One Down & How Many To Go?

I finished my Julia Cardigan by Designs by Donna. I really like it and plan to wear it out this weekend. I went to JoAnn's yesterday looking for buttons and some lace to make a sash. I settled on some simple pearlized 19mm buttons and decided to make my own sash in the remaining blue yarn. I crocheted the sash using the Front Cross Stitch and trimmed using a picot edging on the bottom only. It's nice and stretchy and turned out really well. You may also notice that I shortened the sleeves to a 3/4 inch style. I also decreased the collar area to form a higher collar line and added 3 extra shells to get a pleated look in the back . It fits my style better with these adjustments. Enjoy!

Kamika, you did a great job on this little number! Very cute. I plan to make myself a crocheted shrug after I finish my daughter's halter. Take care.

Thanks for all of the comments on my latest FO. That was my first time using DMC embroidery thread for a knitting project! I think they sell a thicker size, check out their website. Yeah, the yarn called for in the pattern was a little too much for me, and I was glad to use something from my stash. (I'm cheap when it comes to buying yarn!)
