Cool Water Vest




The yarn that I used for this project is Bernat Solo... the color is Water. The yarn has a Mohair look and very soft. This crochet wearable is machine washable - use lukewarm water and lay flat to dry...... I started this project in early-summer... ...but wasn't sure where I was going with it (my subconscious was thinking cardigan)... well I worked on it on and off... then I ran out of yarn and couldn't do the sleeves... and it was too darn hot to continue on.. so it hung-out in my WIP basket... recently I pulled it out, and my daughter saw me fiddling around with it and wanted to know who the recipient would be... well I didn't have one and she decided that she would be the recipient. I started working on the sleeves using a Caron gray yarn.. but she wasn't feeling it and wanted it to be a vest.. well that was easy... I just didn't do the sleeves. My daughter sported the vest on one of our cool days with a hoody sweatshirt under it and jeans. The vest looked really cool.
