Carrie, was kind enough to sponsor my newest pattern, the #162 Sweet Hooded Vest. She sent me the Berocco Ultra Alpaca (a yarn I've never had the chance to try!) in the Periwinkle Mix.
The beautiful heathery color and soft hand of this yarn inpsired me to create a long lace vest with lots of feminine touches. Amazing stitch definition really helps the two lace stitch patterns stand out! Pockets and a hood keep it casual and easy-to-wear.
Thanks, Carrie, for sponsoring this new pattern, introducing me and my audience to your pretty shop, and letting me experience this great yarn!
The Yarn Sellar is also sponsoring a fabulous giveaway!! They generously donated more Berroco Ultra Alpaca so that one of you can make this vest!
