Fowl weather keeping you down? Well, we've got a vest that will warm you right up. What about a project that's sure to quack you and your friends up? Don't worry - we've got a project that fits the bill.
This camouflage in Duck Huntin' Sue's vest is created by the self-patterning Uptown Worsted Tapestry. It's perfect whether you're an animal lover who just wants to watch mallards on a mild day, or for a hunting enthusiast you may know. What's a vest this special without a companion, though? That's where our delightful duck comes in! As perfect for cuddling as it is for your retriever (that is if he or she won't rip it to shreds), you'll love creating this campy project. Grab your hooks and get started as quack as you can!
