Say Hello to the Peek-a-Boo Button Wrap

Crochet body warmer

Finally!  But, it was worth the wait, right?

Peek-a-boo Button Body Warmer

I picked up a mannequin from Xenos just to be able to show this off to you properly, and the form is just perfect.

And so is the peek-a-boo button.  Better than I ever could have imagined.  I’ll be honest, when I first ordered the yarn and the button, I hadn’t really calculated the size of the button correctly, but now I couldn’t imagine having chosen anything else.

I love how there is just enough strength in the stitch to hold the collar up at the back.  It’s always surprising just how soft and supple the Scheepjes Stone Washed is after blocking – I wasn’t sure if the collar would keep standing!

Most of all, I adore the texture of the stitch I used.  It’s a very ordinary Half double Crochet, but in alternating front and back loops, giving the design just that little bit extra texture.  Plus the stitch allows just enough stretch for the top to really mold to the shape of the figure.

Can you tell how happy I am with the result?

Coming very soon, the pattern!  I’m drafting it in multiple sizes.  So we’ll have sizes from S through to XL next week!

The pattern is now live!  You can pick it up here: Peek-a-Boo Button Wrap.  Coming soon: pattern in Dutch! OMG that’s going to be tough 😀
