I finished Madams ‘Cushy Cardi’. It only took me a couple of evenings of pretty full on crocheting. It was simple, easy to follow and I really like how it looks. Don’t look to close as there are a host of mishaps and wonky bits, and some spur of the moment improv – since I seem incapable of just following a pattern in a straightforward manner.
Its a great pattern and free as well. It goes up to a 3 but I found that a loose crochet stitch, and a few extra increases have made a pretty generous sz4. Its not overly long but that’s a matter of not getting bored (like me) and adding a few more rows.

The yarn is a cheap acrylic from the Warehouse that I bought on sale. I got a 600g ball for 10 bucks. Perfect for an experiment. This one will be her summer card for preschool. Easy to wear and easy to wash! I plan to make a few more of these! I have already started the foundation chain to do a little one for a friend who’s expecting any day now.

I had hoped for a nice photo opportunity with madam in it, but she decided modelling was not on her day planner for today. This was a close as I got to a worn pic

    I’m glad you got one with her wearing it, it looks lovely on the hanger but even better on.
