Wow Beth. I love it! I might need that pattern. You look great in it, too.
I'm still searching for my magazine as I love how this looks. You did a beautiful job. Thanks for the layout though, that should help me if I don't find the book.
That jacket looks great and it is sure to keep you warm. Love the colour as well!
Thank you so much for the good words :-) I like the way the colors worked too.Beth
Congratulations! You have done a great job! Very nice cardigan! And the colors wonderful!
Oh, Beth, I JUST bought a granny square sweater pattern to make one for myself, after I finish the Lion Brand CAL sweater!.. I love how yours came out! It looks very nice on you, and the colors you picked are beautiful! ~tina
Really pretty and wonderfully done. The colours are beautiful.
Oh My Goodness!! It is even more gorgeous than I thought it would be!You've done a lovely job there - are you taking orders?!?
Thank-you so much for your good words, Rosette, Tina, Dawn, and amigurumiwoman :-) Beth
wow i love it, it looks wonderful on you! great colors ~Anne~ :D
Very pretty! Love it! I can't stand the idea of sewing squares (or even knitted seams for that matter) together so I crochet squares together as I go. I give you lots of credit for all of that sewing together. Very nice colors, too.Best,Lois
Thank-you so much for the kind words, Lois and Anne :-)I know what you mean about sewing all those blocks together, Lois. The biggest annoyance is weaving all those ends in so they don't show and don't come loose.Beth
Oh how Cozy! Just so lovely and snuggly warm!!! And made by hand!!!! Extra Special!!!
thats amazing, i've been searching relentlessly for a pattern just like this, can you tell me how to follow the template and sew together the squares, also, what size are they? i would love to know, thanks
Hi anonymous. The finished size of the granny squares for this sweater was 5 1/2 inches. If you can find a copy of the magazine (I'm pretty sure they sell back issues) it shows you how to stitch the squares together.Good luck!Beth
thank you so much! i ordered the magazine and it should be here soon!
i love your sweater. iam makeing one out of squares too, but am having problems sewing it together.ive got the sleeves sewed on, but now iam not sure how to sew the back to the front. could you maybe help me a bit. thank you so much. email@example.com thank you debi.
Hi Debi,If your pieces look like the ones pictured above, the next step is to sew the shoulder/arm seam from the wrist up to the shoulders. Leave the center two block of the back unsewn for the back of the neck. Then, sew up the side/underarm seam from the bottom of the sweater to the underarm and then to the wrist.I hope this helps,Beth
