Cuddle Up Over-sized Sweater

Updated: Mar 4

It's been cold and snowy here in MN this weekend but I've made good use out of it! It's the perfect weather to stay home, curl up in a nice afghan and crochet! And that's exactly what I did. I'm feeling pretty accomplished this Sunday as I've finished 2 of my outstanding projects I've been meaning to complete and I *almost* finished 2 others! That takes my WIP count down to about 8- ha! Anyone else have a hard time keeping themselves from starting new projects?

This oversized cozy sweater isn't one of the projects I finished this weekend but I finally finished up the pattern so I could share it with all of you!

I used one of my favorite yarns- Lion Brand Heartland. It's so soft and has such a good drape! I'm also in love with the color! I saw the yarn in the store quite a while ago and love the color but had to stew a while to figure out what it was meant to be.

You'll find the Darling Dana Designs original pattern below.

Happy Crocheting!
