it’s not easy being green

It’s actu­al­ly a real­ly easy pat­tern, it just reminds me of Ker­mit’s song :D

I spot­ted the Kawasa­ki pat­tern by Crafty Queens on Rav­el­ry, and I loved the geo­met­ric fil­let cro­chet eye­lets around the sleeves and the edge of the sweater. It’s a sim­ple and bril­liant design, and a very quick make.

I used the “leaf green” of Pre­mier Cot­ton Fair, because it’s the only DK weight cot­ton yarn that’s avail­able at my local Michaels and it’s rel­a­tive­ly afford­able. It turns out to be very soft and smooth, and the fin­ished gar­ment quite breath­able, just a bit split­ty while work­ing with it, but will def­i­nite­ly use it again.

I wore it to a fam­i­ly func­tion in which I was entrust­ed with the task of tak­ing pic­tures of the guests at the pho­to booth and through­out the event, so I did­n’t have a chance to take a pic­ture with the new sweater except in the bath­room. Nev­er have I thought I’d take a bath­room self­ie, but this bath­room’s got some retro wall­pa­per that goes real­ly well with my retro out­fit. And if I did­n’t tell you that this was a bath­room, you would’ve nev­er guessed, would you? :P

  1. Thanks so much Kate! Colour was inspired by the orig­i­nal pat­tern and because that was the only colour left on the shelf with enough skeins for the project :P I’m hap­py it worked out!

  2. I’m so in love with your ver­sion! I think I will make anoth­er just with the top eye­let sec­tion, thank you for the inspi­ra­tion :) xo Carmen

    ps. fun­ny sto­ry: your dumpling pat­tern was actu­al­ly one of the first pat­terns I ever cro­cheted, it’s so fun that you’ve made one of mine now too! :)
