I think just about everybody and their mother has made this, and how I have as well!
This was so easy and so fast–woo! I started and finished this in less than a night and a half. It’s for the very same cousin who’s getting the Boogie Vest.
It looks a bit twee and tiny–but I measured across the back and it seems like it might fit an actual sized person. I dunno how “the kids” are wearing things like this these days, but I’ll see this weekend.
Basically she’s getting a sweater vest that’s too large and a capelet that’s too small. Eventually I’ll hit the Goldilocks sweetspot. :eyebrow:
My cousin inherited the family boobings, but other than that she’s rather tiny. So my fingers are crossed! I don’t usually wear stuff like this, but I’m DEFINITELY stashing out one of these in my size.
The yarn is less than a ball of Paton’s Divine that I had in my stash (huzzah for busting!). My sweet youngest bro bought it for me as a gift–I think it looks pretty nice for this project. Gives it that slightly mussed look…but twas not my most favoritest yarn to work with :ick:
Look what it did to my favorite el cheapo yarn needle!
Oh well…I’m sure I could buy another at the supermarket. But I have to support my LYS and you know…walk out with a yarn needle and a few magical skeins of heaven. Pretty sure everybody here understands that phenomenon :verysad: . :happydance:
