My Dad is a big Chicago Blackhawks hockey fan and so
I started making this vest with the intention of giving it to him for Christmas.
But I liked it too much and in the end kept it for myself. (It's so hard for me to get rid of stuff!)  Cheesy

It's tunisian crocheted with a size J cabled crochet hook.

I made the back first and then did the side and front in a brighter red.
I crocheted the C and tomahawks logo and whip-stitched that on top of the front.
It's lined with a used size 3XLarge red t-shirt that I cut down the center and just sewed in.
The edges are trimmed with red Fun Fur.
At the bottom I fringed the t-shirt and added black and white pony beads.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

It is great - but what did you give your Dad then?  Cheesy. I think it is a good idea to line it, it must make it lovely warm. And the fringes and the fun fur gives it the little extra.
