BoHo Blocks Cardigan

BoHo Blocks Cardigan

It took me awhile, but I FINALLY finished my BoHo Blocks Cardigan!  I used Noro Taiyo Sock Yarn and a size "C" crochet hook.  This is an Interweave Crochet pattern from 2006.  Yes, I've wanted to make this sweater for 8 years!

I do love the colorway of this yarn, #23Mr. Noro is a genius (photo at left).  Each square is a little work of art.  The long color runs in Noro yarn make for very interesting motifs.
I still need to find the perfect buttons for this cardigan.  Don't judge me, because I will probably be wearing this sweater EVERY day during autumn!

It is easier for me to make a sweater with motifs.  I didn't have to carry around a big hunk o' sweater as I progressed.  Also, because this cardigan is modular, I could try it on and figure out how to make it bigger in certain places just by adding more motifs.  I think this pattern would look great in a solid yarn too.  The weight of the yarn (light) makes this a very comfortable sweater to wear year-round.

Looks even better on my chair!

Beautiful! Applause! I hope I get to see it in person. It is true that it'd be great in solid,like a nice natural gray, but it'd be hard to force myself to do that.
