Worth the wait

Finally, a mere 3 years and 1 month after starting my Coral Crochet Cardigan... it's finished! I've named it "Vintage" for obvious reasons.

The front.. showing off all the details..

The back.. showing off the great fit..

And the front again in closer detail..

This is my own design using my
Knitware Sweaters program. I fudged a knitting pattern from it 3 years ago, but the program now does actually produce crochet patterns too!

I finished it off with an edging from a Harmony crochet book that I found in my local library, and
crocheted some buttons in the same yarn.

I wore it today to the Beatties Knit Chat and it's really lovely to wear, although I did feel that I should have been wearing a hat and going to a wedding.. ;-)

Now to find a top that looks better with it..!

This means that none of my UFOs are more than 3 months old!!! Woohooo!

I'm impressed - well done!

What a great jacket; and the colour really suits you!

I'm terribly impressed it is your own design.

Well done Steph! The sweater is beautiful, and I certainly wish I could say all my UFO's are younger than 3 months. :)
