Vintage clothing is still on the rise. It’s amazing how those clothes have come back into style. Many famous designers still take inspiration from vintage clothing to produce current. I can’t stay away.

You know when I designed this sweater it wasn’t suppose to look like this at all. I imagined it quite different, but when I finished and tried it on I found out that it had a special vintage look which wasn’t considered to be.

This vintage sweater is worked top down. it is a perfect method to make a crochet garment that really fit. There is a very beneficial advantage because you can try your unfinished garment on any time. To get a perfect fit, try the pullover on as you go, and add or subtract any length from the body or the sleeves before crocheting the edging.

Complete your vintage-inspired outfit with this amazing vintage sweater, it will work with many your different outfits perfectly.
