The Weeks go Marching By

2014 is proving to be a very busy year for me, March (and National Crochet Month) is just around the corner. I have lots of exciting projects going on that I can’t quite reveal yet. Though I can show your my most recently published design.

My “Convertible Cardigan” can be found in the April 2014 issue of Crochet World Magazine. This was a cardigan that I made for myself to wear last summer at the TNNA show in Columbus, Ohio.

Of course I picked a hot pink colorway, since this was for my own wardrobe. The editors liked the color so much that they used my original cardigan for the photo shoot. Worked in Tahki Cotton Classic Lite it is a great layer for wearing in air-conditioned venues, though right now on my mountain I can’t really envision a need for air-conditioning.

The sweater is back with me now and if you come to TNNA in May or the Knit & Crochet Show in July you may spot me wearing this cardigan.

Be sure to stop by again often in March. I’ll have lots of fun blog posts to share with all my wonderful readers to celebrate NatCroMo, including a post on the 15th as part of the Crochetville’s 2014 National Crochet Month Designer Blog Tour.

  1. I think I may just need to get my hands on Crochet World for your pattern – it’s lovely!

  2. I have been crocheting for 50 years and I can’t believe I can’t figure this pattern out. I’m ok till I get to row 8-18. My increases r all onone side. This is the order of rows: 1,2,3,4 (2),5(3),6,7,6,7,6,7,6,7 ect. Is this correct?

    • Yes, those row numbers are correct. And you should only have increases on one side. Side 1 works one half of the upper back and that shoulder then goes into the sleeve. Side 2 is worked off the opposite side of your beginning foundation and completes the other half and 2nd sleeve. Look at the lower left hand picture in the magazine that shows the cardigan from the back and you can see the center back foundation.

      This is a very different garment construction than most folks are used to, but you will love the way the fabric drapes with the curves of the body once your project is finished.

      I’m so excited for you to have found a crocheting challenge after 50 years of crocheting. It’s always fun to learn something new in a beloved craft.
