The Winterberry Sweater gives you the best of all four worlds! I had a blast designing this sweater, which may or may not be the last in her collection (See Winterberry Slouch Crochet Pattern and Winterberry Infinity Crochet Pattern). Working with the honeycomb stitch and designing from the top-down, I can honestly say it was a task figuring out the numbers and increases. But once it hit me….it HIT me!
At first I was unsure on how well the design would work. Would it fit the way I imagined? Would I love it when it's done? I had all the questions running a mile a minute in my mind, but that didn’t deter me. I kept going. And the more I kept crocheting, the better it started to turn out, and the more excited I became. Every chance I got to try it on, I did a little dance. This was going to be a good one.
I wanted this sweater to be a little over-sized and cropped. I decided on a wide neck because with Spring approaching, I knew I would want something I could wear alone. A statement piece perhaps. Wearing it off the shoulder added the sassiness. The honeycombs made it edgy. The over-sized design gave me the “I’m so cool” feeling. And last but not least, throw on a pair of heels (or not) with this baby and paint the town with a classy look!
