Moss Crop Top

This part 90’s bubble shirt, part sweater I bought at the Gap eight years ago, is Jigglypuff reaimagined as a sweater. Jigglypuff easily makes my top three favorite Pokemon, but pink isn’t a color that’s usually featured in my closet.

I started with a giant cone of pink DK that’s made it’s way through three stashes to date. A friend of my sister’s, to my sister, to me. I imagine it’s from a Michaels over a decade ago. I have absolutely no idea how much yarn I ate through, but if my sister lets me borrow her kitchen scale, I may be able to figure it out.
