Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • dc ch/dc chain = foundationless double crochet (I have a tutorial on my blog for this stitch at http:/ /

Pattern Description:

This Crochet Circle Shrug or Vest is a sleeveless design with a circular collar all the way around. You can use a button, or a shawl pin closure if desired.
Skill: Intermediate, with additional instructions provided on my blog.
Worked with worsted weight yarn. Sizes for Small/Medium and Large/X-Large, with additional instructions to increase for Plus Size. Bust measurement varies, depending on if or where you choose to button it.
(Approximately 32 - 36 for small/medium and 38 - 42 for large/x-large with additional inches for the plus size addition.)
It is not form-fitting, but more of a loose style to button or let loose. It is not a tight fit around the arm hole openings and is meant to be a more open and comfortable style.

Instructions are in English, using U.S. crochet terms. I do not have Spanish translation available.

Good Fun and quick project  October 8, 2012

This was a quick project -- made one in the S/M size for my sister (pictured), and one in the L/XL for my mother-in-law. Just wish there were instructions for 2X to fit me!

Good Excellent project  August 12, 2012

There were a few rows where my stitches had a different count than the pattern, but it came out fine. This was my second project after just learning to crochet and it came out just like the pattern picture.

A tip would be to use a crochet hook one size smaller to pull the stitches through the ch-1 stitches when doing the rows of sc.

Great project and goes very fast.

Excellent Cute little crocheted vest.  May 2, 2012

Very cute vest. Body measurements would help in determining size. I like it because it is very stylish and has a designer look. I am waiting to see what this designer has next with regards to vests and shrugs.
