Fugly Friday

In continuing homage to the late, great You Knit What? , I bring you this latest offering from Crystal Palace yarns:

Free pattern here.
I don't know where to begin. First, I don't like vests in general. This is personal, I know many people who do. Some of them look decent. This does not.
Why would you put a fur collar on something that goes below any reasonable bustline?
Why would you display it over another sweater, in a color that doesn't even coordinate?
And even if you did, why would you make that sweater so much higher quality and more attractive?
But then, why would you do something like this at all?
Can we please, as a knitting community, declare fun fur over?

Wow. So much word. Somehow, that last thing that does is inspire me to knit!

Honey, this IS Crystal Palace we're talking about. The home base of FUGLY! I can't believe that the copyright date is 2007 though. Can you just picture the little blue haired ladies thinking up some of these patterns & designs? Sadder still, I know women who will not only knit - but will actually WEAR - this vest.
