    Short and Sweet

    short and sweet

    Surprising.


    Who would have thought? not me... For sure!

    But this is living proof I was wrong. I always thought the thinner the yarn, the better. But here, I must recon it is not true. My version in a thinner yarn is less attractive than the thicker original.

    You live, you learn.

    I consider my version of short and sweet however satisfactory .

     

     

    STATS :

  • Pattern : Short and Sweet, bolero by Angela 'La vonne' Best, started 20 july 2007 finished 04 august 2007 (15 hours of work I think)
  • Stitches :chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet, and the best part : back post and front post double crochet (see video here), seed stitch.
  • Crochet hook : a definitely too small US size D (3mm)
  • Yarn : almost 6 balls of Cotton, brand Pernelle, reference “tropique”, color light pink (not the best choice, maybe), 140 yds for 1 oz 3/4, to be used with a 4,5mm hook.
  • Design : no sew cardigan (my version).
  • Level : Intermediate (I tried to make it less square shape and more curve friendly).

    I did a few more changes in the original design

    Something sweet

    I’m working of this project, a bolero by Angela Best, called “La vonne” (French descent maybe) and featured inThe Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller.
    I haven’t bought the book (yet, still holding strong to keep my word) and I’m following the instructions Angela gives on her blog. They’re not complete but as I usually don’t comply to yarn and sizing instructions in patterns, I won’t miss them here…

    I’ve used up two balls of yarn and I’m quite satisfied with the result. I intend to shape the armhole differently, to make room for my “curves", and, appart from a reading mistake I’ll do with because I don’t want to frog the back (that’s what you get when you read graphs at 2 o’clock in the morning), this will be the only alteration of the pattern I’ll make.



    Pics with 1 and 2 yarn balls used up, and the few first centimeters used as a head-band :



    STATS :

  • Pattern : Short and Sweet, bolero by Angela ‘La vonne’ Best
  • Stitches : chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet, and the best part : back post and front post double crochet (see video here).
  • Crochet hook : Metric size 3 mm, US size D, maybe too small though…
  • Yarn : Cotton, brand Pernelle, reference “tropique”, color light pink, 140 yds for 1 oz 3/4, to be used with a 4,5mm hook.
  • Design : It’s worked in one piece, no seams : you cut the yarn and crochet each one of the pieces where they belong and that’s it… Did I mention I just love no-sew garments?
  • I think I’ll make another one, with a bigger hook, in black silky ribbon to offer to my sister for Xmas.

  • Crocheted!

  • Is it knitted? Nope! Crocheted! Crochet isn't just for grannies, doilies and floppy funky scarves. I am - fairly - under 50, I have a crochet hook and a yarn ball handy in my purse and I like decorating my shoulders better than my sofa.
