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!

Love the edging. Lucky teacher! It always amazes me how quickly you finish projects that would stall out at this house after just a day or so. I really admire your tenaciousness and skill.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

How wonderful of you to have gifted this to your son's teacher. She must be a truly remarkable person. Beautiful work!

I truly cannot say enough for her. Our school no longer has talented and gifted programs, and my son is very talented in math. She and I had talked about his math abilities since my daughter had been in her class 2 years before. His 2nd grade teacher really frustrated me in that he didn't push my son. Our school is great, but has a lot of struggling students which we cater to. His current teacher wants the best for all students, and has worked it out with the 4th grade math teacher for my son to go to 4th grade for math 2x a week for enrichment! There is nothing in the world that can show my appreciation for her. She is remarkable!
