Starting the Mirth Cardi. Crochet project. From Interweave Crochet; Summer 2014

I have been searching for one of these circular type patterns for the longest time.  I am going to give this one a shot.  It really is beautiful.  The pattern says it is an Intermediate level.  (3 of 4).  It doesn’t look too awfully intimidating to me though.  lol

I subscribe to Interweave Crochet Magazine, and love receiving them in the mail!  It always feels like Christmas.  😀

About the pattern:

Working outward from a lacy back motif, this cardigan lasers out into a larger circle that shapes the front lapels. The completed garment is flattering on a range of shapes and sizes for a playful addition to everyone’s summer wardrobe.


FINISHED SIZE Child’s to fit 6 (8, 10, 12) years. Ladies 32-34 (36-38, 40-42, 44-46)” bust circumference. Use size that best fits cross-back measurement for best finished fit.

YARN Omega Yarns Eulali (100% mercerized cotton; 394 yd [360 m]/3½ oz [100 g]): #19 cream (adult), 3, (3, 4, 4) skeins; #31 salmon (child) 1 (2, 2, 2) skeins.

HOOK SIZE E/4 (3.5 mm); D (3 mm) for child size 6 only. Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

NOTIONS Yarn needle.

GAUGE Adult: first 5 rnds = 6″ when stretched. Child: first 4 rnds = 4″ when stretched (slightly smaller for 6 years).

Isn’t this just the most gorgeous thing???

I have cones of dark navy blue cotton mercerized yarn/thread.  I have been trying to use it up for years!  So, I am going to attempt using a portion of it on this beautiful crochet cardi.  Here is my progress.  I started it yesterday.  I only had to rip out one row so far!  lol



Humble beginnings!

Well, wish me luck.  I hope I haven’t jinxed it by posting…  🙂  I’ll keep updated on my progress…
