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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Special stitch used:

3dc-shell stitch: ( 3 double crochet stitches) into same stitch or space

3dc – cluster stitch:

Yarn over, insert your hook into next stitch. Yarn over, pull up a loop ( now you have 3 loops on hook ). Yarn over, pull through 2 loops ( now you have 2 loops on hook ).

Yarn over, insert your hook into next stitch. Yarn over, pull up a loop ( now you have 4 loops on hook ). Yarn over, pull through 2 loops ( now you have 3 loops on hook ).

Yarn over, insert your hook into next stitch. Yarn over, pull up a loop ( now you have 5 loops on hook ). Yarn over, pull through 2 loops ( now you have 4 loops on hook ).

Yarn over, pull through 4 loops on hook.

This crochet Overcast vest pattern fits size L ( chest size:ย  to 36 to 38 inches )

Skill level: Intermediate

Gauge: 7 double crochet stitches x 4 rows = approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )

    Wow! I found you at Moogly’s Hooking on Hump Day and I totally expected this to be a paid pattern. My surprise that this beautiful design was free. Thank you! I’ve pinned it and put it in my Ravelry favorites!

    My daughter loves these types of sweaters, will make a great CHRISTmas gift. Will try to put long sleeves on it because that’s what she requested.
