Thank you so much everyone! *blush*

-what kind of yarn? (pretty color, it looks great even if it's acrylic!)
-size hook?
-how long did it take?
The yarn is not a from a well known brand. Because it's called Markoma Marlies (which is a dutch girlsname) i think it's only sold in the Netherlands. But it says on the label it's 85%acryl and 15%mohair and 50g=150meters. I used a 6mm hook. The whole thing took maybe a month all together but I had to work and study too and I put it aside for quite some time because as I said the weather was getting better and I had more interest in summery tops Smiley

and that button is so lovely!

Thank you! The button actually is a brooch (i love brooches!) but sadly I lost it during queensday so i have to find another one Sad

Just one question I don't understand how to do the sleeves. The chain 10in. part. That part's really confusing.
I made a sketch of what the original pattern looks like. I hope you can see how this chain 10in. works. It puzzled me at first too!


And while I was at it I drew a picture of how it looked the way I did it (hope it makes sense):

I can't even tell you how cool that is!   Shocked

Thanks for posting pictures, Suz_Anne.  I looked at your gallery and you have made some really nice things.  the yarns make them stand out even more.

How much yarn did it take for the bed jacket?  (I hope the quesion hasn't already been answered.)

Thanks! I can't remember exactly but i think 9 50g skeins.

Oh man, that is like one of the coolest crocheted things I've seen.  That is so classy.  I hope to make one someday, when I have learned more.  I only know single and double, so I think it'll be a while.  *sigh.

Don't be too discouraged! Crochet stitches are very easy to pick up. www.stitchguide.com is a great resource, hope that helps, and don't be afraid to ask us here if you are having any problems!

If you had wanted to make a splash with your first post, congratulations, you certainly have! I absolutely love your sweater. I so admire people who can veer off patterns. I'm such a chicken I always follow every stich. Can't wait to see your next project!

Girl, that's gorgeous!  Do you have any other Dutch pattern sites to share?  I checked out www.breiweb.nl from the link on your site and wow... stunning patterns!
