This is what I worked on this weekend. I don't believe in patterns, even if I used a basic pattern for this pullover sweater vest. If you scroll down on my entries you will see how I began. I call the style "free form crochet". I made a base piece (shown in previous entry, below) put it on my dress form and began adding different types of yarn while crocheting right onto the form. What really inspired me was the bright pink yarn called "Flake", it's the fuzzy looking bright pink yarn. I got the yarn at Anneke's Needleworks here in South Miami. "Flake" wasn't cheap but Anneke gave me the yarn for 15% less (Thank You Anneka!) and I caved in and payed for this delicious pink yarn. It was well worth every penny. I haven't yet completed the back, I just have a small piece to go. When I complete "Pink Flake" I'll take a photo with it on so you can get the full effect. I'm really loving the direction this piece is going and I just might make a series. Leave your comments I would love to see what you think.
