(Waist)Coat of Many Colours

I've finished my waistcoat. I tried to take a selfie, but that didn't really work, so I took a photo in a mirror. In retrospect, I should've made the half circles on the front the same colour on each side so that together they made a whole circle. Ah well, that's a minor point, overall I'm very happy with it.

To recap, the motif pattern is Atty's Little Dots pattern, which is here . For putting them together to make a waistcoat, I take full responsibility. It was a great way to use up short bits of handspun wool left over from crocheting blankets. It'll be warm and should brighten any Winter day!


  1. I've been watching this progressing - it's very beautiful and fits you so well! Another way of doing it would be to use a paper pattern. You're so clever!

    1. Thanks! Yes, it probably would've been sensible to use some sort of template.

  2. It's lovely. I'm tempted to start one too but I MUST finish other things first.

  3. This is absolutely delightfully gorgeous !!! And I totally agree with Maureen - you are truly clever ! Expect lots of compliments :-)
    I thought the back was going to increase downwards, hence the confusion earlier ;-P

  4. What a fabulous and fun waist coat!!!! :)

  5. You are beautiful and so is your waistcoat. Lovely creation dear. <3

  6. Love it, love it. such patience.
