Hi Carleen, My fingers are itching to start making the sweater. How large are each of your squares? Thank you for the wonderful idea.
Beautiful! I like to make up my own patterns for crocheting too. That's the only way my mom knew how! She taught me. I consider it a talent!
Hi,I really love the idea to make a sweater set out of granny squares.My problem is understanding the instructions you gave on how to put it all together,because some of the instructions just are not quite clear.If you would'nt mind could you re-word the way the instructions are given,and maybe have a little more detail on how to put the sleeves together? Thank you! I would like to try and make this for a new neice of mine!
