I made this for my great niece for Christmas in a denim blue (had tiny white flecks like denim). So cute... her mother "stole" it almost immediately. Perhaps I can crochet a lock next time... LOL

I'd use variegated shades of purple.

I would love this in a pale blue or off white

Hello Fellow Crafters, This would look lovely in a mustard color, for the fall.

You could probably save a bit on the yarn for this by shopping at the Spinrite Yarn Factory Outlet's e-tent. They might or might not have the VH Sheepish in stock at any particular time, but they would surely have something in a similar weight, gauge & even fiber composition from one of the Spinrite family of brands (Bernat/Caron/Patons/Phentex) there. The pattern reminds me a bit of a shrug I made late this spring from 2 "granny hexagons" (the project page is up on Ravelry), but perhaps with a bit more shaping.

I think this would look fantastic in the Plumish

Hi everyone, We've updated the pattern link. Thanks for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience, --editors of AllFreeCrochet

I found the pattern.It's almost at the end of free patterns. :D

Unable to locate pattern for: Over Sized Olive Jacket By: Vickie Howell for Caron

can't bring up the pattern

I can't get the pattern. The link goes to the Caron website and when I typed in the title, it said nothing matched. Can you please fix this problem?

how do I get a printable pattern for this awesome jacket????

i can not find the pattern for the over sized olive jacket,your link is a run around

I love this sight, I have not had any trouble so far with the patterns I have used so far thank you to all who put them on here.

I would use amber as a bright pop of colour to set off my tan or between season darker tones .

I'm thinking New Year's Eve ...or any other holiday ... cover up. so how about gold? H

I think I would make this jacket in a off white or beige. To make it a little more versatile.

The link has been edited and you can now see the pattern. Thanks, AllFreeCrochet

I cannot access the pattern:(

I think you need to allow one to access the pattern

She isn't with Caron yarns anymore. She is now with Bernat yarns. If you go to her blog or http://vickiehowell.com/projects-patterns/ it is called Penny Arcade Jacket. If you click on it it will take you to a free download on Ravelry

I think where is the pattern?

I agree with "yourdestiny0001"...... where the heck is the pattern?

The pattern does not appear...it just takes you to the bernat website.

I wish you would give us patterns that are more practical. I understand that it must be difficult to keep coming up with more and more patterns but I've never seen anyone walking around in something like this. I would be afraid to wear it.
