This crazy sweater is finally finished. A crocheted edging did the trick.
First, a row of crocheted “eyelets” out of smooth silk in variegated green/rose/yellow, all the way around the fronts, neckline and hem.
Then, a solid row of double-crochets on top of the eyelet row.
If you would like to try something like this, take a look at Jane Thornley’s patterns, at the following link:
My sweater began with her “Dusk to Dawn” pattern.
