A rustic vest in a tweedy blend of warm fibers is the ultimate cozy and easy-to-wear layer.

Mary Beth Temple has been knitting and crocheting for more years than she cares to admit to.
"I design in both techniques for magazines and yarn companies, and am the author of The Secret Language of Knitters - a smart-ass knitting dictionary, and Hooked for Life: Adventures of a Crochet Zealot, a book of humorous essays for crocheters, both from Andrews McMeel Publishing; and Curvy Girl Crochet: 25 Patterns that Fit and Flatter from The Taunton Press. My offerings via Leisure Arts include DIY (Design It Yourself) Afghans and The Perfect Pillow: Ten Designs for Every Space, and I have started a new series for SoHo Publishing beginning with Simply Crochet: Easy Cowls to Crochet, available exclusively in-store at JoAnn Fabrics!
My independently published pattern line is Hooked for Life, which is available both online on Ravelry and at Patternfish.com and at your local yarn store in print. I am also a proud professional member of the CGOA (Crochet Guild of America), and former host and producer of Getting Loopy!, a weekly interactive podcast that ran on the Blog Talk Radio Network from 2008 - 2011."
