Work~in~Progress Wednesday – The Granny Square CardiΒ 

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Thanks for peeking in.

I’ve made a little progress on the ‘Granny Square Cardigan. 

The sleeve design is finished…they’re 2 Granny Square halves, joined with a crocheted mock lace-up. 


To get the second one to be absolutely identical was a bit of a challenge 😁 See, the number of the yellow squares would not come out the same. The first sleeve has 33 on each side, when I finished the second one I got 32…unravel πŸ˜•, next time was 34. Ugh! 

So I layered the unfinished pieces onto the finished sleeve and marked the entry for the stitches with pins. 


Bingo! 33! πŸ€“

That’s all I’ve got crocheted. To continue I have to plan a bit more. Like I mentioned before, looks like it’ll be another puzzle project! πŸ˜‹

This is the latest design 


I do like it….the neckline is giving me a little headache though. Any suggestions really are welcomed. 

Now I’ll start on the yellow square halves…hopefully by next week this cardi will have taken shape. 😊

I’m looking forward to your comments/suggestions 😎

Until then πŸ’•

    Depending on how much space you have between the two front parts, you can use some nice edging going from top to bottom of each side for couple(maybe bit more) of rows, and on top, you could skip(decrease like) cluster to create neckline, and then go couple of row around the whole front (right+left side and the top) to give it a smoother look…. I hope it make sense what i wrote 😊 good luck!
