About a week ago, @roler asked me if I’d be willing to Skype with her and walk her through an ugly sweater ornament crochet pattern. She said the pattern looked complicated. HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA! Complicated is an understatement for the pattern.
I consider myself to be an experienced/advanced crocheter. After maybe an hour of scratching my head, muttering to myself, starting and restarting the darn sweater over and over, I finally threw in the towel and called my sister into the room. @QueenHobo came in and tried to save the day.
After about another hour of her thinking she got it, realizing she didn’t, and a bunch more muttering, she finally decided she was going to rewrite the pattern. I just sat there the whole time, chatting with roler and giggling, because there wasn’t much else to do.
QueenHobo wrote the body of the pattern in a way that made sense. I cleaned up her pattern some, wrote the pattern for the arms, and then worked the pattern and took lots of photos. It is kind of based on the original pattern that roler asked for help with, but it is, in my opinion, much clearer, easier to follow… and I also may have completely lost my mind trying to read the original pattern, so maybe it’s all gibberish?
If you attempt to make this, please let me know if you have any questions. If the images are too hard to see, you can also visit my website and download the free pdf. Just scroll to the bottom of the page!
One last thing! Check out the comments below. Roler said she will post a comment to tell you how she made the hanger for her ornament. I bet she’ll even share a photo of her awesome sweater!
