Last week the Angel Wings Pinafore was a CAL (Crochet-A-Long) project in the Our Happy CAL Place. I finished mine today - just in time for my weekly YOP post.
I have some choices of cotton-blend yarn in my stash and I look forward to making this again - most likely in a larger size. I think this would look adorable as young girl's pinafore top worn over a long sleeve t-shirt and a pair of jeans. Or even just a summer top by itself over a pair of jeans or shorts.
The yarn I used is Lion Brand's Jamie (DK weight, or size 3). It's an awfully splitty yarn and I personally don't care for it now that I've actually used it. Since I have a bit left, I think it will work well enough in a blanket (mixed with other yarns), but this Jamie yarn did not score any points with me. And I would not purchase it again. Fortunately, I only bought 3 small skeins of it on clearance once upon a time.
This was probably a good project to give the yarn a go with, though. I consider that I've made a quick and cute prototype, and now that I know how one of these pinafores is made I can adapt it to a larger size fairly easily I think.
