Crochet Butterfly Glitz Pullover
I wanted to make something for myself. I had an idea and as usual it didn’t turn out as planned on the first try. When I first made this piece I didn’t realize that the drape in the front would be affected by working the butterflies and the piece ended up longer in the front than I wanted.
I was going to make a 2nd piece but decided to frog my work, frogging is where you Rip it, Rip it out but with using the yarn I had picked for this piece I learned that you can’t just RIP IT! There’s yarns out there that fuze together and it makes it even worse trying to pull it. Instead you need to work with both hands gently loosening the stitches apart as you go. Do not attempt frogging this yarn when mad, it will not go well.
I had already written out the pattern for my original version (as pictured at the bottom of this post) and have included it with the pattern. When I took pictures of the original piece a few people had mentioned they’d love to sew the sides together to turn it into a pull over dress.
One last thing, both these patterns are untested. I am publishing them as is, I am human and I make mistakes, if you work through this pattern and find a mistake or something that doesn’t make sense, please leave me a comment below and I will be willing to take a look. Would love to see if you hook one up, make sure to ‘hook up‘ on Ravelry.
