Trying something new

Just because you have no idea what it is don’t mean it’s no good, you know. [grin]

I’m crocheting a cardigan in a top-down pattern ! – first time for top-down, ever ! Of course, a knitted top-down cardi would be the ultimate challenge (yesyes Anna – I hear you saying “Not for some !” and sniffing); but that’s for STITDF. Work that one out if you can.

(Also, I am using yarn left over from a unsuccessful project. Well, in truth it wasn’t actually unsuccessful: I just totally lost interest in it. Wait till you see the third colour ! – and yes, I’m determined to use them all.)

This is a pattern from Angela at Little Monkeys Design, and I was going to begin it roughly six months ago; but I was distracted by The Shawl. Sighh ..

One of two current WIPs. T’other one is purely practical, and not for showing. Pardon ? No, it isn’t a toilet-paper cosy !

Have finally found home: in my ... ahh ... later years. With no family within coo-ee and no assets, I'm in a wonderful and totally independent unit within the auspices of a celebrated aged care organization. Idea is that I have two 'houses' I can move into were I to become cerebrally challenged: but it's my firm intention not to. :D P.S. I have no idea how I got to this number of years: I was young only last week ..

  1. Ah ! – glad you spotted ’em. I’ve been watching lots of Youchoob videos on this very topic, because there are several ways of making it – the star stitch.
    The one I used is detailed in a video on Angela’s site; and frankly I think it looks better than the others I’ve seen- mostly because it edges better.


    1. I think it’s the lighter shades, Angela. And btw ! – I’ve looked at about four different ways of making the star stitch, and yours is by far the best ! Thank-you ! :D


Go on - you can say it. :)
