I've been looking at all the posts for the "Drops Circle Jacket" on the crochet board and I felt an urge to make one for myself. All the ones I saw were quite colorful and I didn't feel that I could pull off such a colorful jacket so I toned mine down with shades of purple. The entire thing is done with a cotton yarn so its quite comfy  Smiley


At first I added the sleeves (altering the pattern to make them more fitted to my twig-like arms), I made the sleeves only go to a 3/4 length because I felt I would like that better than full length sleeves.





But then once I finished the sleeves and tried it on I realized that I would actually prefer it without the sleeves. So I took them off and I am now quite happy with my new (sleeveless) circle jacket  Smiley

After checking out Regretsy I'm pretty sure I could sell my stuff on Etsy.

Thank you everyone!

Lova: The pattern can be found here. It wasn't too difficult to make. The pattern is pretty much the same three rows that you just keep repeating over and over until it's big enough. Adding the sleeve holes isn't too bad either.
