Your Me-Made-May Instagram Favorites

Me-Made-May is an annual challenge which encourages people who make their own garments to wear and love them more. As you can imagine, this is a mission near and dear to our hearts here at Interweave. We are a company of knitters, crocheters, weavers, and sewers, and we get really excited about anything that encourages more people to make and wear handmade garments.
Here at Interweave, our Me-Made-May challenge was to show off some of the incredible handmade garments that our team members have created. Throughout the month of May, we’ve been sharing these projects on our Interweave Craft Instagram account using #MMMay17.

Sara Dudek’s Temescal Cardigan from Interweave Crochet Fall 2016, designed by Peter Franzi

There’s a very fine a blurry line between menswear and womenswear, and Interweave Crochet editor Sara Dudek proves that a woman can rock an oversized men’s cardigan! The Temescal Cardigan uses four different cable patterns for striking effect and a serious stitching challenge.
