Following on from my first effort of the little sun dress last week, I decided to try out the crocheted jacket / cardigan pattern by the same people at DROPS Design. The pattern can be found HERE.
Again it's translted from Norwegian so the pattern was slightly tricky to follow in places, but having cracked the dress pattern, this one was written in the same style and so was a bit quicker to decipher.
Firstly, base pieces of front left panel, front right panel, two sleeves and back panel were made.
Mitten was helping with the photography as usual.
Here are the pieces lined up to show how they will fit together.
From here the pieces were all crocheted together and then the crocheting continued upwards towards the collar, with decreases in each row to shape the shoulders.
Lacey detail was added round the collar and cuffs to give it a pretty finished and finally some buttons were sewn on the front.
And here is it all finished!
I feel I'm now getting the hang of following clothing patterns and I think I'm now ready to up-scale and try my hand at something that I can wear so I am now on the hunt for a suitable pattern!
