I want this:

Budapest Nights

More specifically, I want to make this.

It's crocheted. I'm more of a knitter, but I think I can do this. I might even be tempted to buy the book (Crochet It. Love It. Wear It!) just for this pattern.

But I don't think I ever will make this.

It's not the length. It's not the sheer size of the project. Once I've finished it, I doubt I'll ever wear it (and I'll end up gifting it to my sister-in-law). See, I'm never cold enough to warrant such an item in my wardrobe.

But I can still dream about it.


  1. Black and red is such a beautiful color combination. Plus the woman in the picture has a rockin' body so she really can look good wearing it. A fat woman wouldn't look nearly as good (as with most clothes).

    I don't know how to crochet...this looks like a difficult and huge project as you've said. However, you definitely have the super crafty gene in you as I've seen some of your stuff you've posted here. I believe you could do this and would like to see it myself. looks hard. How much was it? I'm guessing $400?

  2. Very cool. Its sheer scale reminds me of my brother-in-law's Matrix jacket. Yes, he really did get a jacket made modelled on the one Neo wears in the Matrix...
