Sometimes, a pattern calls for you to turn your work after every round. While it’s seemingly easy enough not to forget if you’ve turned or not, the situation becomes a little less clear when it’s time for you to pick up your work again after you’ve put in on hold for a while. This occurs in particular when it’s time to add the sleeves on a circular yoke or raglan sweater which is worked in turned rounds.
Have you ever worked on a crochet project before, set it aside for a while, only to completely forget what hook size you used on it? Or maybe you’ve been swatching for a new pattern test and can’t remember which hook size you meet gauge with?
You are not alone. I used to write the hook size for my projects and swatches on small pieces of paper and attach those to the fabric, but you know how it goes with disposable pieces of paper. They get lost and they’re also not very pretty to look at.
Enter, your DIY set of crochet hook sizes! If you’re into crafts like I am, you probably already have all the supplies needed just sitting in your arsenal.
This batwing sweater will make you feel both comfortable, and effortlessly elegant. With loads of positive ease at the bust, it provides warmth and comfort, and the stretchy ribbing hugs your hips and wrists, keeping everything in place. All the while the alpine stitch pattern works its magic and embraces you in waves upon waves of three-dimensional texture. The printable PDF pattern includes clear instructions and a bunch of tips & tricks and tutorial photos, leaving no guesswork for you. It also comes with a helpful row tracker, laying out every single row and stitch count for each size separately. This way you can easily check your stitch count and track your progress at any time.
