You Decide. I Design.

You Decide.  I Design.

Sharing is caring!

Hello my crochet friends!

I’ve decided to do something new. I want you to help me come up with one of my next crochet desings,

Here’s how it works:

At each phase of the design process I am going to ask you a one question with 3 – 5 multiple choice answers. You cast our vote in the comments below.

Voting on each phase will last for one week. I will then tally up the votes and then either ask another round of questions or perform the necessary work.

When the project is completely finished, I will have it tested, provide you with the PDF for free, and then host a crochet-along (CAL) showing how to crochet the design.

Now, there is one catch.

In order to receive the free PDF and join in the CAL you have to:

  1. Be one of my newsletter subscribers by signing up below:

Cast your vote in the comments below, take a picture of your vote, and email it to me at itchinforsomestitchin@gmail.com so I can find you in my subscribers list.

WEEK 4

VOTING PERIOD: NOVEMBER 29 – December 5, 2021

Okay so we are crocheting a Fall Cardigan! Now, I have a ton of ideas running through my mind and I am loving all your suggestions. I think in order to narrow down the style of our Fall Cardigan I need to know this question:

What length should our cardigan be?

A. Short (hem falling somewhere between between the belly button and the hips)

B. Medium (hem falling somewhere between between the hips and the knees)

C. Long (hem falling somewhere between between the knees and the ankles)

This an important question because I am not sure all cardigan styles look good at all lengths and some cannot be done unless they are a specific length, so I think length is a determining factor in the design path our cardigan will take.

I vote for medium length as I love sweaters that are longer as you can always use them as a coat.

On the shorter side of B, maybe with an option to make it longer for those that wish.
