I have not seen the new Hunger Games movie, but have been in love with that cowl/vest/triangle thing since I first saw the pictures going around. I bought the yarn and pattern for this about a month ago, but finally got a chance to start it this past weekend, and finished it last night. I've never had my friends beg for a knit item as much as this one. It hurt my hands so much to make, though, that I am not sure I will let it go. I do plan to make a second one in nicer yarn, though, now that I know that I like it.

Thanks so much! And no problem! I loved this one so much from the moment I stumbled upon it on etsy. The lady had been taking ordered to make them, but made a note that she had so many orders, that she will be making them until March, she had to stop taking orders for them, lol.

It's warm and cozy and fun to wear. I've making plans for my second. I'm just trying to figure out a way to make the collar lighter, because it starts to weigh down on your shoulders, lol. It's a lot of fabric up there.
