Crackpot Input Needed on Crackpotty Project

by Nancy

As I’m finishing the edging on my afghan and working on my hat, I’m pondering what I’d like to crochet next. I’m thinking of making myself a crochet vest.

Granny Square Vest

I like this pattern, but definitely not the colors used in the picture. So, I tried out a few samples in colors I like:

Crochet Squares Poll

Square #1 is done following the directions on the pattern with colors I like. Square #2 is a similar double crochet square from one of my crochet motif books. Square #3 is a traditional granny square. It turned out too big, so if I use it for the vest, I will probably leave off the last round. But I plan to use the light green rather than the dark green, so try to picture it smaller and without the dark green. πŸ™‚

So, Crackpots, what do you like?

    I couldn’t get to the pattern without registering at the site, which I decided not to do. That, however, will not stop me from expressing my opinion. πŸ™‚

    I think I like #1 and #2 better than the traditional granny square. That’s odd, since I love being a granny.

    #1 gives a somewhat more tailored look than the others, so maybe I like that one best.

    I do like your color choices. I think you could wear the vest with a white or yellow or blue shirt. Or light green, but that’s a less common color in shirts.

    I like #3 because I like the 4 colors. I don’t think I would like it as much in jut 3 colors. Of the other two, I like #2 best, but I have no idea why.
