Katniss Sweater

If you saw the Hunger Games: Catching Fire, then you might have noticed this amazing sweater vest cover-up dealy worn by Katniss.  I sure did!

Screen Shot 2013-12-31 at 4.23.06 PM I put it in the back of my mind that I wanted to make one, and then my friend (Nicole from Owen Faye) asked if I knew how to crochet or knit so I could make THIS.

It looks like maybe Two of Wands has stopped selling the pattern? Not sure what’s going on there, but here are two similar other instant download patterns…

Enough is enough!  I have to 1. buy this pattern 2. learn to crochet 3. learn to knit 4. make this thing.

I did it!  I actually think this is a great first-timer project.  Sure, you have to learn a bunch to get the final product, but the bulky yarn makes things go fast.  Also, the whole point is to get an organic looking product.  Drop a stitch?  So what!  Katniss made hers from a BRANCH.
