Long time, no see, friends!
I hope you all had a very merry Christmas filled with love and people you care about.
This year has brought lots of positive things to our life, but it has also brought a fair share of struggles. Before I get to talking about my new pattern, I want to remind all of you that in the midst of your toil, in all of your struggles, worries, and pain, God has not forgotten you. You may not understand the things He is allowing to happen in your life, but know that He will see you through it. He is using you for His great purpose! I may not understand the things my family is facing right now or see an end, but God does. He has been to the other side of your storm. He knows what's coming, and He is there, walking right with you. WIth God by our side, we cannot fail. So keep walking. No matter what comes your way, keep pressing, knowing that if you trust His plan and have faith, He will carry you when you feel like you have walked your soles bare and can't possibly take another step. Trust Him and lean on Him and you cannot fail.
Okay! Glad I got that out there. Moving on!
I have been making this sweater for a few months now. It's one that I just kinda said, "What if I do this..." and played with it till I got what I wanted.
I just made one for myself initially, not thinking many people would care. I got my mom to snap a picture (see right➡️) and posted it on my Facebook page. Well it turns out that a lot of people cared. That one single post has gotten the most views out of ALL other posts on my page. I got orders left and right for that sweater! I was so incredibly shocked and humbled by the attention it received. I legitimately was amazed every time I logged into Facebook and saw the post reach number growing higher and higher. I was busy for WEEKS filling orders.
One day, I received a comment asking for the pattern because she lived in another country and it would be too expensive to ship the finished sweater. Never did it occur to me to write down my pattern! So off I went to try to explain my scattered process. Of course that meant I had to make another sweater so I could include step by step photos in the pattern for y'all!
SO.. I have finally finished all parts of this pattern and it is ready to be read and created by crocheters everywhere!
After you create this sweater, please leave a review in my Etsy shop and let others know what you thought! Feel free to comment here or contact me with any questions you come across while working! I am happy to help!
