As one who enjoys quick projects, and distractions from existing projects, my first though was, "I am totally going to make that."
The design is worked from the top down, a crochet equivalent to top down raglans that have become ubiquitous in knit sweater patterns. The collar, cuffs, and hem are worked by picking up stitches in the crochet fabric and knitting down in seed stitch.
Along with fellow crochet aficionado Cal Patch, we are hosting a very informal Crochet Along (CAL) in our Ravelry group. We hope you join us in making your own Swink!, or just join to follow our progress as we make ours (with inevitable modifications as I am incapable of following instructions - more on that at a later date)!
We hope to see you there! - CAK
