Crochet Baby Cardigan
Whew! The Crochet Baby Cardigan / sweater portion of my Crochet Along (CAL) is finally complete. Today the last video for this item was uploaded. This sweater is so cute and a little different than what you usually see. I decided to use a LeisureArts baby layette pattern for this crochet along. Each week I will be uploaded short video portions of the items. This allows everyone time to complete that portion of the instructions before moving onto the next rows/rounds. I can’t even imagine trying to film, edit and uploading the entire set in one video… Hmmm, it would be like 12 hours long.. no bueno, and not allowed by YouTube.
The pattern can be purchased from LeisureArts.com (Click here to purchase pattern) and will allow you to follow along with me. It is also a great way to learn to read patterns or at least demystify them a little if you aren’t already a pattern reader. Remember, reading patterns is just like any other skill. It is something you need to learn and not an ability you automatically know. It’s like riding a bike. You weren’t born knowing how to ride a bike, but thru lots of practice (and falling) you eventually learned. Now you can enjoy a bike ride whenever you want. ( Or circumstances allow). It’s the same with reading written patterns as well as diagrams.
I am creating a course to teach you basic crochet stitches (some advanced), how to read patterns, diagrams, etc. I am excited that soon it will be ready and available to everyone. On the topic of the crochet course, what type of things would you want to see in it? Please write it on the comments… i.e., new stitches, reading charts, working in rows/rounds, reading diagrams, etc.
I am posting the links to the videos Playlist crochet along below. Remember, you will need the pattern for it all to make sense : )
