Yay! I've been learning how to crochet for the past few years, and decided to try to make a cardigan. Finished it this week!

I used Bernat Satin Sparkle (http://www.bernat.com/product.php?LGC=satinsparkle) in the color "Twilight", and their free pattern called "On the Lace Cardigan (http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=6335)".

Wonderful sweater in such a lovely stitch pattern. You certainly have learned to crochet beautifully.

So lovely Sandy! Love the design, the stitch pattern and that scalloped edge is just scrumptious! Nice job!

Beautiful! Looks great on and will be a nice color to dress up in. Good work on your first crocheted garment. Perhaps it won't be your last?

Thank you all for your kind encouragement!
I've been wanting a lacy cardigan for quite a while. Now, I want another!

Gosh, I don't know which pattern to pick. I love using Bernat patterns, because all their new designs go up to size 5X. :) I'm gonna look through their patterns and decide.

Believe it or not, I get my haircuts at Walmart Smart Style salon. Ha! I just wash it, put on hair gel, and let it dry naturally. I have very thick hair, which used to be coppery red. Now, it's gone from red to blonde to white. I hope it gets whiter, so I can pretend to be an angel! :wink: :halo:

Thank you! I'm wearing it today with a blue flowered dress, and it sets it off nicely.

great ! the dress make you more lovely, i always admire people can knitting and corcheting dress for themselves. i hope i can mke one, but i can just make very simple knitting pattern now, such as simple scarf.

With practice you'll be able to do more complicated things. You might join www.ravelry.com and look around at the patterns, find something you feel you can do and ask lots of questions here. If you've not tried knitting in the round yet, you might look for something simple to give it a try. If you want to try a pattern stitch on something small, maybe a dish cloth. Together, we can knit anything!

Thanks! It took four months, and I was working on other projects as well. It took so long, because I am a size 3x. A smaller size would go much quicker, I'm sure.
