Item de SOYL: Knitted

Owk what do you do when you can´t knit but still want to make your own sweater, my solution is to try to braid and crochet your way out of it. Those who read my blog often know that I started with sewing 6 months ago after I almost tripped over the stacks of designs I have on paper... so bear with me..
I  first outlined and framed the design I wanted with long braids of wool. Then filled the open parts by hand with crochet, no needles were use in the process....So I´m owk with the outcome but I need to experiment some more.. I feel a new  DIY and more “knitted” items coming up ... Keep you posted X

  1. you amaze and inspire me!!! love the outcome of your project, it's so awesome! I tried my hand at knitting the end of last year, hoping to acquire a new skill in time for the knit trend, but I ended up giving up and buying instead haha. Nice to see there is a way around it :) Keep it up, looking forward to future posts! xx Kailee @ www.themannikin.com/blog
