Boyfriend Cardigan via Inside Crochet

After browsing for crochet publications that actually made modern pieces to wear, this is the first pattern that caught my eye and got me hooked on the publication itself. This came from Inside Crochet Issue 42 and I instantly just fell in love. This was the first piece of actual clothing I ever tried to crochet. I figured with the simple shape it would be an easy start. I just loved the rainbow colors that it was featured in and I didn’t mess with altering with that a bit. I used Knit Picks Cotlin  yarn for this project. I will admit that I had to do some major adjustments to the sleeve length because they ended up extremely long on me so I think I ended up shortening them by nearly 11 rows all together. All together I am pleased with this and wore it this past spring/summer quite a few times. Get yourself over to Inside Crochet and see what it is about, caution to the US readers as the terminology is UK so some conversions will be necessary but aren’t hard to do.
