Cords & Cables Crochet
Cardigan by Maureen Mason-Jamieson
Yarn: Shelridge Farm Soft Touch DKW
Completed: September 17 2011.
||More front views -- with the
top closed and open. Note that it's asymmetric, and there is only
one pocket. (But, there is a pocket!).
|Back views. The picture
on the left captures the colour really well.
|Detail -- the pocket, with its edging; and the collar.
|Detail -- chain & single crochet button loop; cuff (same
colour progression as collar!).
|Alternative perspectives -- artsy shot up the front, and the
underside of the crochet front.
|On the left -- trial #1. I thought I was going great
guns, only to realize I was crocheting backwards, not doing reverse
crochet. Huh? Click the picture to see the issue.
On the right -- I pulled out almost 1/2 of the first sleeve when I realized I'd put the shoulder strap on the wrong end of the sleeve. I balled each bit of yarn, and labeled it with the row number, to re-use it in the re-construction.
|Wrong and right -- shoulder strap at the cuff end of the
sleeve -- but it makes such a neat progression from the narrowing to
the cuff! And, look how much I had to rip out to fix the
problem. On the right -- all those bits re-crocheted and the
shoulder strap on the correct end of the sleeve.
