The giant sweater of pinkness!

So this sweater was an event - it feels like it took FOREVER!

I made mistakes:

It is supposed to be a hexagon not a pentagon… I had to completely redo one half

and then I got the size wrong…

and had to frog 6 INCHES off each side.

Here it is seamed up but no pockets or finishing

and here it is ON

front

back

side

sleeves (this picture is the closest to the right color)

And I used the Day Date Cardigan pattern from Make & Do Crew. My yarn weight was a little heavy for the original pattern which contributed to the overall size issue. I used Caron Simply Soft in Neon Pink.

I love that pattern, crochet yeah? Easy enough for a rank beginner who can granny square you think?

And it is SO SO pink.

YES! the pattern is pretty meditative. Same rows over and over. If you can double crochet and join rounds, you can do it!!

Great sweater!
The last time I crocheted, the triangle shawl pattern turned into a weird, 18-pointed spiderwebby monstrosity. It was pretty cool, but not what I was aiming for.

I’m afraid to think what I’d do to this!

That would have hit the WIP bin at my house and probably have never seen the light of day again. So I’m extra impressed by your perseverance! AND it looks fantastic!
