These sweater and jump suit are the very first clothes I  have knitted. This was 20 years ago. When yarn began to attract me. You may feel that attraction yourself. You walk innocently on a sidewalk when you realise you just passed a yarn store. Your feet are directing you to the entrance even before you made a conscious decision to enter. Once inside, you see and touch the sweetest and softest yarn. And while going through the magazines you find the perfect pattern for that yarn!

Red and Pink Sweet Girl Sweater

sweet-girl-sweater-crochet-3

This is my second Sweet Girl Sweater. I used Caron Simply Soft 100% acrylic and a 4.5 mm hook. This yarn is very, very soft. So soft that it is a real pleasure to crochet with it. The first Sweet Girl Sweater I have made was dark beige with pink details. I wanted to see how this pattern looks with a darker color and I must say that I love it in red with pink details.

I have added this pattern in my Craftsy Pattern Store, for free, on September 18, 2014, and it was downloaded 422 times. I must not be the only one who likes it!

Thank you for your visit!

Sweet Girl Sweater

Sweet Girl Sweater - Crochet

Sweet Girl Sweater – Crochet

A sweater to keep a little girl warm. The little girl is my niece and the sweater was a birthday present. To go with the quilt I made, Butterflies in the Garden.

I chose a silky medium-size yarn, and a medium crochet hook (4.5 mm). I didn’t follow a pattern as I had a definite idea in my mind: scallops, contrasting borders and hardanger-like details. And, as fate was on my side, the colors were in perfect harmony with the Butterflies in the Garden quilt.

I started with a chain in what we call in French vieux rose (old pink). I love that particular pink. It is soft to the eyes and makes me think of vintage tea cups and saucers … aromatic tea, pretty sandwiches, decadent little desserts…

The sweater is made of rows of double crochet and a few rows of simple crochet. The borders are made last with scallops. All parts are rectangles. Fast, easy, pink and girlie!
