I am making this for my daughter-in-law who should wear the small-medium. The back piece is the right size but as I have just about finished the rounds, it seems very small. I have finished round 6 and it sure does not seem like it will fit her. What can I do? Pull it all out and start over with the large?
Hi - See how it fits across the shoulders. The crochet rounds become part of the collar. See how it's folded at the top? If your gauge is right and if the width of the back fits okay, then the collar should continue to enlarge and fit fine. If you feel it fits small across the shoulders at the back, then you may want to make the larger size. Hope that helps. Thanks
Hi, I'm thinking of starting this pattern, I'm a size 14-16 can the size be altered? I'm quite wide across back and chest, so worried it will be a little stretched
I think following the Large/Extra Large instructions will be fine for you. It's wider across the back. Then you can work the outer circle as you like to fit across the bust.
BonjourJe trouve ce tricot trs beaumais comme je ne parle pas anglais Vous serait-il passible de l'avoir en franais Merci Rosanne
Dsol, mais le modle est uniquement disponible en anglais. Merci
Wie kan het patroon overzetten in het Nederlands?Mijn technisch Engels is niet toereikend.prachtig vestje voor komend voorjaar, hoop op een reactie.
Sorry, ik weet het niet. Het patroon is alleen in het Engels.
Might I ask what yarn you made for this shrug? I absolutely love it, and can't wait to make it, but I want to make sure I have good yarn first!
It calls for a worsted weight acrylic. I've used Vanna's Choice or I Love This Yarn.
Thank you for your reply! I wasn't sure if it required cotton yarn. I'm glad to know I can use acrylic!
I started off using yarn that is a bit too thick - I had it on hand - Lion Brand Chunky USA. The detail doesn't show like it does in this photo. I'm not getting the holes - so - does this come in a knitting pattern? I'm glad I have the pattern I guess but I wish I could have read it better before paying 5.00 for it.
I went out yesterday and bought some lovely yarn and so far this is working so beautifully. I hope it comes out looking like this picture. Does anyone monitor this board I wonder?
Hi Barb - I check comments when I can. It's been a busy week with a school play and work schedule! This is written for worsted weight and chunky weight would end up completely different. While I do knit, I am not a knit wear designer. This pattern is only available in crochet. If you are truly unhappy with your purchase, please email me at email@example.com. Thanks
Barb your result is amazing and I am about to have a look if I have some yarn to make this! I fell in love with the pattern :)
Thank you ladies... I guess I spoke to soon when I said I was not happy - I am pleased as can be with the results. Many ladies, have ordered this pattern since I did.
I'm new to crochet, so maybe this is a dumb question, but I got confused with rows 4 & 5. I did the sc in each dc space for row 4, but I wasn't sure what to do with row 5. Any help would be appreciated!
Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Rounds 4 and 5 are the same in sc.
All LazyTcrochet patterns are in English, using U.S. crochet terminology. I do not offer Spanish translation. Sorry!
Help please! Just about to start round 1 and I notice that the stitch count should be 142 by the end of it but since each row is 38 stitches and there is two lots of 30 chains that makes 38+38+30+30 = 136. Any ideas?
*g* It'd probably help if I read the pattern properly! The first row had 44 stitches making 142 at the end of round 1.
Ah yes! I was just about to explain it that way. Crochet math is always fun! LOL Glad you figured it out. Thanks
hmmm... I didn't have 142 either. Ok.. I guess this pattern is out of my level of experience.
ok never mind... I never got as far as the rounds
I'm about to start the edging of the back section in the larger size. I, too, am having trouble making the math work before starting. My back piece has 47 double crochets in width, double that for top edge and bottom edge and add 64 chains (32 on each end) and you get an even number, not an odd number. Can you explain your "crochet math"? I also had trouble getting the 47 stitches on the previous rows...had to double crochet in what I consider the 'same stitch' as the chain two at the end of the previous rows to get 47 stitches. My brain is having trouble with the leap from 47 stitches wide to the 167 stitches for the perimeter/edging round 1. By my calculations the stitch count should be 47+47+32+32 = 158....WAY OFF from the 167 the pattern calls for. If nothing else, this number should be an even number, right? Help? I'm hesitant to proceed until I have a better understanding of the stitch count and how to achieve it for round 1, as I assume the remainder of the rounds rows will depend on getting the first round correct:)
Ahhhh! never mind. I see now what LouLouLoop was saying about the first row...the foundation double crochet row having a different count than row 17 of the back. Sorry to bother you:) So satisfying to have figured it out:)
I'm glad you figured it out. Sorry I didn't see your comments until now. I do try to keep up with it!
Please note that I updated this pattern on 5/22/13 to fix a stitch count on Round 7 of the size small/medium version. The updated version is available in your pattern library. Thanks!
Thank you for this update!
This worked up a treat? Great pattern!
Thanks for your help. It's coming along great.
beautiful coat, i have a similar one, made by my mom
Just finished Rounds 4 and 5. Help! What round starts adding stitches to the side chain stitches?
Go back to round 2, Ellen. It works stitches all the way around.
Wow! This is very classy . I'm going to try this pattern.
Does the picture above show the item with or without the "optional" rows added? Thanks in advance.
No, the orange vest shown does not show the optional extra rows. Thanks
I LIKE THEORANGE VEST, COULD YOU PLEASE HELP ME HOW TO MAKE IT
HELLO ,HOW CAN I MAKE THE ROW 1PLEAASE
Hi - I replied to your emails and if you need help, let me know. Here is a link to the pattern... http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/crocheting/clothing/crochet-ladies-circle-vest-or-shrug/192
really like it,aww,can i get how to make it too plse.
hELLO, CAN SOMEBODY HELP ME PLEASE!I WANT TO MAKE THAT CROCHET CIRCIE VEST.
I made this vest and I must say I so loved making this. I can't wait to wear it. I will try making it in another color. Thanks for a great patterns.
This was one of the first patterns I purchased from Craftsy and I made it up at least 6 different times as Christmas gifts...Loved it...
Is there an easy was to convert this to a knit pattern?
I don't have a knit version, sorry.
I LOVE this design! Well-written pattern, worth the money. I picked the pattern up last night and just about have it completed. I don't think this one I'm working on is going to fit me, but I'm sure it will find a home. I admit I didn't take measurements. I do plan on tweaking it to make it a size or 2 bigger. As was mentioned before, you may want to consider including notes on adjusting the size. I have a full figure and this design attracted me because it looks like it could be kind to my shape. I'm sure others would feel the same way :-)
I noticed at the bottom of the pattern that you cannot sell the finished product. This should have been included in the pattern listing. It's a wonderful pattern, but had I have known this condition was tacked on to it, I would not have bought it. As with so many stitchers, I buy patterns to sell my finished items to support my family. I always include a link to the designer in my listings so that they can get business too. But I won't buy patterns that I can't sell my finished work from. At least I know this now.
I had the same problems. The pattern runs small. To remedy this I used a larger hook for one size larger and thicker yarn with larger hook for two sizes larger. Also, if I had know I couldn't sell the end product I probably would not have bought it. I also give credit to the designer.
It ran small for me, also. I loved the pattern and style though. The pattern was easy to follow, written very well, and I am going to make another one in a different color, so I'll just use a hook in a size or 2 larger.
when you used the next hook size up and thicker yarn, did you see the details as well as they are showing in the photo?
Love this vest, very fast pattern. I'm tall so I lengthened it, however, it came out ruffled in the back. Has anyone else had this problem?
I'm not quite done yet, so I can't honestly answer about the ruffling. One thing that comes to mind though... Did you try blocking it?
I had the same problem, and I'm not exactly sure how to alleviate it (yet), but I am planning to make a 2nd one in the near future. I wanted the fullness in the front for the drapey (if that's a word, ) look, but it was a little more ruffled in the back than I cared for. I think it probably will be as simple as increasing in the front but not the back (or not as many increases in the back); I just haven't done it yet. HTH.
So theoretically if you just wanted a shrug you could leave the part of the pattern off with the circular collar and you'd have just that. Correct?
No. It starts with just a square back. Starting the circle collar also creates the arm hole openings.
There's a long-sleeved shrug pattern available here... http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/crocheting/clothing/bell-sleeved-shrug/7364
I just started this project and would like to know if the picture on the web page has the added rows after Row 20. None of the finished project pictures look like the one on the web page.
The orange vest pictured was worked through round 21 like the original pattern, without the optional instructions. In some of the other colors shown, I may have used the enlargement instructions, in part or whole. I'm happy to help if you have any questions.
Do you have written instructions for this pattern? I'd love to make it. Thanks
There's a link for the pattern here... http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/crocheting/clothing/crochet-ladies-circle-vest-or-shrug/192
Is this actually crocheted in a circle or is the back straight across like the red one? Susan
The back is square and worked in rows and then the circular collar is added.
Actually it's rectangle, not perfectly "square".
The back is square and worked in rows and then the circular collar is added.
Really gorgeous vest! Love it
This is beautiful, especially in the violet. How hard would it be to add on sleeves to it should they be desired?
You could join yarn in the armpit area and work in dc around, then taper it down as you go. I haven't tried it because I prefer the vest style. Let me know if you do!
I think it would be important to note how to increase/decrease the size of the base square for a good fit. The count of stitches isn't important that I can see. Making that base the correct size for your back measurement is important. If this doesn't fit you have a lot of work and yarn down the tube.
Yes - I made this according to instructions but ended up ripping it all out as it puckered across the back at the bottom of the arm holes. Probably would have been eliminated if I had taken measurements and customized it to those. I was so bummed out as it was very pretty.
