So we have annual Christmas party with my Sunday School Class at church (the newly wed/young married couples) It's always fun to see the crazy ideas people come up with. I was determined to win this year (of course we didn't vote this time...haha) but I would have won for creativity and it definitely got attention.
I had lots of Sparkle I Love This Yarn left over from various projects. I started searching for something quick since I only had a a few days and I've never made an actual garment you sew together like a sweater. I came across the perfect pattern. Now don't get me wrong!! I ruined this awesome sweater pattern and it's on my list to make a pretty one because I actually like it!
Here is the pattern I used: Granny Shrug. It's a free and a fun pattern. It works up fast because you use a Q hook and bulky yarn! Now if you make this I recommend a lighter bulky and loose gauge or this will be a heavy sweater. I did double stranded worsted and Q 15.5 hook. It's worked in two pieces and it's a no brainer pattern once you get it going.
So are you ready to see this?
Now I didn't really plan out colors. I started with variegated and then used what I had and until I ran out so you'll notice I end on different colors. The variegated in the armpits is funny to me and didn't really think about it when I started.
Here is me modeling it. haha! So My hubby said it was awful and refused to take my picture so my almost 5 year old took some for me and well I have no head haha!
So I hope I don't offend you if you really like the sweater. It's not all that bad I suppose but you can't see it sparkling with the sparkle yarn and well it's kinda busy! So we'll just call it a tacky sweater. I really am going to make another one. The pattern is great and like I said with the right yarn in a solid and drape it will look better. So what do you think? Honest fun comments below! hehe!
