OK: time to reveal the reverse gussets ..

You may/may not recall my whingeing how no pattern fits me on account of my distinct pear-shape, yes ? (or no ?) – in this post ..

So I finally got ’round to it and finished off my version of the Fiber Spider’s double-hexagon pattern for a granny-stitch cardi, complete with said reverse gussets. These, I think you won’t have difficulty in believing, are NOT in his pattern !

Here you can view the gussets in all their weird glory:

(Well, you try crocheting short rows !)

I’m considering trying to get hold of those little double grab thingies to attach: yes or no ?

And I fear my total lack of photographic ability is once more at the fore with the photo hereunder:

I have NO IDEA how to take a selfie with my phone. Yesyes, I know you can see that for yourselves: shut up !

The cardi actually goes the whole way ’round my (_|_) and could be done up, had it any buttons (or little double grab thingies). Wonders will never cease !

  1. My wonderfully clever friend, you are too kind. XO !
    I believe if I can just find the manual for the phone, I might be able to delay the shutter a bit – which oughta help. :D
    P.S. I see Vogue Knitting thinks as highly of you ass you deserve; for there you are again in August. Complimenti bella !


      1. Good lord, no I haven’t got anywhere near those. Still on my quest to make some frogs for “Three Speckled Frogs” school resources that I’ve been trying to do since, oh I don’t know, some time last century? Feels like it…

    1. Yay, me ! :D I like that, Marilyn – thank-you !
      But they really do need to be clipped together; and the only shop in this burg that stocks things like that is not on any bus route. How dickheaded of them.
      Ah well, maybe I can crochet something(s) instead.

  2. My StarTrack driver (a company contracted by Australia Post) is so familiar with coming to my place that he reckons he’s worn his own track. It’s just that I kind of feel the need to match ’em against the cardi. You know: hold them over those little bumps .. But mebbe yer right ..


Go on - you can say it. :)
