Easy Breezy Vest - Purple

| No Comments

Cover of Crochet! magazine, March 2006 issue - Easy Breezy Cardigan (way too small!) on cover.
[photos not available unless I can get the vest back from Patrice for a short time]

Size: I adjusted the pattern to be much less tight than shown in the magazine photos. The end result fits a Medium-size woman very nicely.
Colors: Purple (Lion Brand Microspun)
Pattern: Easy Breezy Vest - based on the Easy Breezy Cardigan - Design by Doris Chan
Book: Crochet! magazine, March 2006, page 22
Hook: J
Date: June 2006

I tried and tried to adjust the Easy Breezy Cardigan pattern to fit me, but didn't succeed. As I wrote previously, when the body almost done, I discovered it really wasn't going to work. But, it did fit Patrice (my boss - she doesn't like that term!) and looked great as a colorful vest. So, now it is the Easy Breezy Vest! I finished the bottom edging and sleeve opening edging and gave it to her.

I then started another Easy Breezy Cardigan for myself but pulled it out before our vacation in Hawaii. I brought it along on the trip but didn't touch it. Something about sweating while sitting still and sunscreen covering my chest, arms, and face didn't make crocheting sound apetizing.
