I have been expanding my crochet skills into making clothes, and I thought this Braided-Edge Crochet Cardigan by Linda Dean Crochet, pattern in the Oct 2016 issue of Crochet World would be the perfect pattern to work! I ended up using a heavier weight yarn than the pattern called for, so I had to adjust the pattern several times to make it work. It turned out amazing!
My son's 3rd grade teacher is an amazing woman, friend, and teacher! I can go on and on about how great she is. For many reasons, I wanted to make something fantastic to show my appreciation for her, so this cardigan was my gift to her! She and I are very similar in size, so I knew that if it fit me, it would fit her.
My family and I going to Disney World next week (!!!) so I decided to bring this in and give it to her today! She loved it, and it looked beautiful on her!
