Crochet Tutorial: The G.G. (Gorgeous Gal) Cardigan


YARNutopia by Nadia Fuad

Designer, Rosetta Getty, created The Granny Square Mixed Media Cardigan. Fashion model, Gigi Hadid, was photographed by paparazzi wearing that sweater, and it exploded all over the Internet. Being the fashion maven that I am, I had to have it! So, I designed my very own! My G.G. (Gorgeous Gal) Cardigan was an intense work of creative fashion art. I designed it based off the photo. Here I am modeling my version next to the photo of Gigi Hadid wearing hers.

Those that finished came up with the most adorable little princess dolls 🙂 Some we still wait to finish their projects. If ladies agree I will post their photos for all of you to see.

What I am specially satisfied that not matter which weight yarn or size hook was used, the pattern worked well for all.
