Sloane Sweater + Granny Square Roses = Love

Oct 28, 2015

Have I got something to share with you today!!  I made a new sweatshirt and I have a giant crush on it…which is why I am blogging at 7pm on a Wednesday night.  Because I cannot wait a minute more to show you the pictures. So here they are.  Squeee!!

I won the Sloane Sweater pattern by Love Notions in a giveaway and was super excited to try it out.  The thing that spoke to me the most was the optional yoke, which ran from a traditional yoke position on the back…but traveled over the shoulder to the front of your shirt.  So if you chose a contrasting fabric, or cut something patterned on the bias, you would have a peekaboo style yoke on your shoulders.

It was exactly what I needed to be able to incorporate more crocheted granny squares into a piece of clothing.  I absolutely love how it turned out.

It took six granny square roses to complete the look.  That’s all!  The great thing about crocheted panels is that they’ve got a great open weave and will fit into any pattern piece without a lot of trouble.  Yarn is stretchy, the way they are made is moveable.  And with a little fidgeting, they fit perfectly.

I laid out my squares on the pattern piece that I needed it to fit in.  And then got to work.

Pssst….if you’re a crocheter yourself and want to know how I made these squares, check back here on Friday for a freebie pattern.  You can make this yourself!  Woot!

The Sloane sweater is a very relaxed fit and perfect for fall.  In fact, it was quite perfect for this new sweater fleece material that I picked up at Joanns.  I bought it without an actual idea of what to make.  Impulse fabric purchases often end up as my favorite makes.  Why is that?

The only complaint I actually have is my fault.  And it’s not a fit issue, as much as it is that I apparently stretched the bottom a bit while I was hemming it and it’s being a little crazy/wonky.  I think after it’s been washed it’ll lay just fine.  (Because that bubble butt look I have going on from the side is not so flattering.)

All of my worries about this ending up “old lady-ish” has gone out the window.  I adore this top.  It’s insanely comfy and paired with these jeggings, it was exactly the look I was hoping for.

Now excuse me as I go granny square all the things.

You can find Love Notions all over the web.  No worries.
