Crochet layered lapel vest

Crochet layered lapel vest

I’ve been thinking of an asymmetrical layer design. How about a crochet open front vest with draped lapel? This idea sparked after a few hours of searching and trying. So here it is – a crochet layered lapel midi vest made by shimmering light weight yarn xD

Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/ round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each row/ round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

This crochet layered lapel vest pattern fits size L ( chest size: 36 to 38 inches )

Skill level: Easy

Gauge:  cluster of crochet stitches ( dc, ch1, skip 1 st ) x 5 times approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )
