The first baby cardigan I ever crocheted was the project assigned in the Craftsy Class:

Craftsy Class

In the summer of 2012 I enrolled in the Beyond Rectangles class, taught by Linda Permann. It was the first Craftsy class I signed-up to take.  I must admit…I really took my time to complete this class.

I had all the pieces made and ready to sew together and they just sat in a ziplock bag with my stash…waiting for me to take the leap and sew them together.  I came across the bag last week and decided “enough was enough” and I best get the sweater assembled.

Linda is very personable instructor and she provides many tips and tricks in her classes that you can use in all elements of crochet.

This was the first ‘garment’ I ever attempted to crochet and I think it turned out nicely.

I also love that, even after a year, I could go back to my class and watch the lessons.  You can do that as many times and as often as you want.  Once you pay for the class it stays in your Craftsy Library – for you to reference at your leisure (lol – or at my extreme leisure?).

Here is my completed sweater – I have the urge to tuck it away until my babies have babies…but I think this one will also go to my wee niece, Savannah.  My sister(s) and I have no issues with dressing our Littles in all the colours of the rainbow (and a few outside the rainbow too!).

The yarn I used was Estelle South Pacific.  It is the most lovely cotton I have ever worked with and the first yarn I ever purchased from a Yarn Speciality Shop, rather than a regular retail location.

If I ever win the lottery I suspect I will have a whole new Stash to play with!

Here are two photos of the finished sweater:

I love this little sweater! I wish I could wear it!!

Since taking this class I have also acquired Linda’s book “Little Crochet” – some very excellent patterns in that book!

For those of you who would like to try a Linda Permann pattern, she has “Little Sister” available for FREE:
