Several people have commented how this yarn is a dream to work with. I agree! Soft to the touch, this yarn still amazes me how it makes its own stripes. Yes, the pattern is easy. I have only crocheted one other sweater (6 years ago, a different baby sweater with a hat), so this is still fairly new to me. I usually crochet doilies, not garments, and I was a bit nervous about starting this sweater. The pattern is made up mostly of HDC (half-double crochet) stitches and it goes along quickly.
Making this sweater has inspired me to want to make bigger and more complex patterns. Crazy me, it's not like I need another project added to everything else in my busy life! Jessica brought over some beautiful burgundy-colored yarn which will be used for my next project...a sweater for her, if I ever finish this baby sweater. Be patient with me, Jess. Remember, I'm a slow crocheter.
