One for Me!


My Cardi

Comfy Cardi from Crochet Me

Designed by me , Tweaked by me for me (may be one of the only times I get to say that)

Started in January, finished lace in a few days, put it down for a long while. Then finally finished the ribbing the last few days. I'm really happy with how it came out. I made the large size in the chest and small size in the arms. Plus I shortened it to elbow length. All the details of that are on my blog here. Pretty amazed that I finally have something for me! Can't wait to wear it, too bad it was 70 here yesterday, not the best weather for alpaca; but I am sure it will be cool again soon.

Details:
Yarn: elann.com, Pure Alpaca Fina, 5 skeins! (I know- totally a steal! A cute cardi and it didn't cost much at all!)

Hook: F Clover Hook

Notions: Large Mission Falls Button

Your cardi is incredibly lovely, and it looks great on you. I'm even more inspired now than I was the first time I saw it in the book!
