Week-Ender Jacket

I don't know what to say about this one except my eyes hurt. Even seated, you can see that it's adding bulk around her middle. Imagine the boxy-ness of this jacket if she were standing – not exactly a flattering look!

I don't even want to think about just how long it'd take to make all those colour changes throughout too…just not worth it for this end result.

Thanks again to WNTC readers for pointing out yet *another* Annie's Attic pattern of the day.

  1. OMG! My eyes, my eyes! That is eye-searingly awful! Is that a pocket at the waistline? Didn’t the color pattern add enough bulk already? I’m getting dizzy….

  2. Might make a nice comfy straight jacket. Ironically, you’d be nice and comfy and content wearing it while the facility people go mad looking at the jacket.

  3. Gawd, that even makes her arms look fat.

    You know, I used to think I looked pretty good in boxy jackets & sweaters. That was the 80s, when everything I wore pretty much looked like ass.

  4. I just love Annie’s description of it:

    “This is the perfect jacket to take on a weekend get-away. It’s dressy; it’s casual–and it doesn’t wrinkle!”

  5. Right sweater, wrong model. Try somebody’s dotty great-aunt for it, and you may have something there. . .

  6. I think this could provoke seizures in susceptiple people!

  7. It’s such a grandma sweater. It makes the model age right before my eyes!

    The same eyes that have been blinded by that optical nightmare.

  8. Holy crap, I’m whining enough about weaving in the ends on an afghan I’m working on. I would so NOT want to be the party responsible for making one of these.

  9. it reminds me of those pictures from the 90s where you’d go kinda cross eyed and you’d see a 3-d picture… I dont want to know what the 3-d picture is

  10. At least it’s named well.

    Your weekend would definately be ended the minute you
    put that boxy, migraine induding puppy on and set out
    for a weekend of fun seeking.

    Mind you, I’m impressed by anyone who can perservere
    through all of those color changes, and not give in to just
    tying knots.

  11. I have a headache….

  12. But what would I wear during the weekday?

  13. Ha ha – your comments are great… I had a good laugh at this one!! I crochet myself.. right now I am making the deer_stalker_hat!

  14. oooww looking at that hurt my head.
    that would cause such a sweat to wear,even in winter!!!!!

    and so bulky!

  15. Gosh! I hope You don’t have to weave in all those ends.
    mabie its done like tapestry crochet, that would be eisier.. but still…..Ewww!

  16. can i get a date with it? nooooooooooooooooooooooooo ESPANTA HOMBRES!! Terrible!!

  17. Ohhh I dunno. Change out those gawd awful colors and substitute them with some soft pastels in a lighter weight yarn but still the same hook size to improve drape, some short-row-ing in the right places it could actually work up to be a new favorite sweater.

  18. This is exactly what all the farmers’ wives in my hometown wear. I believe they hand-craft them from the yarn they make from the sheep they raise on their farms.
