Sparkling Crochet Cardi

I just finished it, and it is beautiful! It fits perfectly, and it really does sparkle. Plus it is my first expert project, so I'm really glad it worked out.

I really like this project because of the color and the shimmer, so I decided to try it. This is my first expert project, so I hope everything goes O.K.


How is it going for you? I've been working on it for months, having to take breaks. I am finally on the sleeves. Finished the first one and realized that despite the increases, I ended up with fewer stitches than I started with. Frustrated, but determined to finish this thing. (It's going to be gorgeous once I'm finally finished!)

You are supposed to work a half double crochet in your beginng chain also. That's your problem.
