A crochet vest...

Last week I was tired of my knitting summer top that didn't have a good outcome... I'm still upset for it and it's away in a plastic bag until I get the courage to deal with it...
My crochet projects are finally on the go... I'm making 2 duster toppers (really big projects) and I was out of yarn for both of them for almost a month... so getting back to working on them was difficult because it felt that I've been working on that forever...

I needed something fast, enjoyable and with great results and looking for something else, I came across this jacket on Ravelry. It's from Lana Grossa and I loved it....
The pattern looked super simple and fast (using a 9mm/N-M hook!!!)
Wondering around the shop to decide on yarn and back to my beloved Vintage Chunky....

3 days and Ta-Dah!!!!!!!!
Absolutely perfect!!! don't you think??

I LOVE it!!!!! I decided to leave it as a vest because spring and summer are coming so I didn't add the sleeves, and did the scalop-y edge in the armholes too.
I LOVE the drape in the back and the feeling of it over all, also, I skiped the last 2 rows because I didn't want the overlaped crossed closing, but it's big enough to close it if I want to use a pin!

I thought I'd put the arms when the fall comes... but given the short time it took, I might make another one in a different color!!!

Happy middle of the week! and happy international Women day!!

See you soon!
