Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

10 dc + 9 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm).
Flower Motif measures about 8 in. (20.5 cm) diameter.
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:

beg-Cl (beg cluster) (Yarn over) 3 times, insert hook in indicated ch and draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times (2 loops on hook); (yarn over) 3 times, insert hook in same ch and draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.
Cl (cluster) (Yarn over) 3 times, insert hook in indicated ch and draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times, *(yarn over) 3 times, insert hook in same ch and draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times; rep from * once more, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

STRIPE SEQUENCE
Work *1 rnd with D, 2 rnds with E, 1 rnd with A, 2 rnds with E, 1 rnd with B, 2 rnds with E, 1 rnd with C, 2 rnds with E; rep from * for Stripe Sequence.

NOTES:

1. Vest is worked in the rnd, from the center outwards, with slits worked for armholes.
2. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st.

Circle Vest Reviewed by Patty Berlingieri on 2011-01-12 *****
I made this for my niece and modified the armholes, using a foundation double crochet instead. Making another for her sister and then it will be my turn! It is a quick and easy project, fun to make in a few evenings. I will use a varigated yarn for my vest to save on the yarn changes.
