Float Waist Coat

I have finished the Lace Quartz top and will post a picture soon. Now I am working on Robyn Chachula's Float Waistcoat. Over the weekend, I was organizing some books and magazines. I found this pattern from and issue of Inside Crochet and realized I have just enough Cotton Fleece. This purple has been in my stash over ten years.  This waist coat could turn our an ombre stripe as all 4 skeins are not the same dye lot.  It will be fabulous!

 I enjoy Robyn's patterns for the visual aids she includes in diagrams and charts!  For the trefoil stitch pattern, I am chaining 3, (dc, ch 2, dc, ch 3, dc, ch 2) for a smoother fabric.  My gauge for this pattern is requiring me to use an f hook.

A Week ago

A week ago Monday, right after my blog post, I went out to get more yarn,  wondering why I needed more than the patterned required,  I realized all my sizing and gauge was off.  So I ripped it all out to start again.  This time I am still finding myself paying ever more attention to the pattern and I hope to publish a finished project soon.

Well the Quartz Lace top is taking a little longer, and I am off to get more yarn.  I am almost done and it will look fabulous!
