Crochet jumper

I've recently started making my first crocheted garment! One of my aims for myself for this year was to make 20 things and I really want to try and make some things to wear, I've also finished knitting a very simple cowl but I don't think it really counts.

As my really rather dark pictures show all I have managed to create so far is a rather lacy looking collar. Hopefully this will eventually become this chevron jumper . I don't think I'm going to attempt stripes, rather I'll stick with this greenish, yellowish beigey colour for as long as I can and then switch to a navy. I'm quite pleased to be using up some Sirdar Baby Bamboo that I bought for my ripple blanket but just wasn't really the right colour.
We'll see how far I get!


  1. Looks good already! Looking forward to see how it turns out in the end! i drean about amking a jumper for myself but so far i havent dared... sometime this year!
    take care, Anne
