I wanted to have an easy project for someone who is new to graphs that would be good for warmer weather. So I came up with this arm corset! I love how it looks and the simplicity of it. It is a great pattern for someone who is new to graphing. I have included TWO graphs in this post. One is the leopard heart from the drink sleeve post rotated for the cuff and the other is a butterfly that is a new release perfect for beginning to graph. This can also be worked without a graph and looks great plain in both the single crochet and the Tunisian.
This pattern happened because I had a customer who sent me a picture and I couldn’t find any patterns that were exactly what I wanted.
So I picked up my hook and went to creating.
Swirling Leaves is one of my favorite stitches to use. I found it originally on a stitch site then adapted it to work how I wanted it to but left the basic bones of the stitch alone. I now have several patterns available in this line and some of them are free as contributions to Cre8tion Crochet.
I love this picture from one of my pattern testers. She did the Swirling Leaves Vest, Boot Cuffs and Fingerless Gloves for me. She used Lion Brand Heartland Glacier Bay Tweed and I LOVE how they came out.
