Interweave Crochet Fall 2013-----Great Wall Pullover

When I was a little girl, my favorite game was making myself up like an ancient lady. I always think their clothes are so beautiful and represent the deep Chinese culture and traditions.

The idea for my newest design came from the women’s traditional dress of The Han Dynasty. After I designed the pattern for the neck line and the cuffs, I decided to name it Great Wall. It looks like The Great Wall to me. I selected the main body pattern to resemble the fans that Asian women carried with them during that period!

This pullover has a unique neckline, a beautiful shape and an eastern style.
