HandMade: The Peace, Love & Fringe Cardigan

Hello there! Happy Thursday! 
  Here is my complete project from last week's, What's On My Hook?  A crochet fringe cardigan! This cardigan came out exactly how I had planned and designed which makes me a happy woman. :) I made the front of the cardigan shorter than the back to give it that high low feel that I've been seeing on numerous dresses. I wanted to apply it to this cardigan alongside the fringe. The fringe was cut in completely different sizes, some are short, some are longer, which goes along with the feel of the cardigan being free and letting the fringe fall where it falls. Didn't want any of it to feel perfect so to speak. Also, I decided to add fringe to the 3 quarter length sleeves for an element of surprise and a bit of fun.
The crochet technique I used, was the single crochet and an open work stitch that made it a bit freeing and perfect for layering over tops and dresses.

The Yarn I used: Bernat Baby Sport Yarn (Baby Taupe)
The Hook I used: H/8-5.00 MM   
The Pattern I used: Experimental: My Own!

outfit details: dress from rue 21/top from rue 21/fringe necklace from kohls/sunglasses from party city/hat from forever 21/boots from dsw (few years back)
Note: I will be sharing the patterns that I have created in my Handmade posts. It will be a crochet book pattern that will feature all of the projects!
