This is from the cover of a beginner’s Crochet booklet my MIL had. The guy on here is trying to have a good attitude about it, but he secretly fears that he will have to wear it to work as-is. Seems like it would be easy enough to shorten those sleeves?
This is not a good advertisement for starting to crochet. It’s like a new-car brochure with a picture of a steaming wreck on the front.
