This is a quick project thanks to the Bond! My mom knitted the front and I did the back on the Bond USM.
I have shortened the length and started with 70 stitches cast on instead of 100 like the pattern said. Did 80 stitches in the back so it would not end up too tight…
The bust panels are hand crochet and it took me about 8 hours to finish them, while we were driving to Busch Gardens, Tampa and back just before New Years.
Gosh I love those roller coasters!
Gwazi, Kumba and last but not least, Montu on which I have been 3 times in a row and would have gone again if they wouldn’t have closed the park…Good thing I have a 2008 pass and can’t wait to go back.
The lower crochet part is done after the front and back have been sewn together, using a 3.5 crochet hook.
These little Lories from Butterfly World loved the crochet top!
