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 🙂

Special stitches used:

2dc-V stitch: ( 2dc, ch1, 2dc ) into same stitch or space.

This crochet Summer air cardi vest pattern fits size L ( chest size 36 to 38 inches )

Skill level: Intermediate

Gauge: 10 double crochet stitches x 4 rows approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )

      Just decrease some repeated rows. From R4 to R58 of the back and from R4 to R55 of the front pieces 🙂

      Maz, thank you for your reply. I am currently making your oversized lacy top, in a pretty variegated yarn.
