Default My first 2 sucessful crochet chi sweaters...

I'm a crochet newbie, so they are really plain. I'm going to try to make the next one bit fancier if I can figure out how to. Green one is just out of soft yarn and the pink one is out of yarn that feels very soft & minky (don't know what kind of yarn that is). If you have any crochet patterns...please share! Thanks


Excuse the bad pics. It's hard to take pics without the kids being in the way or Star sitting still!

Awesome job on the sweaters! Your babies look so comfy in them! I tried crocheting and totally failed at it. I am learning how to knit though.

They are beautiful! The pink one looks so soft! I am impressed. I tried to learn to knit but was too impatient.

They really look good! I made some for Angel, but they get caught on his carrier, so I sew them now.

You can also check out lion brand yarn website. They have free patterns. You have to sign up, but it's cool, because they always send emails with different patterns for different things.

Great job, keep it up!

Thanks everyone! I tired to knit a long time ago but no luck. I love the pink material because it's a knit lot easier to catch in the hook than regular yarn and I finished that pink one in less than a day. I bought new yarn the other day and I'm working on a new one now but the yarn is thinner and it keeps unraveling a lot. Are some brands of yarn better than another?

I would learn to sew if I had a sewing machine. I have lots of grown out kids clothes I can reuse for fabric...they went on a growth spurt this summer. Has anyone sew by hand?
