How cool is this?! I got it from my secret pal at the Punk Rock Gift Exchange. There were other goodies but I just had to share this. It is an acrylic wool blend. That's all it tells you, I have no idea who makes it.

I got an email from a woman (Judy) who used my pullover pattern with some changes to make this adorable sweater for her teddy bear. Since my Dad and Brother are huge Dallas Cowboy fans I thought this was the greatest. I will be making some for Christmas.
Of course you could change the colors to make your favorite teams jersey.

I finally did it, I wrote the pattern for the wedding dress. Sorry it took so long. Its a very simple dress. But you can add ribbon or sew beads on to dress it up. Use your imagination.
I used sport weight yarn, it was red heart baby econo in white. Not the best for a wedding dress but it was all I had. You could use something silkier to get a fancier effect. Just make sure it is sport or lighter worsted.
V-stitch: dc, ch 1, dc in same stitch
row 1: dc in 3rd chain from hook and in next 2 chains, work V-stitch in next chain, dc in next 5 chains, V-stitch in next chain, dc in next 8 chains, V-stitch in next chain,
dc in next 5 chains, V-stitch in next chain, dc in last 4 chains. (chain 2, turn)
row 2-4: dc in each dc of previous row, work V-stitch in each V-stitch. (chain 2, turn) at end of row 4 chain 1, turn.
row 5: sc in each dc and put 3 sc in each V-stitch. (chain 1, turn).
