Mesh Vest

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

2 repeats = 3 in. (7.5 cm) and 5 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Fsc (Foundation single crochet)
1. Ch 2 (counts as first Fsc), insert hook in 2nd ch from hook and draw up a loop; yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (the "chain"); yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (the "single crochet").
2. *Insert hook into the "chain" of the stitch just made and draw up a loop; yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (the "chain"), yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (the "single crochet"); rep from * the total number of times indicated.
shell Hdc in indicated ch-sp, (ch 1, hdc) 3 times in same ch-sp.
shoulder-inc (shoulder increase) (V-st, ch 5, V-st) in indicated st or ch-sp.
V-st (V-stitch) (Dc, ch 5, dc) in indicated st or ch-sp.

NOTES:

1. The Vest is formed from a rectangle, with openings for armholes. The foundation row forms the front and neck edges, and the last row forms the lower edge.
2. Rows are worked from the front edge, over the shoulder, and down to the back edge.
3. Increases are worked on either side of top back to shape the shoulders and causes the front edge of the rectangle to curve (around the neck).

I'm over halfway done with this vest. I tried it on and I'm so excited to finish it! This will be cute over a t-shirt. And the pattern is really fun!
