Against The Breakers

The Summer Issue of Crochet! Magazine will soon be on stands and available for download on line.
 I mention this event in way of introducing a pattern of my own that will be included in the magazine.  Continuing with the 'Four Elements' theme that the magazine has set as backdrop for 2013 selection of patterns, the summer issue is devoted to water and conjures thought of days along the beach and nights with cool breezes.
“Against The Breakers Cardi” is a Lacy summer sweater. It is made in medium weight Blue Lagoon Crystal Palace Cotton Twill. This cotton flowed through my fingers as I was constructing the cardigan. You will like it I'm sure. With basic stitch knowledge anyone can make this garment in a short time. Half double crochet stitches are worked to an interesting effect. 
Short row half double crochet triangular shapes are made one at a time in row, hence the idea of waves against the breakers. 
I am so excited that the e-magazine is on sale any day now and the print version is on sale by June 4th.  available on the CrochetMagazine website.

  1. I just found this pattern and would love to ask you a question. To test the guage do you use the HDC or the DC stitch?
    Also, do you think a cotton silk blend worsted weight yarn would work? (Premier Debra Norville Cotton Soft Silk). Thank you. You've designed a beautiful sweater.
