My First Crocheted Cardigan!

I've made several knitted garments before, but had never crocheted one.  I only started crocheting a few years ago, so I'm just now feeling confident enough to do it.

I chose Bernat's "On the Lace" Cardigan, made with Bernat Satin Sparkle yarn in the color "Twilight".
Here's my finished cardigan!

This is lovely. It looks perfect on you!

I love being able to knit and crochet, it's the best of both worlds. :)

Blessings always

It's lovely, and looks good on you. I like the way you're wearing your hair now, too!

Shandeh said...

Thank you both for the kind comments! I'm very proud of this cardigan. :)

Wow! Great job and it looks great on you. I think you'll get a lot of use out of it. Never crocheted a garment either - might have to give it a try :)

Oh it's wonderful! I keep meaning to make myself a cardigan, but I keep thinking, no, I need to finish this blanket first! ~Katy

Thank you Christina and Katy!
I hope to hear about your cardigans soon. :)

Your cardigan is beautiful. It's great to be competent at both knit and crochet. Well done you.

Thanks Kerri! I am SO GLAD that I have finally figured out how to crochet. Now, I'm able to make plans to knit or crochet whatever I see in the latest craft magazines. :)
