Lacey crocheted white over sweater

Have not done a lot of posts on things other than ZIA or Zentangle® items.  Actually it has been a long time since I have posted anything.  Part of the reason is that I participated in a Winter Market that met for 6 consecutive Saturdays.  The last Saturday was December 16.  Here are pictures of my area and the different things for sale.

This kept me pretty busy.  In the process, tried to keep some of the smaller items available if I sold what I had.  Also ended up with 2 commissioned pieces. The one was a set of tiles that I put in an acrylic frame for coasters.  I do not have pictures of those.  Were both ZIAs with a musical  theme.  The other was a crocheted sweater.  I have modified things that I made for family members but this was the first time I did something for someone else and without a pattern.  I went to Ravelry and looked for some ideas as I knew what she wanted.  Took some information from one on sizing and took off from there. I had done a lacey shawl that she liked and she wanted something along those lines.  Could not replicate the exact pattern as the shawl was done in a large triangle. Anyway, here is what I ended up with for the completed project.  I was pretty pleased with it.  Have not delivered it yet so hope she enjoys it.  Here is a picture of the finished sweater.

It is a simple pattern using double crochet stitches. The neck and arm openings are finished with single crochet rounds and the bottom has a shell stitch. That was one of the stitches that was used in the shawl that she liked as an edging and I was able to incorporate it in the sweater as well.

Thanks for visiting.  As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.

Go Tangle !! ( or knit or crochet if that is your thing!)
