It dawned on me that I haven't ever shown the vests and one jacket that I've worked up.
It started with the purchase of a lot of discontinued Lion Brand Amazing yarn during a shopping trip to Tuesday Morning. Since this yarn has a very long variegation, I started looking for patterns that were worked from wrist to wrist so the stripes would be vertical.
First up was the Cuff-to-Cuff short sleeved sweater. I believe I even found the free pattern on the Lion Brand website, but don't hold me to that information. I love this sweater and wear it a lot.
And then I crocheted this jacket. I have had this pattern for decades, yes you read that correctly. I loved the fullness of it and cut the pattern from the magazine. Women's Day or Family Circle I think. I have given this jacket to my BFF in another (cold) state.
Not truly vertical stripes, but I wanted to try the mitering on this one. You start with a triangle and then pick up stitches to make a square on one side and keep going in this manner. This was a fun knit. I added a zipper because it turned out a bit big and needed to be contained.
Ah. Prudence Crowley, the vest. Love this! Knit in two simple pieces and then seamed together. I love the way this one fits and it is definitely flattering.
