First of all, welcome to my new followers!
Second, bad news.. I finished my crochet project today, which is great ofcourse! But now I tried it on right before I was supposed to actually sew the pieces together and I ended up not liking it at all! This is so disappointing…
And it’s probably my own fault, not listening to things on paper.. The project was meant for a 3 mm hook, so I used that. On yarn that was meant for a 5 mm hook. And now the shirt is not falling down properly. It’s way too stiff. The sleeve parts make me look like a bat. Plus it makes me look kind of much bigger sized than I am, which is always bad.
Now I think I have a solution, but it’s not funny. I’m going to make a 10×10 with a larger hook, at least a 6, to see if that’s draping instead of.. stiff. If that works, I’ll take the whole thing apart and start over. So, bummer…
Now, I did film everything, so I will probably edit all that and upload it anyway, and after finishing the (possibly) reloaded version I might reupload the tutorial as well with an extra scene to show the new version. I hope that makes sence 😛
Before I will take everything apart though, I’m going to work on a different project. That will be a gift for my mom, it’s going to be a circle scarf in the same yarn as my shirt project thing. Since winter will come up soon I want to have that finished for her before it gets cold. This shirt is not warm enough for winter, so it can wait (:
Positive side to this: I wasn’t really tired of the pattern yet, at all! I was almost sad I was already ‘finished’..
If you have any advice on how to handle this project in a different way, please tell me about it! &what are your experiences with projects like this?
