Spiral Vest

Lion Brand® Fishermen's Wool®

GAUGE:

16 sts and 16 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in sc.

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:

rev sc (reverse single crochet) Single crochet worked from left to right (right to left, if left-handed). Insert hook into next stitch to the right (left), under loop on hook, and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all loops on hook.

NOTES:

1. Vest is worked in one piece from center of circle out to sides. Directions are provided for how to make the Vest larger. Note that the Vest is a circle, so as you increase the width, the length will also increase.
2. All rounds are worked in continuous rounds with RS always facing, and not joined at the end of each round.
3. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Fasten off old color.
4. When you see '- 12 sts' in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.


 

STRIPE SEQUENCE: Work 4 in. (10 cm) with A, 4 in. (10 cm) with B, 6 in. (15 cm) with C, then 2 in. (5 cm) with B.

Spiral Vest Reviewed by sallie williams on 2014-06-04 ***
love the spiral .... it is fun to work ... and would be a stand-out piece ... if it were not for the back .... the sections where the open work joins with the half-doubles form large dimples ... not in the least bit attractive ... have tried everything I can think of to get rid of the problem ... really want this to work ... I can see something special could come out of the pattern if this problem were addressed ... will be looking for pattern corrections....
