Hi ... I love my products,

Hi ... I love my products, and I always hooked them with you. I just wanted to ask if you did not plan to hook this sweater? She is so very nice and I really want to hook him up. Thanks a lot for the answer

Hi Veronika,

Hi Veronika,
I work on knit slippers now. After that project, I'll crochet something similar. Happy crochet!

Hi Veronika,

Hi Veronika,
Please visit this page http://interunet.com/crochet-sweater-pattern to see my version of the sweater. Hope you like it also. The second part will be ready soon. Happy crochet!

Interested to make this

Interested to make this project! The pattern looks very pretty. I need to decrease it as I want to try to make for my daughter first. What is the length of your foundation chain and sizes of the final piece?

Hi Victoria,

Hi Victoria,
You may look up the gauge at the top of this page. The size is adjustable because you may move ties further or closer to the center. The length (widest part) is about 40 inches. Happy crochet!
