First: I have been unable to find our snowflake decorations in the attic so do I have to make dozens all over again? Also am teaching a Christmas themed crochet class at work next week and this is one of the projects for that. From email@example.com or see the side bar for the link. She provides a superb photographed step by step tutorial for these.
This is the second sleeve- half back. I have completed the first sleeve and half back. I have adapted the pattern slightly to 4 and 2 row repeats alternating so I can carry the yarn up the side rather than sew in all those ends!!! But this created a directionality in the fabric so I had to do the sleeves and back in 2 halves to be joined at centre back to keep the sleeves looking the same.
Now I'm having doubts as it could be a bit boring to do. Men's jumpers are so Huge?!
And I won't have enough so have to find a complimentary navy yarn....There was SMC in beige but when I brought it home, same yarn but in beige, he said no to stripes. Crochet Today ( USA magazine see it at www.crochetoday.com) in their latest issue have a great cabled man's jumper pattern so maybe I'll try to adapt that to this yarn?!!! But it isn't in the UK shops yet.
Voila and now I'm happily wearing it again in this COLD BRRRRRR weather.
