What materials did you use? Handspun yarn I made in the Fluff to Stuff class, handspun I received as a gift from the Maryland Sheep and Wool, Rowan Cocoon yarn, MaggiKnits Aran Tweed, Martha Stewart Alpaca Blend and some other unnamed yarn, a Denise crochet hook.

What are you most proud of? I followed the steps for the rectangular wrap except for the wavy stitches. I used the reverse technique to make the handspun yarns show prominently. After placing the edge of sc around the border, I decided to make this a sweater vest. Used Tunisian crochet simple stitch for the front and back. Used the instructions provided in the Craftsy Course - Perfect Seamless Crazy Cardigan - to make the button band using a knitted seed stitch around the front.

I love this vest and was examining all the photos to see your steps. Then I looked closely at the toes showing on the last picture. At this moment, I have the same socks on my feet. Okay, this is clearly a project I need to do. Thank you for sharing your creation. It helps me to see how I can acquire random yarns and do something lovely with them.

I love those socks! yes, random yarns sometimes make the most interesting pieces. In the course, Jennifer shows how color choices and textures meld into a beautiful fabric. I'm looking forward to seeing your creation.
