Fashion Afghans

Note:  Today's Yarn Yuck is not a hand-made knit or crochet item.  The idea is take a (mass-produced) afghan and sew it into a jacket.  Er, excuse me, a Fashion Afghan

So, as you can see, though the "Yarn" may be lacking, the "Yuck" is still there.  In abundance.

Alright, I'll admit it.  These things could probably be quite warm and cozy (except perhaps the sleeveless "vest" design on the bottom right), but they strike me as only a shade better than a Snuggie.  It doesn't matter how you rearrange the fabric, ladies.  It still looks like you've swathed yourself in something that people would typically toss over the back of the sofa as a decorative accent.  For the home.  Back in the 1990s...   And they had the audacity to put the word "fashion" in the title!

  1. These look like throw blankets I've surely seen at Grandmas house, only with sleeves, its almost like snuggie stole their idea from this very 'pattern'
