Snow! I finished this beast of a garment just in time for the lovely blizzard-like weather on Tuesday. I like how it came out so much that as soon as I modeled it in the mirror I decided I'm making a second one with some more Malabrigo Yarn Chunky I just happen to have lying around. If that isn't a huge stamp of approval on a pattern I don't know what is. If you like being warm and looking silly you should cook one of these up for sure.
This thing is wicked warm, really fun to wear and very easy and quick to make. If I hadn't been completely ensnared by the crack-esque nature of the sock pattern I cast on after starting this I likely would have had it done in under a week. This picture doesn't show the nice pointed bottom of the front because I wanted to take pics in the snow but my photographer was in California, but if you want to see how tall the neck is and how pointy the point is feel free to check out the pics I posted on its Ravelry project page. I love this, I have wanted something like this for so long, like before I even discovered Ravelry or knew how to make up my own patterns. Finally it is mine!
