length.
