|My finished sweater!|
|Close up of the lace pattern|
I used some yarn that I had in my stash, Sirdar Country style. This is a wool acrylic blend which I bought from Abakhan at a bargain price of £12.95 for 12 balls! It took approximatley 8 balls to make (I made the largest size). The yarn is a lovely purple colour which washes well!!
Once complete, the pattern says to steam block it - new for me! I used a steam iron and the way the yarn changed was very exciting.
I have worn my sweater a couple of times and it has been admired by many people. All in all, I really enjoyed crocheting it and am looking forward to tackling my next sweater pattern.
