My friend asked me to make her a tacky Christmas sweater. I made the sweater part and her idea is to add buttons to make a moveable nativity scene on it.

Mid-way I asked her to try it on so I could determine the length. The photo with my friend shows it before it is finished. It will actually go to about where the white shirt ends length-wise. We also decided to keep it short sleeved since it’s a warm acrylic and since it’s crochet I recommend she wear a shirt beneath it.

Here is the finished version at the proper length. It’s a deep green and I love it!

Now to figure out the  nativity scene and to add the buttons.

If you are interested in making your own sweater, I used this free pattern (the guy in the photo cracks me up!).
