For my first Transformation Tuesday post I would like to share a project I just finished. Transforming a few balls of yarn into a beautiful vest!
The pattern is free and is published by Lion Brand Yarn and is available for FREE from their website.
Here is the link: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/90550AD.html
The pattern calls for Vanna’s Choice Yarn, I opted to use Lion Brand’s Heartland yarn in Grand Canyon. I really like the way this yarn works up, and it is really soft. It is easy to work with on the hook as well. Heartland comes in a variety of beautiful colors, all of which have beautiful depth.
The pattern was really easy to follow, and was my first finished piece of apparel. I would recommend this pattern for beginners that have a fairly firm grasp on reading patterns, and comfortable with half-double and double crochet stitches.
The vest worked up quickly in just a matter of a few evenings.
I love the way it turned out. My husband asked when I would be opening my feminist bookstore. He thinks it looks like a costume from the show Portlandia; something that Candice from the Women and Women First Bookstore would wear. I choose to take that as a complement!
Now I just need to block this puppy and get my vest on!

Happy Hooking and (k)Nifty Knitting!
