Flowers everywhere

Hello,
As you can see, it is very springy here. We are spending as much time outside as possible theses days. I’m happy none of us are suffering from any allergies, and I’m so sorry for my brother and many others who do, and so can’t enjoy it, as there is soooo much beauty everywhere.


















































All this warm weather has got me thinking about the vest, I crocheted for myself six years ago while expecting my baby. I thought, you might find this pattern interesting for coming summer.





























Circular vest pattern









Size: EU 38 – 42 (UK 10 – 14)
Cca 110cm ( 44” ) in diameter

Materials: 550g of any 100% cotton (120m on 50g)
Hook size H/5mm
Button, needle




























Note: The material you can use is really up to you. It doesn’t need to be cotton as long as it is suitable for 5mm hook, it wouldn’t affect the size much.











Vest:
Ch 8, slst. to form the circle.
Follow the chart.
In rows 20 and 21 you should have 364 st.
In row 22 sc together equally 4times = 360 st., so the pattern works.
After 29th row we should have 510 st.
In row 30 we skip 48dcs for armholes from previous row (you can see it on the chart) and do 48ch instead. Follow by crocheting 79 sc’s and make another armhole same way as the first one and keep following the chart.
Finishing:
Sew the button on wrong side of the vest, cca 5cm from start of row 48. It’s marked on the top of the chart by a little arrow.

Don’t be scared. It only looks difficult, but when you’ll get into the pattern, you’ll find it easy.
Clara

  2. Do you have a written pattern for this vest? I am not very good at reading visual patterns.
    Thank you for your time in reading my request.

  7. Hi,
    The vest looks very nice. Is it alright for me to take the diagram and enlarge it? I am almost 70 yrs old and the diagram is a little small for these old eyes to read. Beautiful work.

  8. Looking at the pattern, I think it should have been ccw, Counter Clock Wise. The W is just above the A on the keyboard. May have been a typo.
    Love the pattern.

  9. I've gotten through row 31 but before I move onto row 32 can you tell me how many 3dc clusters I should have on row 31. Somehow I think I may have too many.
