My daughter sent me a link for this.  I'm not sure if its a hint or just knit spotting for me.  I'm not that fashion forward, but I'm curious as to what others think of it.

Well, I'm 20 years old and I wouldn't wear it, but I could totally see those who are more fashionable and younger than me (think 15-17) would absolutely wear that.  Its very cute, and I like it, but its just not my style.  I would probably take it as a hint from your daughter Wink

I'm not sure if I'd actually wear it but it looks rather interesting so I'd probably knit it.

Is this something to knit or something to buy? Because actually, I have a pattern for this! Trying to remember which book it's in... anyone? The model is sitting indian-style and the garment is two shades of green. I remember thinking, "wow, that looks fabulous... on HER." It's a great idea for a garment, in other words, but I'd never wear it.

I agree with everyone else. I think it would be very interesting to figure out how to knit and fairly interesting to knit (although that looks like a LOT of straight stitching, stockinette maybe?).

It's really cool but I think you'd have to be a pretty fashion forward person to make it work. It's one of those things that I sigh wistfully when I see it and then walk right on by.

Would I wear something like it?  Mayhaps.  Would I wear that one in particular?  Not a chance.  It's too bland.  If I was going to do that, I would need to spice it up with cables or intarsia or SOMETHING.  XP

I don't have a pattern for it.  The link is from a site selling these.  I think it might be a nice alternative to a stole or shawl.  I like the concept of stoles but I've never made one because, I'm not sure how I'd wear it.  I think it might be nice to throw on (in the house) over your shoulders, to keep chills out.

And cables would be great!

I wouldn't wear it, but I would definitely knit it.  I'm not a stole type of person and it seems like it would get in my way or feel claustrophobic, but that is just me.

DARN YOUR TEMPTATION!!!  Now I'm knitting it in a lovely fuzzy rainbow yarn. Tongue

That's very interesting!  I think it's one of those "runway" pieces of clothing.   Not something to really wear but cool  to look at.  I think it's pretty neat.
