A wrap vest

I'm having a bit of a run of finished projects at the moment. Novel, but exciting!

I finished this one last night. All I need to do now is find something more appropriate than a crochet hook to use as a fastener.
It's lovely and cozy, and I can't wait to try it out properly. It should see me well through this winter as the bump (aka peanut) expands, and should transfer nicely to normal wear ready for next winter.

Details:
Pattern: Michelle's version of Leonie's wrap vest
Yarn: Patons Wilderness (colourway 503), 5.1 balls
Hook: 7mm

Ravelled here.

I think 'peanut' may have outgrown his/her name name now Dillpickle! That wrap vest is lovely - nice work and the colour is gorgeous, I so want to learn how to do this. Cheers

Warm and snuggly and perfect for the cold snap. Even better that it goes from maternity and back to normal again!

Kate said...

Yay!!
It looks gorgeous Anna. So perfect for your growing tummy. I made one at market today for Indi, they are a bit adictive. I might just need one in that gorgeous colour too.
So just a quick question...have you blocked it and if so how? Mine has been worn non stop for a few weeks now and is nowhere near as neat looking as yours.
I hope you guys have had a lovely weekend. X

Leonie said...

Oh my! Been out of the blogging loop for waaaaay too long. I'm so glad I didn't miss out on this! It's wonderful! How great does it look? Will need to plan my own one now!!

Your wrap looks so cute and will surely keep you and the peanut lovely and cozy through this very cold winter!

Angie said...

Personally I love the crochet hook!

This just looks amazingly stylish & snug.

I must have missed the bit about peanut, congratulations!

P.S. I did eventually put together a tutorial of sorts (very rough) about flipping the collar on men's shirts.

Ahhhh.... Perfection!! Really lovely and a great shot of your belly too. I'm with Angie on the crochet hook... Or a knitting needle would look awesome too.
