Happy Friday! Can you believe September is almost over already? The last couple of months have really zipped by for me, which is nice, considering how exceptionally interesting 2020 has been thus far. We're just about 75% of the way through this crazy year though, so give yourself a high five for me!
One of the things that has been on my hooking bucket list for a long time has been to crochet me a sweater. I bought a really cute pattern a few months ago, and have been itching for the free time to make it, but haven't yet had the chance. As luck would have it though, the designer of that pattern came up with a fabulous new sweater pattern and chose me as one of her testers. Having a deadline really helped me to be able to sit down and make me a sweater, and I am so thrilled with the result!
My talented daughter styled my hair and took the photos. Too bad she couldn't do anything about my RBF, hahaha!
Stephanie, the designer, thought of everything for this pattern. There are even thumb holes on the sleeves!
AND it has an optional hood! (And I have a "sweater boner" in this picture, but we can overlook that) This sweater is called the Bayside Sweater, and I have included a link to the pattern in this week's roundup, so keep scrolling!
In celebration of my first sweater, Part Two of the Fabulous Fall Fashion Crochet Pattern Roundup is all about sweaters! Here are some of my favorite designs from a bunch of my yarny friends! I hope you will share pictures of your finished (or even in-progress) sweaters with me either on Facebook, Instagram or by sending me an email!
I hope that this list of patterns brought you half as much excitement as it brought me.I love being able to share patterns with you, and I hope you will share photos of your work with me! And as a bonus for you if you've taken the time to read this whole post, here's a blooper photo from my Bayside Sweater photoshoot!
Make sure you are subscribed to the Straight Awesome newsletter, and you bookmark this site, because the Fabulous Fall Fashion roundup isn't over yet! I have more patterns to share with you next week, and new designs of my own coming later in October, so stay tuned!
Until next time,
