Why Freelancer? :)

Because this pattern was designed to give the wearer an energetic boost and positive attitude of a Freelancer! Feel young and free, capture the mood of the moment and be in control of your own life! Opt for a cake yarn - the color changes will add more visual interest to the simple stitches. The drapey yarn turns any excessive width into length while the scalloped fringed edge makes this garment look quite dynamic and proportional.

This project can be crocheted while watching TV once you get accustomed to the stitches.

What else makes this garment a win-win for any crocheter (but not for any yarn seller :)) is that it’s not a yarn eater! You will need just 1140 yards for the size S-M, length 63.5 cm = 25’’ - sample shown; and it’s slightly more than one ball of Scheepjes whirl. For the size 4XL-5XL and the same length you will need 1835 yards - less than two balls of Scheepjes whirl.
