My First Crocheted Garment

Years ago crochet to me was just fancy doilies.

Since starting the class I have got into making small stuffed toys.

So I thought I best attempt my first garment.

I am doing a Woman's Cardigan as found in the Rowan Crochet Workshop Book.



Here's the beginning. I'm doing it in Rowan "4ply Soft" wool and it is certainly living up to its name as it is lovely and soft.

This makes a big change for me as up to now I have mainly crocheted in cotton which gives a much firmer fabric feel.

Lovely pattern and I like the colour you've chosen too. I think the biggest garment I've crocheted was a poncho for my daughter, and that was way back in the 70s when they were all the rage. I certainly never tackled a cardigan ... can't wait to see how yours turns out. Elizabeth xx
