My First Crocheted Garment!
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!

Shandeh - On the Lace Cardigan by Shandeh, on Flickr
I used Bernat Satin Sparkle in the color "Twilight", and their free pattern called "On the Lace Cardigan".

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.

Thank you!
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! :halo:
