How cute is Andi Satterlund? She’s the designer of that great two-tone sleeveless sweater in the latest Pom Pom Quarterly,* and last week she released her first ever crocheted sweater pattern, Elsa — a textured stripe-effect jacket with a zipper and nice detailing. I’m sure I’ve said this before, but for some reason when summer rolls around I get the urge to brush up on my crochet skills, and I always picture very small, short-term projects — which may be a big part of why I associate it with summer. But now I’m actually thinking of attempting to crochet a whole sweater. This is one that, if done in ivory, would fill a hole in my wardrobe left by the tragic pilling of one of my favorite cardigans ever. Do I dare attempt this?
Also: If Iz ever published a pattern for this sweater, I’d be similarly tempted. Just sayin’.
*I’m kind of surprised the additional copies haven’t arrived yet, but I promise I won’t forget to let you know when they do. [UPDATE: It's back!] I also have the extremely enticing new Kinfolk coming any minute, so stand by for magazine alerts!
