Morphing Crochet Projects

I'm shaking my head as I write this... it seems that every time I try to follow a crochet pattern, I end up making significant changes to it. The Whisper of Elegance sweater that I was making is morphing into something totally different pattern wise. At first I thought I didn't have enough yarn. So I made it shorter. I also made it bigger. I then got to the arm area and thought... hmmm inset arms would be nice, so I changed that. I did follow the instructions for the "V" in the front of the sweater. Now I am on to the arms and changing those... I'm making the arms rounded at the top so I can do sort of a cap sleeve. I plan on making a belt for it as well as adding ribbing all around the sweater, and sort of a shawl collar for it. I think since I have made so many changes, this must be an original for me. I'll have to write the pattern out and see if it works.

I am thinking that I will make the Whisper of Elegance sweater next and really follow the pattern. I need to purchase the yarn for that one... I think I want it in pale blue. I think it would look real nice in a Homespun type yarn. I will have to see what I find.
