The plan for this week's post was originally going to be about different kinds of i-cord frog closures. Many of the different kinds of images or tutorials that I collected just weren't doing it for me. I wanted to show something a little fresher and simpler when I stumbled upon this site with some of the most inspiring sweater designs.
What is so charming about the featured designs is the simple lines and stitches used. The closure provides the colour and the texture much like a brooch adds excitement and drama to an outfit. The "frog" is a simple crocheted circle with an attached loop. The other side has the same circle with a button.
There are endless possibilities to create. Hearts, tiny granny squares, beaded circles, embroidered shapes just to quickly mention a few and an excellent way to refresh a well worn jacket.
