Iíve been crocheting off and on for about 17 years but only attempted a sweater this month. I found the pattern on Pinterest: https://pin.it/cg32uqv2tjogif. I used Yarn Bee (Hobby Lobbyís brand) ďBreathe Deep.Ē Itís a very soft worsted weight yarn but I noticed too late that itís hand wash only.  Angry

Anyway, hereís some pictures:






Itís half-double crochet.


Iím super proud of this! Thanks for looking!

I worked on it for a little over 2 weeks, but not every day.

I am totally envious of your ambition and determination. I've always thought about making a sweater but have yet to bite the bullet. It seems very daunting. You deserve to be proud of it. Great job!


If I did this I could see myself wearing it every day with a sign on my back that said, I MADE THIS!  Wink

It looks great, you did an excellent job!
I have been thinking about making a sweater for myself for ages but keep chickening out. I've done baby ones but not "giant grown up" ones lol but I finally made an adult sweater in knit so I think the crochet top is on the horizon.

Well done!
