HandMade: The "Violet, You're Turning Violet!" Crochet Sweater

Hello there! Happy Thursday! Here is my complete project from last week's, What's On My Hook?  A crochet peter pan collared sweater. To be honest, I thought this was going to come out entirely different from how I had planned and designed, but I stuck with it  and it worked itself out! 
I've had this idea in my head for quite awhile and had been saving this yarn for this particular project. Now that its' finally the right time, the right season, I decided to whip it up and now I'm ready for more sweaters in all the colors!

The crochet technique I used, was the half double crochet, double crochet and an open work stitch that worked quite well for the lace romper I wanted to pair with it. I stuck with the basics as usual for this project. For the collar, I crocheted the collar separately and sewed it onto the sweater.

The Yarn I used: Deep Violet// Red Heart Soft for the sweater and Light Grey// Red Heart Soft
The Hook I used: J/10-6.00MM   
The Pattern I used: Experimental: My Own!

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!
