Chevron Lace Cardigan


I've been working away on these cardigans for the last month or so and recently gave each one their first outing.  I love the chevron design: it just brings a bit of cosy, crochet glam into my winter wardrobe.

I used DK acrylic wool (nice and practical) and this pattern by milobo on Ravelry.  It's seamless, which I didn't believe until I actually tried and you basically just work from the top down for as long as you like meaning that you could make a wee bolero if you fancied.


Here's me mastering the art of the selfie in poor light.  Now you see why I'll never be a fashion blogger!

What have you made recently?


Linking up with Handmade Harbour for Handmade Monday today.  Head over to see other bloggers' recent craft projects.

  2. Looks great!. I'm always looking for crochet garment patterns that are too granny if you know what I mean.

  3. Beautiful! I'm a recent crochet convert but I love it - these are so lovely and light, but I bet they're so warm too! Excellent work! :)

  4. Beautiful cardigans ...so glam! I'm addicted to crocheting animals but I'm too scared to do a cardie because I just don't understand how I'd get the size right but I should just grab the bull by the horns.
