Haus of Yarn in Nashville, Tennessee

I had three skeins of this yarn in my stash which I purchased from a sale bin a few years ago. It was about the right amount for a BSJ. I actually cut it really close with only 3 or 4 yards left over. I omitted the last few rows so that I could add crochet button loops rather than buttonholes. I also crocheted around the neckline. It took some searching to find suitable buttons but I am pleased with the result.

This is my 4th BSJ just because I enjoy making them! Here are my first three:

BSJ #1

BSJ #2

BSJ #3
