Crochet Project Goal

January 13, 2022

Hello blog friends.  If any of you have been following me for a while, then you know I love crocheting during the winter months.  It's the new year and I've set a crochet goal for myself.

Can you believe I've never made a sweater!  I want to crochet a sweater for myself.  I've searched Ravelry and Pinterest and I've found a free beginner crochet pattern that I like. 

I've found a free pattern on Pinterest at Hooked on Homemade Happiness.  I liked the way this oversized sweater looked.

I went online to look for the yarn at Michaels and Joann stores.  I decided to take a drive and buy the yarn in the store.  There was a special for the yarn at Michaels, buy one get one 1/2 off.  I was so surprised to see the bins of yarn I needed almost empty.  I needed at least 6 skeins of yarn.  I picked out 6 skeins of tan yarn.  I figured it would be easier for me to use the same color yarn for this project. 

I started working on the sweater yesterday afternoon.  It means that I'm on my way to a new goal and project for the new year.

When I am finished, I will post about this sweater project.

What project are you working on?

  1. What a great goal to set! I can't wait to see how it turns out.

  2. I'm sure you will succeed at your goal! Can't wait to see the finished product!

  3. What a great project Julie, I can't wait to see how it turns out, I bet it will be so cosy and warm. I am crocheting a wheelchair seat cushion cover for my brother and I really need to get this done before I can start on anything else.

  4. I cannot wait to see your finished sweater I know it will be beautiful. You have such a talent with crocheting. xoxo Kris

  5. What a cool goal! My daughter has crocheted a few sweaters and halter tops and I love them. I can't wait to see your finished sweater. I like that color yarn!

  6. Oh this is lovely! I can't wait to see it on you. Your projects are always so pretty. xo

  7. What a wonderful goal. I have never learned to crochet and kept thinking I would do it when I got OLD. Hmmmm....well, I'm there and still no crocheting going on here. xo Diana

  8. Great goal and fab start of the sweater! Cannot wait to see it!

  9. Good for you in starting a new crochet project! I’ve been sewing all afternoon. I’ll look forward to seeing your finished sweater, Julie.

  10. I’ll be interested to see how you like this pattern. I’ve never made a sweater either even though I’ve been crocheting since I was about 8 years old. I think your color choice is great. You’ll be able to wear this neutral color with so many things! Zenda
