I made this Leaf Me On Vest for my mom. I am so happy when people in my family or friend ask me to make them crocheted clothes.
When my mom ask me to make her a summer vest, immediately this design came into my mind because i simply love this leaf stitch pattern and you can wear it at any age.
This Leaf Me On Vest is the is a beautiful light weight vest to wear it in the summer. It can be worn with everything from short jeans to dresses. Complete your outfit with this handmade vest. What I like most about a vest is that anyone can wear one. All depends on what you put under.
This Leaf Me On Vest has a simple construction. Only 3 panels sew together and done. Start with the back panel and then for the front panels just follow the same pattern as for the back, only that you will start with fewer stitches.
At the armpit, we will decrease a few stitches to shape the armholes.
After finishing all 3 panels, sew them together on the shoulders and sides and done. You can finish with a single crochet border.
This vest is over-sized with a positive ease of 11 cm around the hips area and 3 cm around the bust area.
Because of the stitch pattern is easy to size up or size down. Just add a group or more of 16 sts, or start with a group of more of 16 stitches less.
The Leaf Me On Vest is worked in a leaf stitch pattern, which is a combination of chains and double crochet. In the PDF pattern you will find a stitch chart for the top part which is the only part of the dress where you will need to count stitches and pay more attention.
This pattern is available in 3 sizes, Small, Medium and Large, but you can easily adjust this measurement by starting with fewer or more stitches. In the PDF pattern you will find a diagram with final measurement which will help you to make the proper size. Download the pattern from here
