I know it's not Friday (my designated day for updating my current crochet project) but I am excited to share 'Plan B - the new Hanabira' crochet cardigan project. I think, I'm back on track ! You can read background on the project here.
To restart , I swatched 4 different options for the fabric and eventually decided on this one :
I've gone for a 6mm crochet hook and Merino sock yarn. The colour is a lovely Pistachio Green and very soft. Compared to my previous version of the Hanabira which used a linen mix, the yarn is so easy to work. I'm confident, at the moment !, this plan will work out and eventually - I will have my cardigan. I'm begining to enjoy the challenge again.
So far, I've created the Foundation Chain and organised the neckline markers for the pattern increases :
As per the last plan, I'm hoping to crochet a little everyday and will update each Friday showing my progress.
Wish me luck !
Thanks for calling in today.
