Well you know how I have been telling you for weeks and weeks and weeks (about 6 or 7 actually) that I had a big project to show - but I didn't show you??????? First off it was too warm to wear it and then I could not get photos, so then I gave up - not great photos, but at least you can see it
Dawn also has a blog in which there are many beautiful crocheted items. So pop on over here, Fiddlesticks, for a read, that's if you have not already been there ☺
I only loosely followed the pattern as I am too short and too wide for the dimensions, but the instructions are worked based on your own measurements. It was mainly the length that I found tricky and adjustments were made. It is basically granny squares and triangles. I would have liked it a bit more on the front or .......
I can always lose some tummy ☺ ☺ ☺
Yarn - Colinette Cadenza Jamboree and Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury in Ruby - both of which are 8 ply very, very, very, very soft yarn.
Hook - 5mm (that's just my preference for the slightly thicker than normal, soft 8 plys)
I am very happy with the vest. I usually don't like too much on my arms and this was an idea I was working on while The Garden Bell was working on her VO cardigan. Similiar ideas, heh!!!
