Patchwork Knitting

This waistcoat was started with crochet granny squares. After I had made enough to assemble the back I thought this was just too old fashioned and despite the many colours quite boring.

Therefore I changed the crochet hook for my favourite circular knitting needles and started knitting in different directions until the right front was completed. When I found a left over granny square I used it as a centre of a knitted log cabin block which was then finished into the left front. A border knitted with short rows and a kimono collar finished the piece. Lots of colours, a bit crazy perhaps but with jeans and a white top underneath it should be ok.
