Crochet Whirlwind circle vest

Crochet Whirlwind circle vest

This simple crochet circle vest is made by light weight wool blend yarn. A type of no-brainer and relaxing crochet pattern. Still, the result is pretty nice with a whirlwind texture which gives it a trendy and sturdy look.

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 Whirlwind circle vest pattern fits size L ( chest size 36 to 38 inches )

Skill level: Easy

Gauge: 8 double crochet stitches x 4 rows approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )

    Oops. So sorry Maz Kwok. I’ve sorted it out…. I’ve only been crocheting since December so these types of patterns are quite hard for me. But I’m not one to be beaten. It’s a lovely pattern and cannot wait to finish it for my daughter. Thankyou for sharing the pattern.

    In row 13 after chaining 38, where do you put the fpdc? I cannot seem to work it out. Please help because I don’t want to abandon the project.

    Just an FYI I purchased the pattern and there are no hook sizes or materials used listed in it I had to come here to find it but it is a beautiful vest can’t wait to make it
