Transformation Tuesday: A Beautiful Vest 7/14/2015

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:

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!


What are you working on, on this Transformation Tuesday?  Share below in the comments!

Happy Hooking and (k)Nifty Knitting!
