We had so much fun at our annual Crochet-Along this year! Five weeks flew by as we moved step by step through this adorable sweater together. We covered the ins and outs of a really simple and cute top-down crochet cardigan in many different yarns. The original pattern was designed in Amazing, but people got really creative with cotton yarns for the approaching summer weather. I helped navigate people through the trickier bits like shaping the yoke, separating the sleeves from the body, attaching the front bands seamlessly, and putting the sleeves on. I think everyone’s favorite part of this sweater is that the only seams were at the end of the sleeve cuffs! In the last session, we talked blocking and weaving in ends properly…and all ended up with a unique and versatile Perfect Crochet Cardigan!
