Blanket sweater in stripes

Blanket sweater in stripes with pink and violet



This is my first big crochet project. It took me a while, but I can tell you I know this pattern now.

I love learning watching video tutorials. I don’t need words just a movie with all the moves.

Here is a youtube video with Moss stitch. This girl is doing a great job explaining this stitch.

Before seeing this video I thought that this stitch is very difficult, but now I can say is very easy.

I saw this pattern at Mama in a stitch and I fell in love with it. I bookmark it a year ago and I told myself I am gone do it someday. That day arrived. After watching the youtube video I knew I can do this blanket sweater.

Her website is an inspiration. Her sweater inspired me. I liked the moss stitch for this project and also how simple the sweater was. Imagine doing a rectangle and then joining some corners.

Looks more complicated that it is.

Because I had a few Catania skeins in different colors I choose to make it with it and order some more to be able to finish it.
