Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each round/row 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 round/row, so just choose your best technique 🙂

Special stitch used: 5dc-shell stitch ( 5 double crochet stitches into same stitch or space )

This crochet vintage collared vest pattern fits size L ( chest size: 36 to 38 inches ).

Skill level: Easy

Gauge: 9 double crochet stitches x 5 rows = approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )
