Happy New Year Craftster Community!!!  Kiss

Let's start this marvelous 2013 with a multicolor vintage inspired self shaped vest with granny circles to squares waistline and 14 differently colored rainbow netting all bordered with black!

Made of vintage and recycled yarns.

Closed with a replaceable long orange double faced satin ribbon.

Ok... I have to confess... I'm addicted to granny squares!  Wink

This is a great update on a tradition. Very hip. I can really see it over a black outfit. Beautiful work.

I really love this.
I think I would need a few more color panels to accommodate my, .... girth. LOL!!!! Grin (Or else have to make them much wider!)  Wink
Love the colors too and blocking them around with black makes them pop. Awesome job!

I love this. I think it would also look great with long bell styled sleeves. Cheesy  Did you find the pattern online somewhere or is it from a magazine you had? I'd love to try and make one myself!

Thank You very much!!! It is my own pattern as most of my other works... I just build them up as I go.  Wink
