A couple of weeks ago I put up my hand to test-crochet a cardigan for a fellow Raveller.
This was a terrific crochet pattern. There’s enough variation in the lace repeat to keep it interesting, yet it’s not complicated or difficult either as there is minimal shaping. A very enjoyable crochet!
I crocheted the 6-8 size, and as Clare is a petite 9 year old it fits her fine. The yarn is Bendigo Woollen Mills Silk Supreme in Silky Plum, and this took one and a quarter of the big Bendi balls.
This took ten days of social crochet time. Quite quick, I thought! I made two linked buttons as a closure, so Clare can place them wherever she likes along the front.
