I started this project in November last year and kept it at my office to work on during lunch breaks. Finally finished!
I used Artiste #10 Cotton Thread held double. I made a few modifications to fit my taste. I held the thread double throughout. Didn’t want a pullover so left front open. Closed V in back with simple mesh stitch. Finished with HDC trim all around.
I purchased this Interlacements Rick Rack yarn in the color “Las Vegas Brights” without a clue as to what I would use if for. One hank held 1200 yards and the colors called to me. I found this pattern on Ravelry and was inspired.
I worked the bodice in a different pattern. I tried several times with this pattern, but just got too frustrated with the pattern. That’s what I love about Crochet & Knitting…you can always improvise.
I loved the Miss Grace design by Skeino from the instant I saw it. I just didn’t want to knit a shawl or wrap as I seldom use those garments. I had this felting wool in my stash which was a door prize at a yarn show and knew it would be perfect! As this is my first felting project, the finished product is far beyond my expectations.
The yarn is Knit One, Crochet Too (Paint Box & Parfait Solids)
Here’s a link to the pattern:
