When I started crocheting, I told myself that I would never go with the status-quo. Never would I want to even consider making solely doilies, scarves, mitts, even sweaters. Recently I decided to challenge myself and try to make my own wardrobe (since I craft every second I get). What I realized was that I really needed some more sweaters! And that was that!
You may recognize the yarn I used, it's from a backpack I crocheted in a previous post. the backpack didn't "work out" but, I swear I've been using the same beige Vanna White yarn for three months, knitting then unraveling, crocheting, then unraveling!! Hopefully this project will stay in place!



The core of the sweater is knit b/c I meant to knit most of it, but I ended up crocheting more, so it's only fit to put it here, right? Wink

I, for one, like the mix of knitting and crochet. It gives a nice contrast of textures.

Don't frog this one! If you are wanting to frog it, send it to me instead! Did you use a pattern or just wing it?

I love the idea of crafting one's own wardrobe. That's a good challenge/personal goal: if not crafting the entire wardrobe then at least not buying anything more and having the only new pieces crafted by yourself. Inspiration! Thank you!

Hey everyone, hope you can pardon my lateness!
I thought I'd reply to say thanks for the comments, and I'm glad I inspired some people to finish their own projects and such! And no worries, I will not frog this one! And as for the looming question, this is my own pattern.
Thanks again Cheesy
