An Experiment

Sorry that I have been out of touch. My mother passed away and I haven't had much time to devote to my online pursuits. But I do have this to share.

Some time ago, I found THIS baby pattern on the blog of an online friend which was translated from the original Portuguese. I planned on making the sweater but had no baby to make it for. So I thought about it and wondered how it would look in an adult size. So I found a pound of mill ends in a craft store, upped the hook size to a J  and decided to give it a try. This is the result.......

Its about a small/medium size and although it wouldn't fit me, I knew it would fit my mother. But she didn't live long enough to wear it. So I brought it home and will try to find someone else that can use it. I do plan on trying to enlarge the pattern even more so I can make one for myself. But if you are a small sized lady or you know a young girl that might like this, do try it. You can adjust the length of the body and sleeves very easily.

If you feel adventurous, you could get some bulky yarn, an M hook and try the pattern. It should give you a size Large. :)

Crochet, Away!
