Best Friend Crochet Sweater



It has been a long time since my last post. Being a first time mother has been a roller coaster ride for me so far. I spent the first year of motherhood at home and was totally focused on my darling baby boy. Every giggle and hug is so precious but it was really exhausting and any spare time that I did have I spent catching up on sleep. Crochet was really not my priority. But I missed it.

Then after a year at home I went back to work full time and my son went to day care. That was 3 months ago. Since then I have been balancing work and home life and that has been a very creative activity in itself. To be fair I have had the daily commute as time when I could have done some crochet but I was away from yarn for so long that I just could not get my groove back.

I did have one or two projects that I had started but they were sweaters and so too big to finish in one sitting and I was unable to carve regular crochet periods for various reasons. I am lucky enough to have a very helpful and hands on husband and he made it possible for  me to get some time to finally finish this sweater.

It is a gift for my sons' first real friend whom he has known since he was 4 months old. It was meant to be a birthday gift but I could not finish it in time. It took me 3 months but its finally done!

So I proudly present, The Best Friend Sweater:








Pattern Used: Bernat Cozy Crochet Hoodie (left out the pockets and hoodie as I felt it looked more elegant without them)
Yarn Used: Hayfield Bonus DK Azure


Pattern review: The pattern is not a very complicated one and is written well. So it was easy to get going with it. The part about the buttons is the only part where I had a little difficulty but the double breast look is really worth the trouble.

Yarn review: The yarn is smooth and easy to crochet with and has good stitch definition.
