It is below zero here this Friday the 13th! Soooo very very cold. I am thinking Spring with this project and hoping for warmer weather. I know it will be a few more weeks of waiting yet, so in the meantime here is another finished project.
Woodland Knits from Tiny Owl Knits is once again my go to for a project. I happened to have the yarn I needed and I love the pattern. You can find the book through Amazon below: (it is an affiliate link, so you know).
The Moonbeam Duster is a quick and fairly easy knit with lots and lots of fringe! My daughter is modelling the finished item for me. See below for all information and a pattern review. I really enjoyed making this and can’t wait to wear it!
The main part of the vest is made using Malabrigo yarn in the Purple Mystery colorway. the fringe uses the leftover Malabrigo as well as a skein of Plymouth Encore DK in a lavender, 2 Regia sock yarns in purple and pink tones, a dark purple from Knit Picks Palette collection, and crochet thread in dark purple from either Aunt Lydia’s or South Maid.
Pattern Review: I would rate this as a beginner pattern. There is a little shaping in the armhole, but otherwise this is straightforward knitting. The part that takes the longest is measureing, cutting, matching and placing the fringe. I love the softness of the Malabrigo for this project, making the finished garment quite snuggly and easy to wear. It is lightweight enough to be worn for a Spring or Fall piece and would fit right in at music festivals. If you decide to make this vest/duster, let me know how it goes!
