I made this last year, but realized that I had never shared it here. Since I wore it today, it seemed like a good time! :)
I did start by using a pattern that I found online, but quickly found that I wanted to do my own thing, so I stopped following the pattern and made the rounds into whatever I thought would work best as I went. It was trial and error.
I started with a beautiful teal yarn handed down to me from my husband's grandmother, and found a small beige at the craft store to match the thickness of the yarn. I love the pop of color on the back! And being so hot-natured, I love how it looks like it is warm, but doesn't really provide a lot of heat!
