For Mom

I came across this pattern which I thought looked pretty cool. It's a combination of a cardigan and wrap and I thought it looked nice and cozy. I also thought it would make a nice gift so I decided to make it for Mother's Day. I just finished it this past weekend; what do you think?


I still need to finish weaving in stray yarn ends and do a little blocking for shape. I don't think it will need much, but I'm thinking about using a little steam on the front panels to bring out the stitch detail a little more. I'm really pleased with it. I love the way it drapes and I think it will be cozy without being too heavy. And hopefully there will be a little time for her to enjoy it before the weather gets too warm

Oh McB it is absolutely beautiful. Send CMS the pattern. I would love one and she crochets beautifully. I bet I could ask her to make me one, when she finishes her other 600 things to do this month. :-)

OH - nope. Mom is computer illiterate. She doesn't do technology.
