    “It’s sad, Bill. The photo shoot for that stupid vest took 3 hours and THIS is the best picture we could get.”

    Hmmm….They make fishnet stockings, why not fishnet sweater vests?

    I would pity the model if she had a decent styled hair cut. As it stands, this look might be improved with some bright yellow and orange crocheted flowers (appliqued or inserted). May be some colourful granny squares. If you’re going to be a hippy, you should go all the way!

    What’s wrong with this? I mean, who wouldn’t want a difficult-to-describe, net-like garment somewhere between a tank and a vest that is so utterly unique that you’ve never seen anyone else where such a thing and which makes you look about 20 pounds heavier around the middle?

    You’d have to be cah-razy to pass up this pattern!

    Aw, come on now. I just made a very cute, useful little soapholder that looks much the same as this!
    Okay, just kidding. The pattern really shouldn’t be allowed to be used beyond soapholders.

    I actually tried the speedhook tank w/fun fur…it was beyond awful. Your comments are too funny and unfortunately true. Anyone have a wearable pattern for the Speed Hook & bulky weight yarns?

    Suggestion: if you’re determined to crochet an article of clothing with the Speed Hook, try wearing a shirt underneath that matches or harmonizes with the crocheted item. I *KNITTED* the “shopping tunic” out of Twinkle “Big City Knits” [book] on huge knitting needles [I think they were #35 KNITTING needles] , and it looks great with the right shirt underneath. I mean, there’s gotta be hope for the “speed HOOK”!

    Um…maybe I wouldn’t wear it but I could sure use the pattern to make some chain mail for my 9 year old that wants to be a knight for Halloween. Maybe I’m not looking in the right place but if someone could point me to this pattern, I would be really appreciative!!!

    Thanks!

    Not worthwhile.
    I think its good to practice clothing shaping on…. but… not to wear… theres better pullover patterns out there..
