crochet vest in flax linen cotton virkad väst i bomull och linMy younger sister has her birthday and I couln't find any suitable present for her. What do you give to a person that has everything already? Therefore, I made a cute litte vest for her in flax (linen) / cotton. The pattern is Drops 118-26 and the yarn is from Yarn-Paradise and is named Iroko fine (70% bomull, 70% flax (=lin), 200 meter / 50 gram). I used crochet hook 3,5 mm.

The yarn was different from what I had expecte: It was dull in structure and did not glide very well on the hook. It split easily and I didn't like to crochet with it at all.The yarn felt heavy and harsh at start, but softens up as you work with it.
