Crochet Crimson collared vest

Crochet Crimson collared vest

Let me show you a new vest design-made from my favorite color and favorite crochet stitches. This vest has cable pattern at the back, simple texture at the U shape front which created a big collar. And, all you need is a chic brooch to secure the front flaps just in case.

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 stitch used:

3×3 fpdtr left cross: ( worked over 6 sts )

skip next 3 sts, fpdtr around each of next 3 sts 2 rows below, working in front of the fpdtr just made, fpdtr around each of 3 skipped sts 2 rows below.

3-1-3 fpdtr left cross: ( worked over 7 sts )

skip next 4 sts, fpdtr around each of next 3 sts 2 rows below, working behind fpdtr just made, sc in 4th skipped st, working in front of fpdtr just made, fpdtr around each of first 3 skipped sts 2 rows below.

This crochet Crimson collared vest pattern fits size XL ( chest size: 40 to 42 inches )

( Suggestion:12 skeins of material indicated )

Skill level: Intermediate

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