Have you always wanted to crochet a piece of clothing but not known where to begin? Do you still have space in your fall wardrobe? Then Yarnplaza and Suzanne van der Ende have something fun just for you! Read on to find out more!
Last summer, Suzanne van der Ende—who you might know from her Instagram account, @liefsvansuus_— designed the gorgeous Catching Butterflies cardigan. Many of you fell in love with it and crocheted yourselves this stylish cardigan with a lovely diamond motif. And as a special treat for all of us this fall and winter, Suzanne is back with another great cardigan design exclusively for Yarnplaza!
‘I’ve got nothing to wear!’ Sound familiar? If you’ve ever found yourself thinking that while standing in front of an open wardrobe, you’ll understand the value of a good versatile garment all the more. What could be better than a sweater that looks picture-perfect, whether combined with jeans, a skirt or dress? Ideal, right? If you’ve been searching for just such an all-rounder, then look no further. We’ve got just the thing: the Chasing Sunsets Cardigan by Suzanne van der Ende!
The cardigan is made using the lush yarn, Yarn and Colors Baby Fabulous. A versatile blend of cotton and acrylic that comes in an extensive color palette of 35 beautiful colors. To take the cardigan to the next show-stopping level, the design incorporates the sparkly glitter yarn, Yarn and Colors Glamour. This touch of glitz means this stunning cardigan not only works perfectly for a casual look but can also be dressed up as part of a chic outfit. One thing’s for sure, this cardigan is an absolute must-have!
All good things come in threes
When it comes to our wardrobe, most of us tend to gravitate towards our favorite colors. Colors that suit us and bring us joy. To help ensure that this cardigan fits in perfectly with the rest of your closet, Suzanne has put together three fabulous colorways.
Color 1: Cream, Raspberry, Burgundy
Color 2: Cream, Glass, Aventurine
Color 3: Cream, Mustard, Antique Pink
