Unisex V-Neck Sweater Vests

Gentle Giant  and stout dwarf vnecks

I created this pattern to be worked by gauge & actual measurements not for any one particular size. I have made this twice. Once as a semi sew & once as a completely no sew. The smaller of the two that I made one for myself fits 2XL & the one for my gentle giant of a husband fits 3XL Tall.

I used approx. 16 oz of Coffee (MC) & 14 oz. Buff (CC) for each of the Vests

Needle sizes: 10 & 10 ½ circular needles length appropriate for your girth that you are trying to fit. I used 29” one of each for the no sew & for the semi sew version I used a mixed set of Needles as that is the set I inherited it happened to be 1- 10 & 1- 10 ½ sized pair 36” long. I use what I have on hand as I’m on a very tight income.

Since I was still a semi new comer to the knitting world, I’ve only been knitting about 4 years now; I opted to use the Double Cast on method. That way you have a more unified stitch for the beginner in you. The Pattern is written for the 2XL on the Circular Needles 1st with the Straight Needles pattern written in parentheses & Bold. With a few exceptions the Cast on Round or Row it is set up for both sizes as will The Armhole Round (row), which also converts to a semi circular round so that we may work our piece into two pieces only to join again at the shoulder seam.

Stitch Pattern: Mock Hound’s-tooth I think that is what it was called.

With MC CO 172 – 2XL (180- 3 XL) for the no sew I split them between the 2 circular needles, so I had 86- 2XL(90 – 3XL) so that I would be able to work a front & a back when it came time to switch at the armholes & beyond section of the pattern & kept track of which one was my 10” & which one was my 10 ½” that way my front could be worked on the 10 ½” one when it was time to work in parts & 86- 2XL (90 – 3XL tall) for the semi sew.

Now work in ribbing on the circular needles, I placed a marker at the beginning or end spot, & I placed another one at the midway spot so that I could work it in one unified piece (k 2, p2) around for 2” – 2 ½” either size depending if you have a short or Long torso respectively. Now for those that opted to use the semi sew you will (k2, p2,) (For the return trip it will be worked ((K, P, K2, P2, to within the last stitches making sure to end with a K) across thus creating a smoother side seam) for your Front piece & for the Back piece making sure that your ends will sew together properly so that you will have an even, & seamless seam of stitches. Since I was creating it to fit our sizes with a newly learned stitch pattern I think that is why I opted to work it as a no sew the 2nd time.

Once you have your Ribbing worked & ready to move to the next Feature working either your Front or Back Panel or your entire sweater vest. It will be done with a Mock Hound’s-tooth stitch, at least if my memory serves me correctly, I made these over 2 yrs ago & with my medical condition I don’t always remember what things are called But I do remember how I did them, since I had a tendency when I was first realizing that my memory was failing to write my patterns as I went & all even rows or wrong side rows will be worked (k, Purl across to within the last stitch, ending with a final K) turn & begin again. The instructions are the same for either size the difference is the # of stitches that you must work. I prefer the NO Sew that way my pieces of Front & back actually matched the proper Stitching & I didn’t have to worry about keeping track of MC or CC to start my sides with since it was one continuous piece.

For those of us going the NO Sew path which I prefer we will work in knit stitch only, for those that are working with the straight needles follow the directions typed in bold.

Ø Round (Row) 1: Sl 1, K2, Sl 1, K2, around in MC or across if on the Straight needles this is to change from our ribbing to our new pattern stitch.

Ø Round (Row) 2: K around in MC & (K, Purl across to within the last stitch then K) turn.

Ø Round (Row) 3: Join CC, K2, Sl 1 MC, K2 CC, Sl 1MC, repeat around or across

Ø Round (Row) 4: K around using only your CC, or (k, Purl across to within the last stitch than K) turn.

Ø Round (Row) 5: Sl 1 CC, K2 MC, Sl 1 CC, k2MC, around or across depending

Ø Round (Row) 6: K around using only the MC, or (k, Purl across to within the last stitch than K) turn.

Ø Round (Row) 7: K2 CC, Sl 1 MC, K2 CC, Sl 1MC, repeat around or across depending

Ø Round (Row) 8: K around using only your CC, or (k, Purl across to within the last stitch than K) turn.

Ø We now continue in this established pattern of stitches Until Round(Row) 69, Armhole openings staying in pattern

Ø Round (row) 70: For those of us that have been working on the 2 circular Needles it is now time to decide which is your front & which is the back, Remember that whichever section has the 10” circular needle is the back & the 10 ½” circular will be your front that way it will provide the proper easements that are required for your chest & girth at the belly sections. We may now remove our 1st marker & Bind off 12 stitches staying in pattern, k across still in pattern the next 74- 2XL (78- 3XL), Now you should be able to work your remaining stitches from your 2nd marker as follows Bind off 12 Stitches thus creating the 2nd armhole opening, staying in established pattern k across your remaining 74-2XL (78-3XL) & yes you no longer at this time need your marker left.

Ø Work your Back panel 74- 2XL (78- 3XL) stitches evenly alternating between Knit rows for the right side of work & purl rows for wrong side of work & remember that we work 2 rows in MC & than 2 Rows in our CC for approx. 10”(25.4 cm) armhole opening. Do NOT Bind off we will use a 3 needle bind off method for joining our shoulder seams.

Ø Work your Front panel even on the arm hole opening side, but at the center you will be decreasing & staying in pattern to best of your ability one side then the other, You will work your left panel from armhole to center & the right panel from center to armhole as follows: Remember to stay in pattern so k, until within the last 2 stitches of our left panel then; k2together for your decrease at the center, turn, K, p35- 2 xl (p 38- 3 xl), k) stitches still staying in pattern we will purl evenly across to armhole. Repeat in this manner staying within the color scheme & pattern already established from waist to armhole opening, until you have 6”(15.2 cm) width for shoulder to neck opening, then work across these stitches evenly until your piece from beginning of armhole opening to top of shoulder at neckline measures approx. 10”(25.4 cm) in length. Do NOT bind off but retain on needle when possible for the 3 needle bind off & shoulder seaming. Repeat the established pattern for your right side only we begin at the center with our (k2tog, k across the stitches retaining the pattern established to the armhole opening & then we purl back to the center evenly upon the remaining stitches, Repeat in this manner staying within the color scheme & pattern already established from waist to armhole opening, until you have 6”(15.2 cm) width for shoulder to neck opening, then work across these stitches evenly until your piece from beginning of armhole opening to top of shoulder at neckline measures approx. 10”(25.4 cm) in length. Do NOT bind off but retain on needle when possible for the 3 needle bind off & shoulder seaming.

Ø Once we’ve reached our desired armhole opening length we will need to turn our wrong side out & hold our front panel at the armhole opening together to our back panel & use a 3 needle bind off to join across the 6” width of shoulder, then we will also bind off the neckline of unused stitches until we reach our other shoulder at the neckline to the armhole opening while binding together. Cut Yarn leaving enough to sew unfortunately every one no matter if you chose to do the Little/ No sew pattern or the All sew pattern method. Have to sew their decorative edging onto the neckline & armholes.

Ø Back Panel: Bind off 6, staying in pattern, (k, p72 (76), across k, then bind off your last 6 stitches, work evenly until the armhole opening is approx. 10“(25.4 cm) in length, Do not bind off until working the front to the back panels leave on needle when possible & if not slip to stitch holder until ready for completing the vest, cut yarn leaving enough to use for a 3 Needle Bind off method to form a nearly invisible seam.

Ø Front Panel: Bind off 6, staying in pattern, (k, p35- 2 xl (p 38- 3 xl), k) slip these 37- 2 xl (40 – 3xl) stitches to a stitch holder to be worked after you have completed your other front side, (k, p 35(38), k) then bind off your last 6, cut yarn leaving enough to use to sew together later. See Direction above for those that have been working in the rounds. For Pattern instructions

For those that have opted to create the full sew pattern you will need to sew along the side seam from waistline to armhole opening; Since you’ve already used your 3 needle bind off method to join your shoulders to your back panel.

Ø Decorative trim for the neckline & armhole opening are worked in your MC & in a ribbing of K2, P2, If you prefer as little sewing as possible you may use your circular needle #10 to pick up evenly spaced stitches around the entire armhole opening & carefully, create your trim of approx. 1 ½” in width. For those that prefer to work the ribbing & then sew it to your work you may do so as well. You will need 1- 34”- 36” (86.4 – 91.4 cm) for the Neckline; & 2- 26”-28” (66 – 71.1 cm) edgings 1 for each armhole opening. I opted to the sew method for my 1st vest & opted the Pick & go method for my 2nd vest. I started the neckline at the center & picked up from front right up to shoulder across the neck opening to left shoulder, down the left neck opening, I used a k2tog at the center front to keep the work smooth. Now for the armholes I started at the lower center & picked up along the bottom edge, increase 2 at the side corners to make it a more smooth transaction to become a more circular opening than the square that I created, up the armhole to the shoulder seam, & back down the other side to the center of the armhole opening at the base.

Now if you’ve opted to create your trim separately as I did for the smaller sweater vest, you will need to create a length of trim 1- 34”- 36” (86.4 – 91.4 cm) for neckline & 2- 26” – 28” (66 – 71.1 cm) for the armhole openings We will begin in the same fashion as the no sew method, we attach the neckline at the bottom center on the right side of work & sew into place the edge to the left front panel at the v junction, across & up the right side panel across the length of the trim, up to the neckline of the back panel, around & down the left front panel ending with the left edge overlapping slightly the right front edging & fasten the side of the edge to the right front.

Now on the armhole openings trim I opted to join the two ends together before I sewed it to the vest, & I started joining the trim at the bottom center & work the piece evenly around the entire armhole.

That’s assuming that all are right-handed.

These are the basic old fashioned beginning of your next row/rounds. I’ve modernized or created stitches to replace them that worked more effectively & maintained the patterns more evenly for me. You will come across these in the patterns. These make it easier to keep straight edges & find the beginning of the row/round more easily too. They also help when you have chained spaces following directly after your turning/joining stitch. I also use the Foundation stitches which create the chain & stitch all at the same time.

Beginning Single Crochet (BegSC): Turn your work if you’re working in row format without making the chain 1, insert your hook directly into the stitch below your hook, draw up a loop, yo(yarn Over) draw through both loops. BegSC made. If you’re working in rounds, you will merely, insert your hook into the joining stitch, draw up a loop, yo, draw through both loops, & proceed to your next stitch. Looks just like all of your other sc’s within your pattern.

Beginning Half-Double Crochet (BegHDC): Turn your work if you’re working in row format without making the ch 2, insert your hook directly into the joining stitch, draw up a loop, yo, draw through both loops, ch 1, proceed to the next hdc. If working in rounds as you see you will not be making the ch 2 before proceeding you will yo, insert your hook directly into the joining stitch, draw up a loop, yo, draw through all loops, proceed to the next hdc. Thus creating hdc & appearing just like all other hdc’s within your pattern. Your next hdc will be made in a similar fashion, you will yo, insert your hook in spot indicated, draw up a loop, yo & draw through all loops on the hook. Equals 1 ½ sc stacked.

Legs (Make 2): Dependent upon length vs. width measurements. Both measurements equal = Square shape, 1 larger than the other = Rectangle shape. The legs are worked length by width, Not width by length.

Don’t fret if you’ve always had to have a tailor or seamstress create or adjust for you because God created each of us individually, I’ve set up my charts so that we can create a perfect fit to our individual needs. Just find the lengths needed for your inseam based on your need & create legs that will work for you. Sorry I’m speculating on several of these sizes based on my research. I’ve designed them to fit for a few sizes at a time. Now once you’ve found your appropriate size in my graphs, you will now create your legs. (Example: The number of rows to achieve your legs width that you are attempting to fit. So a 12”l x 12” w square with a 5sc x 5row gauge will need to work 60 sc for 60 rows.) Now my gauge chart is set up for cm and inches and is rounded to the nearest row or stitch depending. Now let’s say you’re an adult with a 24” waist, you’re only 3’0” tall, if I’ve done my math correctly you will need xx-small with a 15.5” x 15.5” square x 2 = 1 for each leg. If I didn’t do my match correctly I’m sorry but this was my hypothesis, based on my research.

v Foundation Row: BegSC, sc # of stitches needed to achieve your needed length in your gauge. Please consult the linked charts for further assistance. Do NOT ch 1, just turn. As a reminder please see attached special stitches.

v Row 2 + beyond: Continue to work BegSC, followed by the #of stitches to create your needed length.

v Finishing Leg: Fold the square or Rectangle in half so that the beginning row meets the ending row, sl st through back loops only, this will provide slight additional easement if necessary. Once you’ve reached the other end, you will begin working around the leg opening with Sc stitches 1 per each row worked, fasten off & repeat for your 2nd leg. However, on the 2nd leg do not fasten off, we will begin joining our legs together & working them from crotch to waist.

Some of us have one leg longer or shorter depending on how you view the manner in which you were constructed & I’m right-handed so I’ve written my pattern to be worked as if we are all right-handed I know that we are not. So please adjust accordingly for you needs.

From Crotch to Waist chart – (depends on how your torso to leg ratio + your girth)

Average = evenly divided; our Almighty Lord created us individually, so find the best fit for you not based on your age group you can compare your height to the heights within the age groups to determine your best fit.

With our Preemies their sizes vary drastically from a super micro to just barely newborn in length. So their tiny little waist sizes & crotch measurements vary just as drastically.

Crotch to Waist: Joining the Legs to the Waist (I’ve written for right-handed as that is what I am. Make your adjustments accordingly. Just as if you have one leg longer or shorter than the other will determine which one you will start with.) The one & only seam will appear to the rear of us.

v Begin with appropriate leg to be on the right of your body in hand with the buttocks facing you, BegHDC, foundation hdc, insert hook into the same stitch & the seam stitch of the other leg & work a hdc this will be our crotch increase & joining of the two legs, hdc in the seam stitch, hdc in each stitch around that leg to the crotch stitches just formed, work evenly in the 2 stitches, hdc around the leg to the BegHDC, sl st to join. (# of stitches = to your waist/hip dimension + 4 crotch stitches. (Ex: 124hdc))

v BegSC, sc evenly around total # of stitches. SL st to join. (ex. = 124sc)

v BegSC, sc, (hdc2tog), sc evenly around to the other side of the crotch, work another (hdc2tog) sc around to the BegSC, SL st to join. (120sc,2hdc)

v BegHDC, (hdc2tog), hdc around to the remaining crotch stitches (hdc2tog), hdc to BegHDC, sl st to join. (120 hdc)

v BegSC, sc evenly around, sl st to join. (120 sc)

v Continue to work evenly until your desired distance from crotch to waist line is achieved. In the following sequence of rounds. Next round: HDC, Next 2 rounds: sc, next round: hdc, next round: sc; repeat these 5 rounds until your desired length is reached. To create our drawstring space, we will work 1 additional round alternating between sc & fptc will be worked around the stitch 2 rounds below, sl st to join & fasten off, hide ends. The draw string is created by ch 12, work 2 sc in each ch to beginning, ch a length + 10” for around your waist, ch 12, work 2 sc in each of the final stitches, than sl st back to the 1st curly q end. Fasten off & weave through the belt loops at the waist. (Ex: if you have a 24” waist you will make the curly q end, ch a length of ch 34” in length than add the last 12 ch to create your other curly q tip, and sl st back to your 1st curly q tip & fasten off.)

Crochet Stitches & abbreviations that will be used:

v Ch– Chain SC– single crochet HDC– Half-Double crochets DC– Double crochets

v Beg SC– Beginning Single crochet(loop on hook starts the sc, in rows make sure you turn your work 1st, in rounds make sure you’ve sl st before, inserting your hook into the same space, yo, draw up loop, yo, draw through both loops). Beg HDC – Beginning Half Double Crochet – (starts the row or round the same as a Beg Sc but on your next stitch you work a normal HDC. Beg DC – Beginning Double crochet(start with a beg sc + ch 1) I prefer these over the simple chains as these make for smoother edges & are easier to work with then attempting to count ch stitches for my eyes anymore.

v Foundational Sc Foundational HDC Foundational DC – These are used as directed since I have a problem now days with keeping long chains from twisting. I use them as my bases. I will provide special instructions within the pattern on the 1st & any other specially handled stitch such as a joining.

v FPDC – Front Post Double crochet (YO, Insert hook away from yourself, around the stitch, then back towards yourself, Yo, draw up loop , yo, draw through 2 loops, yo, draw through remaining loops)

v BPDC – back Post Double crochet (Yo, Insert hook towards you from the back of work, then away from yourself, yo, draw up loop, yo, draw through 2 loops, yo, draw through remaining loops)

v Sl st – slip stitch YO – Yarn over SK – skip Sp – Space

v FLO – Front loop only (the loop of previous row/round closest to yourself)

v BLO – Back loop only (the loop of the previous row/round farthest from you towards the back of your work)

v FPSC – Front post Single crochet(Insert hook away from you around the stitch instructed, draw up loop, yo, draw through both loops)

v FPT – Front post Treble crochet(YO twice, insert hook away from yourself around stitch instructed, then back towards yourself, yo draw through 2 loops, yo draw through 2 loops, yo, draw through last loops)

v SC2Tog or (Begsc2tog this stitch will be described with 1st appearance) – Single crochet 2 together – decrease made

Knit Stitches & abbreviations

v Double CO – Double Cast On – This is a very easy co on method it helps beginner knitters maintain a more even pattern of stitches until they are accustomed to gauging yarn.

v K– knit

v BO– Bind Off

Crocheted Buttons (Optional- dress is designed to fit either direction) I’ve opted this time to have my buttons show. Please see Dress pattern below for more details.

v Ch 4, add 7 more DC into the 4th ch from hook, sl st to join

v BLO, Dec 1 stitch evenly around; Dc2tog 4 times; before sealing shut add button to hold shape, sl st to seal, Fasten off leave enough of a tail for sewing into place later on the bodice.

I-Cord

Knit version: Double CO 3, do not turn needle keep the yarn to the left of your work, slip stitches to other end to work. K across these stitches, switching only the empty needle to repeat until your cord is 48” in length. BO all stitches. Hide tail within the tube/cord. I preferred the slenderness of this cord.

Crochet version: with smallest hook available – Ch 3, sl st together. Sc in each ch around, sl st to join, being careful pull stitches upward to form a tiny tube, continue to sc around these 3 stitches until your cord measures 48” in length. This cord is just slightly thicker but just as effective. SC3tog & fasten off, hide tail within the tube/cord.

Darling little slip-ons (Make 2)

v Ch 4, Sl st to form ring.

Thus creating a perfectly finished waistband of belt loops.

v The next series of stitches will be worked in our newly formed base we will be alternating between Semi-shell pattern #1 & Semi-shell pattern#2. Please follow carefully, as the chain between patterns will grow on every other round & then be worked even the following round until Round 11 & 12 when the maximum chain length is reached all following rounds will be worked with ch 5 in between each pattern set. My dress is designed to be lay just above the knee & ends on Round 18. You add as many rounds to your desired length is reached. Before adding the final Fan trim to the dress.

Our dress is now complete. As I stated this is a versatile design it may be worn either direction, if you opt to have your buttons on the back I will recommend that you do no cover them on the Infant dress as when they roll over the buttons may possibly misalign their fragile backs. Then you may want to decorate the panel between the shoulders to reflect that it is now the front of your dress. I suggest that you try different positions for your waistband bow as well for more versatility.

Frilly Bloomers/Diaper Cover: This is my 1st attempt to creating, so I’ve not tried this pattern out until my little grandniece receives it for Christmas. They may require more snaps to hold the crotch shut while where a diaper & crawling about. And if they are just bloomers I do suggest that you not use the snap fasteners but actually sl st both the front & back crotch sections together & trim the leg openings with a frilly trim, if they happen to be potty trained & wearing Big Girl trainers or patties, as we did for the sleeves of the Dress & the ruffle on the back of these & around the bodice.

Materials:

v Bernat Baby Sport Yarn 1skein 12.30 oz / 350 g/1256 yd / 1148 m – Sherbet or your choice of colors. & Small amounts of the yellow & mint used for decorating.

v 4 – “0” or “1” sized snaps not sure exactly as mine were no longer on their original card & I tried to measure them against the only sizing card that I had held onto & they seem to fit both diagrams; we may need more I’m not sure how effective these will be since I’ve not tested this out. You can place up to 4 snaps across the crotch to seal shut. Or you may convert them to pretty bloomers for those that are potty-trained.

v 3 – 9/16” buttons any color if you are going to cover & make them into the crochet button, or colors to match outfit

v (optional items)1 ½ yds grosgrain ribbon in color of your choice if you want to substitute for the I-cord & 2 – detachable stich markers

v 1 pair double pointed #3 knitting needles for creating the I-cord

Crochet Stitches & abbreviations that will be used:

v Ch– Chain SC– single crochet HDC– Half-Double crochets DC– Double crochets

v Beg SC– Beginning Single crochet(loop on hook starts the sc, in rows make sure you turn your work 1st, in rounds make sure you’ve sl st before, inserting your hook into the same space, yo, draw up loop, yo, draw through both loops). Beg HDC – Beginning Half Double Crochet – (starts the row or round the same as a Beg Sc but on your next stitch you work a normal HDC. Beg DC – Beginning Double crochet(start with a beg sc + ch 1) I prefer these over the simple chains as these make for smoother edges & are easier to work with then attempting to count ch stitches for my eyes anymore.

v Foundational Sc Foundational HDC Foundational DC – These are used as directed since I have a problem now days with keeping long chains from twisting. I use them as my bases. I will provide special instructions within the pattern on the 1st & any other specially handled stitch such as a joining.

v FPDC – Front Post Double crochet (YO, Insert hook away from yourself, around the stitch, then back towards yourself, Yo, draw up loop , yo, draw through 2 loops, yo, draw through remaining loops)

v BPDC – back Post Double crochet (Yo, Insert hook towards you from the back of work, then away from yourself, yo, draw up loop, yo, draw through 2 loops, yo, draw through remaining loops)

v Sl st – slip stitch YO – Yarn over SK – skip Sp – Space

v FLO – Front loop only (the loop of previous row/round closest to yourself)

v BLO – Back loop only (the loop of the previous row/round farthest from you towards the back of your work)

v FPSC – Front post Single crochet(Insert hook away from you around the stitch instructed, draw up loop, yo, draw through both loops)

v FPT – Front post Treble crochet(YO twice, insert hook away from yourself around stitch instructed, then back towards yourself, yo draw through 2 loops, yo draw through 2 loops, yo, draw through last loops)

v SC2Tog or (Begsc2tog this stitch will be described with 1st appearance) – Single crochet 2 together – decrease made

v SC3Tog or (begsc3tog this stitch will be described with 1st appearance) – Single crochet 3 together – decrease made

v Inc– Increase by 1 stitch each end or as directed Dec – Decrease by 1 stitch or as directed.

v DC2Tog- Double crochet 2 together – Decrease made

v Semi-shell Pattern#1 – (DC, Ch2, 4 DC; all in the same space indicated)Beginning Semi-shell Pattern#1(Beg dc, ch 2, 4 DC; at beginning of rounds)

v Semi-shell Pattern#2 – (4 DC, ch2, dc; all in the same space indicated)Beginning Semi-shell Pattern#2 (begdc+3dc, ch 2, dc; at beginning or rounds)

I-Cord

Knit version: Double CO 3, do not turn needle keep the yarn to the left of your work, slip stitches to other end to work. K across these stitches, switching only the empty needle to repeat until your cord is 48” in length. BO all stitches. Hide tail within the tube/cord. I preferred the slenderness of this cord.

Crochet version: with smallest hook available – Ch 3, sl st together. Sc in each ch around, sl st to join, being careful pull stitches upward to form a tiny tube, continue to sc around these 3 stitches until your cord measures 48” in length. This cord is just slightly thicker but just as effective. SC3tog & fasten off, hide tail within the tube/cord.

Darling little slip-ons (Make 2)

v Ch 4, Sl st to form ring.

v Beg DC + 2 DC, ch 3, 3 DC, ch3, 3 DC, ch 3, 3 DC, DC in top of the Beg DC to create a new starting point & end this round.

Mauve 2 pc. Skirt Set

Mauve 2pc

This pattern was written for a customize fit of Girl 12Yrs, but may be customized to fit Baby/Toddler/girl/Teen/Tween or Woman including those of us that are of the more queenly shapes.

Unfortunately I only have knowledge of how much yarn is required to repeat the exact size I made. This is customizable Skirt waist fits up to 36”(91.4 cm) waistline. The length is 20”(50.8cm) but your 12 yr old maybe shorter or taller than mine. I made it to fit waist to the knee. So you may want to adjust according to desired length by subtracting rows or adding rows. However, there are 2 decreases of 40 stitches you maybe able to adjust that within your requirements by evenly dividing the stitches between your work, from Fancy Fringe to Waistline. And the vest measurements are to fit a 36” (91.4 cm) bust line, not all 12 yr olds are that broad. So if you need to make modifications you may. Our family has a variety of mismatched lengths to age, so I’ve always customized all of my patterns to fit all members. I use the Gauge to meet my needs. I may not really be making the exact size that you expect to create; I go by the measurements of my intended recipient. So if you can’t meet my gauge at least use your own gauge & meet your measurements for your items.

Special Notes: Join yarn with an extended tail avoiding the nasty knots & having to keep track of a right side & wrong side of material made. As my eyesight is failing, & most of our family members have super sensitive skin I avoid knotting altogether. I generally leave about ½ “to an 1” of the previous skein, or when joining yarn to a new section of stitches, & work over the end(s) to secure the stitches & yarn in place. Since I didn’t write my pattern as I went I’m attempting to write it without creating a 2nd one of this same size. And my memory isn’t quite what it use to be so if the counts of the rows don’t seem to match up please let me know & I will attempt to fix the counts. But to the best of my knowledge & counting ability with my vision I’m writing exactly how I worked it. However, at any point if the counting is off please notify me & I’ll see how to help you to achieve your masterpiece.

Foundation Crocheting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZrabIcA8C8 , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGPkRHF0rUw&feature=related ; I prefer to use the Foundation stitches as I don’t have the tendency to accidentally twist them when I form rounds. I’ve included links as I’m not sure I can explain how to create them as the videos may be able to instruct.

Skirt will be worked Fancy Fringe on the Base Round 1st, then we will flip the Fancy Fringe & work on the other side of the Base Round upward to our waistline.

Base Round:

Ch 3, ( YO, insert hook into 3rd ch from hook(pinch the ch lightly but firm enough to hold), pull up another loop onto you hook, now switch to pinching that loop as you did the other, draw through another loop, now draw through another loop of yarn through 2 loops on hook, draw through another loop through the last 2 loops on hook) 2nd foundation HDC created, now repeat for another 217 times, then we will YO, insert the hook into the last base & the very 1st base stitch, draw a loop through, draw another loop through 2 of the loops on the hook, draw another loop through the remaining loops on hook, sl st to top of beginning HDC, making sure not to twist the newly created Foundation Band. So much easier to avoid than if we had created a chain of this length, and then had to work our HDC to form the base. Our Base Round = 220 Foundational HDC.

Fancy Fringe:

Ø Round 1: sc in joining stitch,*ch 5, sk 3, sc in next stitch, * repeat this pattern around the length of base, ending with a ch 2 & DC in the beginning sc, thus creating a new starting point.

Ø Round 2: *Picot, ch 3, 5 DC in center sc of next loop, ch 3, * repeat this established pattern around the base, ending with SL st into the beginning sc of the 1st Picot & in to the center stitch of the ch 5 of the Picot, new starting position created.

Ø Round 3: *Sc in this new starting point, ch 4, ( DC, ch 1) in top of the next 4 DC of previous round, ending with a DC in the 5th DC, ch 4, *now repeat this established pattern around the base round, ending with a T into the beginning sc of this round, creating another new starting point.

Ø Round 4: Beg T, *(T +ch 2) in top of each of the next 4 DC of previous round, T in the last DC, * repeat this established pattern around, always removing the ch 2 between the 1st & last T of each section, ending with a HDC into the Beg T. Thus creating yet another starting point.

Ø Round 5: sc in newly formed starting point, *ch 5, sc in next ch 2 space, * repeat this established pattern around ending with a SL st into the beginning sc.

Ø Round 6: sc in each stitch around ending with SL st in the beg sc & the next 2 sc, creating a new beginning point.

Ø Round 7: Repeat round 2, ending with a SL st into the beginning sc, Fasten off. Weave end to hide.

Flip to work the other side of the Base Foundation Round

Skirt Body:

Ø Round 1: Join yarn as described in the special notes above in any of the many base stitches available, work a sc in this stitch that you chose, now remember you will need to hold the tail so that it may be hidden as you work this round, *sk 2, (shell), sk 2, sc, * now repeat this pattern around this base round, ending with a sl st into the beginning sc.

Ø Round 2: (Beg Shell), sc top of previous rounds shell,(shell) in divot, * sc, (shell), * repeat this newly established pattern around, ending with a sl st into the Beg DC of the Beg Shell, & sl st to the center DC of the shell, new starting point established.

Ø Round 3: Sc in starting point, (Shell), *sc on top of next shell, (shell), *repeat this pattern around ending with a SL st in beginning sc.

Ø Round 4 & all even rounds to round 8: Repeat round 2

Ø Round 5 & all odd rounds to round 9: Repeat round 3

Ø Round 10: Work sc in the starting point & over the next 8 spaces, Sc2tog, *sc in the next 9 spaces, Sc2tog, * repeat in this manner around, we would have decreased a total of 20 stitches, ending with a SL st into the beg sc, & the total count of spaces should be 200sc.

Ø Round 11: sc in joining stitch, *sk 1, (shell) sk 1, sc, *repeat this around ending with a sl st into the beginning sc

Ø Round 12: (Beg Shell), Sc on top of shell, *(shell) in divot, sc,* repeat this around ending with a sl st into the Beg DC of the Beg shell, & in to the center DC of the shell, new starting point

Ø Round 13: Sc in starting point, *(shell) in divot, sc top of next shell of previous round, * repeat around ending with a SL st in Beginning sc.

Ø Round 14 & every even round to round 18: Repeat Round 12

Ø Round 15 & every odd round to round 19: Repeat Round 13

Ø Round 20: Sc in starting point & in the next 7 spaces, sc2tog, * sc in next 8 spaces, sc2tog, * repeat around ending with a SL st into the beg sc, & now we should have 180sc.

Ø Round 21: Sc in joining stitch, * SK 1, (Shell), SK 1, sc, * repeat this around with a SL st into the beginning sc.

Ø Round 22: (Beg Shell), sc on top of shell, *(shell) in divot, sc,* repeat around ending with a sl st into the Beg DC of the Beg Shell & in to the center DC of this shell, new starting point

Ø Round 23: Sc in starting point, *(shell) in divot, sc in top of next shell of previous round, * repeat around ending with a SL st in beginning sc.

Ø Round 24 & every even round to round 36: Work same as Round 22

Ø Round 25 & every odd round to round 35: Work same as Round 23

Belt Loop Round

Ø Round 37(1): Sc in starting point, *ch 5, sc top of next shell, * repeat around ending with a ch 2 & DC in beginning sc of this round, thus creating a new starting point & the necessary 29 belt loops for the adjustable waistline

Top Fringe of the Waistline

Ø Round 38(1): Sc evenly around the previous belt loop round, you should have 180SC total, ending with a SL st to the 1st sc of this round.

Ø Round 39(2): Sc in joining st, *sk1, (shell), sk 1, Sc,* repeat around ending with sl st in be sc

Ø Round 40(3): Beg Shell, *sc, (shell), sc,* repeat around ending with a sl st to the BegDC of the Beg Shell, Fasten off & weave end to hide. Now if you’ve been adding the skeins as needed using my trick you won’t be able to tell if the skirt is inside out or right side in at this point without the belt attached that is.

Decorative belt with Curly Q Tassels

Ø Starting with the making of the 1st curly Q, ch 42, insert your hook in the 3rd ch from hook, draw up loop, yo, draw through all loops on hook (sc), sc in same ch again, now work 2 sc in each ch upward until you’ve reached you beginning ch; now the real fun starts, *ch 1, turn, sc, as I mentioned in the gauge above it takes approx. 5 stacked sc to =1” so keeping on stacking those sc in this fashion until you reached your limit your piece should measure about 44”( 111.8 cm) from Curly Q tassel to where you need to start chaining again for your other decorative Curly Q tassel. Well at least that is how long I made mine as I didn’t really keep track of mine, before I decided that I needed to make the other tassel. Just like you made your 1st tassel ch 42, insert your hook in the 3rd ch from the hook, draw up a loop, yo, draw through all loops on hook (sc) place another sc in same ch, now work your 2 sc in each ch back up to the stack of sc, we will end with a sl st into the last of our stacked sc. Fasten off & weave end in to hide. Our belt should measure Curly Q tassel tip to Curly Q tassel tip 50” (127 cm)

Ø Now that you have your belt & skirt done, you may weave the belt in & out of your loops starting at the front center loop when the skirt is folded in half; & you will end up weaving the end back through this same loop to have the proper spot to tie the belt.

Vest

The vest is made in a similar fashion as the skirt with the exception that it is still worked in rows not rounds.

Foundation Base

Ø Create a Foundational Base Row of 180 Foundational HDC. As we did with the skirt we will work both sides of this foundation row. Approx. 36” or (91.4 cm)

Fancy Fringe: As with most things made with rows we have to take a turn on the end of each one so things are just a tad different here. When we’ve reached our 180Foundational HDC, we will ch 1, & Turn.

Ø Row 1: sc in same spot as your turning ch, *ch 5, SK 3, sc, * repeat across until you’ve your 1st foundational HDC; work a final sc into it. If you’ve proper skipped & sc you will end up at that spot. SL st to the ch 5 space.

Ø Row 2: Work a Picot, *ch 3, 5 DC in next ch 5 space, ch 3, Picot, * repeat across to the other end finishing with a Picot in the last ch 5 space. Sl st to center of the picot, new starting position, turn

Ø Row 3: Beg T, *(DC, ch 1)in the next 4 DC, DC in the 5th DC of previous row, ch 4, sc in top of next picot, * repeat this across to the other end, ending with T in top of the last Picot of the previous row, new starting position created, turn

Ø Row 4: Beg T, (ch 2, T in next DC), repeat 3 times, ch2, T in the last DC,* (T in the next DC of the next series of DC , ch2) repeat 4 times, T in last DC, * repeat this across to your last DC, Ch 1 turn

Ø Row 5: Sc in turning st, Ch 5, sc in next ch 2 space, *ch 5, Sc in next ch 2 space, * repeat across ending with a sc in the final 2ch space. Ch1 Turn

Ø Row 6: Sc in each sc & ch sp across, turn, SL st to the center st, new starting point created.

Ø Row 7: MPicot, *ch 3, 5 DC in center sc of next loop, ch 3, MPicot, *repeat this across ending with an MPicot in the last center sc of the last loop. Fasten off & hide the end with a weave.

Get Ready, Get Set, 1, 2, 3, Flip

We are now ready to begin the main body of the Vest.

Main Body

Gentle Reminder about the joining; please refer to the special notes, I don’t join in the conventional way, I’m not into knots, I use an extended tail method.

Ø Row 1: Sc in the top of the 1st HDC with the extended tail as we did for the skirt, *SK 1, (shell), SK 1, sc in the next st, *repeat across ending with a sc in the last stitch on the foundation base, turn

Ø Row 2: Beg ½ shell, sc in to of next shell from previous row,* (shell) in the divot, sc, * repeat across until you’ve reached the other side & you will need to finish with a ½ shell in the last sc of the previous round, ch 1, turn

Ø Row 3: Sc in the turning stitch, *(shell) in the next divot, sc on top of the shell created in the previous row, * repeat across ending with a sc in top of the beg DC of the Beg ½ Shell of the previous row, this will ensure a straight & even edge for the front panels on each side, turn

Ø Row 4 & all even rows to Row 20: will be worked like Row 2 until piece reaches your desired length to armhole opening, Mine is 8” (20.3 cm)once again, my niece has an extra long torso

Ø Row 5 & all odd rows to Row 19: will be worked like Row 3 until your piece reaches your desired length to the armhole.

At this point we will fold our piece as if to wear a vest having two front panels & a center back panel. Front Panel 1= 9”(22.9 cm) in width, Back Panel = 18”(45.7 cm); Front Panel 2 = 9”(22.9 cm). We will now be placing Markers to determine where the armhole should be placed. Measure 8” from either end, Place Marker (PM), measure 2”, PM, repeat for the other end. We have now placed our markers for the armhole openings.

If you’ve followed my instructions & not modified by adding or subtracting rows you should be at the same side of the piece as I am. And since we’ve not fastened off at the end of Row 20 We are actually working on Row 21 aka Row 1 of the 1st front panel & beyond.

Right Front Panel We will be attempting to decrease & yet maintain the pattern to form the V-neck shaping of the lapel & the proper opening for the armhole.

Ø Row 1: ch 1, turn & sc in same space as our ch 1, *(shell) in the next divot, sc on top of the next shell, * repeat across ending with a sc in center DC of the shell at your 1st marker that you placed. Or at least that is where my marker was placed.

Ø
Row 2
: Beg DC, in our turning space, *sc in top of previous shell that was completed in the previous row, (Shell) in the divot, * repeat across ending with a DC in the last sc of the 1st row.

Ø Row 3: ch 1, turn & sc in same space as our ch 1, *(shell) in the next divot, sc on top of the next shell, *repeat across ending with a sc in top of the center DC of the last completed shell of the previous row.

Ø Row 4 & all even rows to Row 10 : Repeat Row 2

Ø Row 5 & all odd rows to row 11: Repeat row3

Ø Beginning our should strap section our piece from the beginning of the armhole to this point should measure about 4”(10.2 cm)

Ø Row 12: Beg ½ shell,* sc, (shell),* repeat this pattern across ending with a ½ shell in the last sc of the previous row, ch 1, turn.

Ø Row 13: SC in turning space, *(shell ) in next divot, sc, * repeat across ending with a sc in top of the last ½ shell of previous row.

Ø Row 14 & all even rows to row 24: Repeat row 12

Ø Row 15 & all odd rows to row 25: Repeat row 13, at the end of Row 25 Fasten off, weave end.

Ø Total opening or length of armhole should be 8” (20.3 cm)

Back Section

Ø Join yarn as I’ve instructed you to when joining yarns see special notes as a reminder at the 2nd PM, It should be in a center of a shell as well, if not adjust so that you have a 2”(5.1 cm) space between the beginning point of the front panel & the beginning point of the back panel.

Ø Row 1: sc in this joining spot as the special note instructs, *(shell) in the next divot, sc, * repeat across to your 3rd PM,ending with a sc in the center DC of the previous shell made.

Ø Row 2: Beg DC, sc in center of last shell made, *(shell) in the divot, sc, repeat across ending with a DC in the beginning sc of the previous row.

Ø Row 3: sc in the same space as the turning ch, *(shell) in the divot, sc, * repeat back across the back section to the other end, ending this time with a sc in the last full shell worked.

Ø Row 4 to row 11 will be worked like our 1st front panel.

Ø Row 12 & beyond will be worked like our 1st front panel as well. Once again fasten off. Weave to hide the end.

Left Front Panel

Ø Row 1: Join yarn at the 4th & final marker placed. Once again you should be joining with a sc in a center DC of the previous rows shell, *(shell) in the next divot, sc, repeat to the end of the section ending with a sc in the last DC of the previous rows ½ shell, ch 1 turn.

Ø Row 2: BegDC, in turning ch space, sc in top of next completed shell, *(shell) in the next divot, sc, * repeat across ending with a DC in the last sc of the 1st row worked for this section, ch 1, turn

Ø Row 3: SC in top of the turning point, *(Shell) in the next divot, sc, * repeat to the other end, ending with a sc in top of the last full shell created of the previous row, ch 1 turn.

Ø Row 4: BegDC, in the turning point, sc in top of the next full shell completed in previous row, *(shell) in the next divot, sc, repeat across ending with a DC in the last sc of the previous row, ch 1 turn

Ø Row 5 & every odd row to row 11: work in the same fashion as we did for the right front panel.

Ø Row 6 & every even row to row 10: work in the same fashion as we did for the right front panel.

Ø Row 12: Beg ½ shell, sc, *shell, sc, * repeat across ending with a ½ shell in the last sc of the previous row worked.

Ø Row 13: Sc in turning point, *(shell) in next divot, sc, * repeat across ending with a sc in the last DC of the Beg ½ shell of previous row

Ø Row 14 & beyond: work as we did for the right front shoulder strap section with the exception that we won’t be fastening off this time.

Using a sl st working the two shoulder straps together through the FLO or would it be the back loop I’ve never really understood those descriptions, so I used the two loops of the two pieced closest to each other, if that makes them the back loops than use them, I’ve always considered them the front loops, working through both shoulders toward the armhole sl st in each st through the two closest loops together to form our seam, now ch1, sc in seam, sc around the armhole opening placing 2 sc in each dc that you come across as you work down one side & up the next, placing on sc along the 2”(5.1 cm) space that we have our Markers yes you may remove your markers we are finally done with this set. Fasten off & weave in end

Now you will need to Join your Yarn at the neckline section of both of your other shoulder straps & work in the same fashion as you just did for this strap & armhole opening. Once again remove your markers as you don’t need them anymore, fasten off & weave in your end.

Now join your yarn at the 1st row of your Fancy Fringe on the right hand corner of your garment, sc up the right side, placing extra sc as needed to form a pretty edge, continue up & across our decreased edge to make it just as pretty smooth surface, to our shoulder seam, to the back section , to our other shoulder seam, back down the left front panels decreased section & final ending at the lower edge of the left front panel at the last sc of the 1st row of the fancy fringe , Fasten off & weave in your end to hide.

Please start your next Grannies as you did your First, work them to their respective final rounds. Now carefully consult the charts to see where each additional square will be needing to be added.

clip_image001

Now the fun part starts please follow the chart above & basically these instruction of placing a sl st into the appropriate ch 1 or ch 3 spaces at all the corresponding sides necessary. Yes, I know it gets a little tricky. That’s why I don’t use a knot to add my yarns I always use an extended tail & work over it to ensure that it is secure. And you won’t have to worry about right sides or wrong sides either if you join the way I do.

So on your final round no matter which size your are working I have provided the graph to reflect the sides you will need join.

Small: Round 3 is your Joining round: So we will need to work our Beg C a little differently, we will create our BegDC + 2 DC, ch 1, sl st into the previous squares ch 3 space of any corner you deem to be the joining section & then finish our corn with 3 DC, now we will sl st into the ch 1 space of the square we are joining to, work our 3 DC, sl st into the next ch 1 space of the square we are joining too & then we will work our next corner as 3 DC, ch1, sl st into the ch 3 of the previous square made, ch 1, 3 DC, then we will be able to finish this square like normal. And proceed to the next Square untill Figure 1 is completed.

Medium: Round 4 is your Joining round: So we will need to work our Beg C a little differently, we will create our BegDC + 2 DC, ch 1, sl st into the previous squares ch 3 space of any corner you deem to be the joining section & then finish our corn with 3 DC, now we will sl st into the ch 1 space of the square we are joining to, work our 3 DC, sl st into the next ch 1 space of the square we are joining to, work another 3 DC in as before, sl st into the next ch 1 space, & then we will work our next corner as 3 DC, ch1, sl st into the ch 3 of the previous square made, ch 1, 3 DC, sl st into the next ch 1 space, then we will be able to finish this square like normal. And proceed to the next Square until Figure 1 is completed.

Large: Round 5 is your final & joining round: So we will need to work our Beg C a little differently, we will create our BegDC + 2 DC, ch 1, sl st into the previous squares ch 3 space of any corner you deem to be the joining section & then finish our corn with 3 DC, now we will sl st into the ch 1 space of the square we are joining to, work our 3 DC, sl st into the next ch 1 space of the square we are joining to, work another 3 DC in as before, sl st into the next ch 1 space, 3 DC, sl st into the next ch 1 space & then we will work our next corner as 3 DC, ch1, sl st into the ch 3 of the previous square made, ch 1, 3 DC, sl st into the next ch 1 space, 3 DC, sl st into the next ch 1 space of the previous square, then we will be able to finish this square like normal. And proceed to the next Square until Figure 1 is completed.

Super Small Shoulder Squares: Well you guessed it I saved the shoulders for last as that is how I created my jumpers.

Please see figures above.

Start as you would for most Granny’s but this time we start with our CC no matter what size of jumper you are making, Ch 6, sl st to form a ring.

Round 1: Beg C, ch 1, corner, ch 1, corner, ch 1, corner, ch 1 sl st into the beg DC of your Beg C.

Round 2: (Beg DC+ 2 DC, ch 1, sl st into the corresponding corner ch 3 space on the chart above, ch 1, 3 DC, in same stitch as your joining), sl st into the next ch 1 space, 3 DC, ch 1 , sl st into the next c1 space, ch 1, 3 DC(2nd corner completed), ch 1, (corner), ch 1, (corner), sl st into the Beg DC, Fasten off. And move to 2nd Super Small & beyond.

2nd Super Small & Beyond:

Begin like you did with your 1st shoulder granny & when it’s time to join to your next shoulder square, on Round 2: (Beg DC + 2 DC, ch 1, sl st into corner ch 3 space of previous square, ch 1, 3 DC) , sl st into ch 1 space, ( 3 DC, ch 1, sl st into the corner ch 3 space of the previous round, ch 1, 3 DC) proceed to the end of square as you would a normal granny. Now on your 4th granny of a strap you will now be joining it to the 3rd granny of the strap & the next corresponding Jumper square.
