Compare and contrast THAT pattern with the garment on the cover of the new Teva Durham book.

Just because you CAN make somethinge doesn't mean you SHOULD.

As a matter of crochet technique, it's a tour de force.

maryse said...

i have to agree with lynne e. i'm not going to make it, but it's certainly some serious crochet.

and to "anonymous" let's not trash the girl until she's proven herself. shall we?

Umm... er... wow... I'm totally speechless... The crochet is impressive, but how did they get someone to actually put it on?

Carol said...

I'm afraid there's only one answer to that: mind-numbing quantities of alcohol.

That is Gollum, am I correct? I've seen Tolkien fans in weider garb than that.

Anonymous: It probably says a lot about me that I see that and think "Huh, that designer's not even trying to play to the medium's strengths. Where are the veins cunningly fashioned from FPDC stitches? Where are the textured stitches giving the effect of a wrinkled scrotum? Where, by God, is the retractable foreskin?"

Now the Gollum hat, that is technique.
