I’ve been trying to work on a crocheted circular jacket for my mother-in-law’s friend. She purchased the yarn and pattern from Mary Maxim and just needed someone to make it for her. I can get up to a certain point with it and then the calculations get off somehow. I haven’t given up but it’s requiring an amount of patience that even a laid back person like myself is finding difficult to maintain. Anyway, I went on Ravelry to see if anyone else had made it. Thankfully there is so I asked for some guidance. Only one person responded and suggested also trying the Ring Around the Rosie sweater from The Lavendar Chair. Her recommendation was because its just as cute, similar and much easier. I checked it out right away and decided I liked it enough to try.
Right off I liked that this pattern uses worsted weight. I had more than enough of that on hand. I decided to use Red Heart With Love in color Minty. I think it was perfect for this project. I used my favorite I/5.5mm hook. I believe this would be about a size 2T. There is an addition to the pattern to add sleeves but I can’t decide. I also can’t decide if I want to add a button. What do you think? Leave me a comment with your suggestion for sleeves and a button.
P.S. I think I’ll submit this to our County Fair in July. What do you think?
