Simple Comfy Blanket Sweater (Knit & Crochet)


So this is what happened... My mom knits and I crochet and we BOTH wanted to make a blanket sweater. So naturally, we turned it into a competition. Who's stitches look better.... who finished it faster.... you name it. We had a blast! But now we don't want to know who won. We're each just claiming the win regardless of the actual results ☺️.
