The Rising Ra Cardigan

Today's inspiration (I'm not even going to tell you where it's from because I'm sure you can probably guess):

The collar on this sweater is beaded and there was no way I had the patience to try to add all of that beading. But I thought I could achieve a similar look with a crocheted collar. I used this free pattern, and it worked up really quickly. I'm not sure I technically followed the pattern correctly but it ended up turning out fine. (And it's removable for washing)


  1. SO pretty!!! I just love seeing anthropologie knockoffs.

  2. Soon you'll be designing for Anthropoloie and others. Great creation!!

  3. Very Nice!!! The crochet collar is a GREAT trade for the beading, less fussy and more functional (removes for washing.)
