YAY! I started mine yesterday Cheesy It took three tries to figure out how to do the swirl properly. Duh. You actually let go the loop of colour A and leave it, then start with B, leave that loop behind when starting C, etc. Argh, that was a revelation 2 hours in the making Tongue FYI, I'm using this GORGEOUS premium mohair blend in burgundy, navy, gold and rust, plus I'll be trimming with another random premium yarn that has those colours plus purple in it. The best part? These are all one-off (or small quantity) sample yarns that my local craft shop gets on a regular basis, so they are only $3.25 per ball!

I'm already 3 rows past the armholes. I'm doing it different from the pattern, and more like how most of you seem to have done it. Thank heavens I have most of Lion Brand's "Circular Motion" sweater under my belt or I'd be even more confused. Yes, I'm working on two different sweaters at the same time *slaps own wrist* Tongue

I'll have a picture up later today, and here's the Circular Motion sweater for those interested (must be a member to view):


Can you tell I'm into circles lately?

So the camera had to be charged, then I got forgetful Tongue I hate running out of yarn, but hopefully I can make up for it on the trim.

The shrug laid out (haven't seamed the shoulders yet):

A better representation of the colours:

And the fancy multicolour yarn for finishing it off:

Thank You mynta for asking me to follow! I'm new here, and my english is helped by google, so be indulgent! @;)

What a lovely idea to show the different ways to crochet the same pattern! Wonderful works You all did!

Well...my swirl is a bit different from Yours...I'm a self tought crocheter, completely unable to read patterns! Most of the times I just start to make something and it "teaches itself". I've always been in love with geometric designs, so I decided to make a swirl for fun...and it bacame a vest! I closed it with a decorated safety pin bought in a marketplace in Firenze (Florence, Italy). I hope You will like it!
For more photos of the same vest: http://www.flickr.com/photos/babukatorium/sets/72157623444602065/

Wow, Babukatorium!!! That looks great! I went to look at your flickr pictures, and ALL your crochet vests are beautiful! I like how you say that your crochet "teaches itself."

I'm glad you like mine, Mynta Cheesy My boyfriend was very confused by it Tongue How did the vest for your daughter turn out?

Thank You so much Alexus1325! I'm really happy that You like my works! @;) ...Every pattern-free project has it's own identity, I think. They have to tell me what/how they want to become!  Wink

Quick question. How do you determine what size you need? How do the small and large sizes correspond to American clothing sizes.
