Introduction: My Crochet 3D Sweater

I found a 3 D pattern for an afghan and decided that I would like to crochet a sweater with that pattern. so this is it. I just love the 3 D pattern in this sweater.
I have been knitting for many years and I love making my own patterns, when I find something I like.
I also gave you pictures of close up so you can really see the 3D.

Feb.13/2007 update

I Just found the pattern, that I took to make this sweater. It was in the Quick & Easy Magazine Jan./Feb. 1999.

I am in the process of making an afghan, I just have to go buy one more colour.

Just found your pattern and loved it. Is there any way I could get the pattern as I"'m having trouble finding a pattern for my daughter. She needs a 3-4xxxx pattern. There are just not alot of patterns out the to crochet for a girl of that size, Any help would be greatly appreciated. From cold Michigan. Skeeter

that is really interesting - are you going to include instruction/pattern on how to do that design? that would be really nice if you could - the 3D effect is astounding.

I'm really sorry, but this has been bugging me for a while- how do you pronounce 'crochet'? Would it be 'cro-shay'?

author

Yes, it would sound like croshay.

Sorry for hijacking your comments with a discussion of geeky video games! (But now my husband wants a sweater or a blanket with this pattern. I'm in for some work.)

Wow.

Oh, that would be neat! Very geeky, though. ;)

Was it hard to make?

That looks fabulous! I'm impressed by your ability to translate patterns across different items- way ahead of my crocheting skill level. The 3D pattern makes me think of the old Q*Bert video game, so it has some retro geek appeal as well.

A Q*Bert pin hopping around on your sweater would be sweet!
