Eeks, I need your help!

add a cherry pink
I started a project, a crocheted cardigan for my baby girl - I was a good girl,  read the pattern, found the yarn, hooks and started the pattern.
Until, I discovered, I read the pattern wrong. Well not the pattern, I guess you'd say I read the ingredients wrong!
add a forest green
add a yellow

add an orange
add a cream

add a navy
I didn't read the amount of yarn needed correctly and I'm going to run out with the sleeves still to crochet. The main two colours are pale & candy pink.
So, this is where you come in.  Do I
...a).. just sew it up as is & use what is left over to make mini  cap sleeves.
...b)..use another colour (see photos for the colours I have available) and add the crochet in a similar style to the rest (& use that new colouras the trim as well).
...c)..toss into into the back of the cupboard unfinished & forget about it.

  1. Despite it being winter, I love the idea of little cap sleeves - maybe wearing it over a thin sweater?
    If not, maybe the cream colour would blend best? :)

  2. By no way the last option! I think i would use the pink on top and make your little sleeves for summer with A longarm T-shirt underneeth.

  3. I'm thinking capped sleeves.

  4. If these are the only colors you have I would choose the cream. Do not toss to back of cupboard! Looks lovely!

  5. I vote for cap sleeves or using cream.

    I am having the same problem too! I am crocheting a cardi for donation and was going to use teal and pink but the more I used the teal the less I liked the pink to go with it so I decided to do the whole thing in teal... and I dont have enough for the sleeves! So I will be donating it as a vest.

  6. I think the navy would look pretty!

  7. I love the cap sleeves also. Isn't it summer in your part of the world?

  8. Use the Yellow it will be beautiful and happy!
