Since the Fall Interweave Crochet preview is now out, I can finally post my own pictures. I grabbed these snapshots in a hurry as I rushed to get this sweater mailed in under the wire this spring.

Kim, who does not love having her picture taken (but who was the only neighbor home and a PERFECT fit for the sweater!) agreed to let me take them. Thank you, Kim!

The sweater is crocheted in Lorna’s Laces Green Line DK. It’s a hand-dyed organic merino, and I would call it a chubby dk as it is really almost worsted. It was wonderful to work with–both I and Carol, my star crocheter on this project liked working with it too, I think. This is one sweater I’ve had to part with that I will very likely make again for myself. I’m considering teaching it as a follow-up class to the beginning crochet I’ll be teaching at The Net Loft over the next couple of weeks.

    I like your pictures better than the magazine’s!!! The sweater looks great. Did you use that “linked” double crochet stitch again for the body of the sweater?
