sweet marigold (wah wah wah)

ms. marigold is finished 007

i have an FO report on ravelry which evidently you can't see since it's a membership community.

here's the screenshot for y'all of the report:

here are my pattern notes:

so it's finished. i finished it yesterday, crocheting the armholes, omitting the ruffles.

and it was SO tight and inelastic because i am a remedial crocheter. so i ripped that back and did 4 rows of the k2p2 ribbing.

because i was too lazy to learn the k2p2 tubular bind off, on the last row before binding off, i added 1 stitch between the k stitches, making it k3p2 for that row, and bound off with a 5.0mm needle. i bound off the neckline and the armholes with that too, without adding the extra stitch.

it's fine. i don't love it, mostly because of the yarn. and now that i'm actually wearing the alpaca with a spaghetti strap tank underneath it i find it ITCHY. so maybe it's an autumn vest before it gets cold cold? eh...

so, i realize this looks like crap. that's another reason i don't like it that much. when there's as open a neckline as this pattern, coupled with the size of my bustline, there's little fittedness, so i'ts a big, green alpaca, itchy sack.

I am sorry to hear that you aren't happy with it! I think your idea about wearing it as a vest is a good one - alpaca in the summertime sounds way too hot to me - 'specially here in DC. Humidity = yuck
