  1. BACK:

Work a chain, not stretched, that reaches across the front of your body at the largest

part. If your hips are larger than your chest, make the chain so that it reaches from side

to side across the hips.

 

  1. Working in the back side of the stitch only, single crochet in each stitch across the row.

 

  1. Chain 1 and turn, working in the back side of the stitch, single crochet in each stitch across the row.

This row must end with an odd number of stitches, if not, add one extra single crochet in the last stitch.

crochet in the next stitch (working in the back side of the stitch). Repeat from* across the row, ending with

you would like the vest to over-lap.

 

  1. Stack the layers, sew the shoulder seams and the side seams.  Weave all yarn ends into the finished

work.
