Mr Magnolia

This is my very latest crochet project - a patterned vest with scalloped edges. And I have named him Mr Magnolia in honour of the glorious book by Quentin Blake and the trees that are blooming on our street at the moment. Both the fine cotton and the pattern are Japanese which accounts for their loveliness. Ohhhh I can feel Spring a-coming!
