Size: This pattern is for a Small/Medium it would be perfect for anyone 5ft 3” as it sits just at the ankles.
In the pattern there are some hints to help with taller sizes as well as larger sizes.

You will need: 2 skeins of Katia Summer Rainbow
(Fingering Weight yarn) Weight: 150g/600m
 Yarn Color: 57 Fiber
Content: 50%Cotton/50% Acrylic
2.75mm Crochet hook
Scissors
Tapestry needle
Stitches Used: Ch: chains
Sc: Single crochet
HDC: half double crochet
Dc: double crochet
Gauge: 3 groups(flower, dc cluster, flower) is approximately 5 inches
6 rows is approximately 2 ½ inches
Note: If you are using an ombre yarn for your vest you will want to keep the ombre effect even. Once you are done with your back you will find the same spot in the second skein of yarn and begin the front panels. Please watch the Tutorial for more help.

Instructions: This pattern is in a multiple of 20+15. 20 chains make up the dc clusters and the flower, the extra 15 makes up one more set of clusters including the extra dc on each end.

Smaller/Larger sizes: If you want to make a smaller/larger size you will want to make a chain that fits around the widest part of your hips or chest, make sure the chain is 2 things, a multiple of 20+15 and that it is not too loose or too snug.
Once you have your new chain count begin at Row 1 and continue in pattern.

For shorter or longer lengths skip down to the end of Row 72 for more info.

With your yarn and hook make a slip knot and chain 255.

 Row 1: in the 4th chain from your hook make 1dc, *dc in the next ch, ch2, dc in the next 2 chains, sk 2 chain, make 1 dc in the next 2 chains, ch2, dc in the next 2ch, ch4, sk 5chains, in the 6th chain dc, ch4, skip 5ch, make 1dc in the 6th ch* repeat from *to* across, make 1dc in the next chain, ch2, 1dc in the next 2chains, sk 2 chains, in the 3rd chain make dc, dc in next ch, ch2, dc in the last 3ch and turn your work.

Row 2: ch3(counts as 1st dc) *in the ch2 space from previous row make 2dc, ch2, 2dc, repeat in the next chain 2 space, ch3, count 3ch and hdc in it, ch3, pass the dc from the previous row and skip one chain, hdc in the next ch, ch3* Repeat from *to* across, in the ch2 space from previous row make 2dc, ch2, 2dc, repeat in the next chain 2 space, in the ch3 from previous row make a dc. Turn your work.

Row 3: Ch3 (counts as 1st dc) * in the ch2 space from previous row make 2dc, ch2, 2dc, repeat in the next chain 2 space, ch4, sk 1 ch 3 space in the next ch3 space make a dc, ch4* repeat from *to* across, in the ch2 space from previous row make 2dc, ch2, 2dc, repeat in the next chain 2 space, dc in the top of the ch3 from previous row, turn your work. You will have your first set group of Flowers and dc clusters, you will have a total of 25 groups. The next 3 rows will be the same but the pattern will alternate, the clusters will be above the flowers and the flowers will be above the clusters.

Row 4: Ch7(first 3ch count as dc) ,* in between the 2 groups of 2 dc you will make 1dc,

Ch4, in the next 2 chains make 1dc, ch2, in next 2 chains make 1dc in each, skip the dc from previous row and in the next 4 chains make 1dc in the next 2 chains, ch2, 1dc in the next 2 chains, ch4* repeat from *to* across ending by making a dc in between the 2 groups of 2dc clusters, ch4 and in the ch3 from previous row make a dc. Turn your work.

Row 5: ch6 (counts as first dc and ch3) *count 3ch from previous row and hdc in it, ch3, pass the dc from the previous row and skip one chain, hdc in the next ch, ch3, in the ch2 space make (2dc, ch2, 2dc) repeat in the next chain 2 space, ch3* repeat from *to* across, count 3ch from previous row and hdc in it, ch3, pass the dc from the previous row and skip one chain, hdc in the next ch, ch3, in the 4th chain make a dc. Turn your work.

Row 6: ch7 (counts as first dc and ch4), skip the first ch3 space and dc in the next ch3 space, ch4, in the ch 2 space make (2dc, ch2, 2dc) repeat in the next ch2 space, ch3* repeat from *to* across, skipping the first ch3 space and dc in the next ch3 space, ch4, dc in the 5th chain, Turn your work.

Row 7: ch3 (counts as first dc) *make 1dc in the next 2chains, ch2,1dc in the next 2 ch, skip the dc and make 1dc in the next 2ch, ch2, 1dc in the next 2ch, ch4, in between the 2 clusters make 1dc, ch4* repeat from *to* across, make 1dc in the next 2ch, ch2, 1dc in next 2ch, skip the dc and make 1dc in the next 2ch, ch2, 1dc in the next 3ch. Turn your work.

Row 8-72: Repeat rows 2-7. Fasten off. Stopping at Row 72 the vest will sit about ankle length when measured just under your armpit down, if you want your vest longer or shorter you will have to make less or more rows. If you want it shorter or longer you will want to make sure you repeat rows 2-7 for however long you want your vest (test it as you go from your armpit to the desired length making sure to complete the 6 rows)

The Back:
You will skip the first 7 groups of flowers and double crochet clusters. You will skip in total 3 groups of double crochet clusters (see pic below what the dc cluster will look like)

and You will also skip 4 of the flowers (see pic below of what the flower will look like)

 For smaller/larger sizes: the number of flowers and dc clusters you skip for the back will have changed. You should have an odd number of groups of flowers and dc clusters in total. To find yours take that number and minus 3, the leftover number now will get divided in half, that is the number of groups for your back, you will add back the 3 to the remaining number, if that number is even take one away and add it to the back panel, now you will divide that even number in half, that will be for your front panels, you will skip that number to start your back.

Example: I had 25, take 3 away you get 22, divide that in half 11, that is your back number. Add the 3 to the 11 gives you 14, divide that in half gives you 7 that is your front panel groups that you will skip. Join your yarn with a slip stitch at the end of the 5th flower you skipped, in the last of the ch4 from the flower (see pic below)


Row 1: Ch7(first 3ch count as dc) ,* in between the 2 dc clusters you will make 1dc,

Ch4, in the next 2 chains make 1dc, ch2, in next 2 chains make 1dc in each, skip the dc from previous row and in the next 4 chains make 1dc in the next 2 chains, ch2, 1dc in the next 2 chains, ch4* repeat from *to* across until you have 11 groups in total you will have 6 flowers and 5 dc cluster groups, ending with a flower group, you will dc in the first ch from the previous row. Turn your work. You should have the same number of dc clusters and flowers groups left on the this side as you did on the right front side (7 groups in total)

Row 2: ch6 (counts as first dc and ch3) *count 3ch from previous row and hdc in it, ch3, pass the dc from the previous row and skip one chain, hdc in the next ch, ch3, in the ch2 space make (2dc, ch2, 2dc) repeat in the next chain 2 space* repeat from *to* across until you reach the end of your row, dc in the 4 th chain. Turn your work.

Row 3: ch7 (counts as first dc and ch4), skip the first ch3 space and dc in the next ch3 space, ch4, in the ch 2 space make (2dc, ch2, 2dc) repeat in the next ch2 space* repeat from *to* across until you reach the end of your row, dc in the 3rd chain, Turn your work.

 Row 4: ch3 (counts as first dc) *make 1dc in the next 2chains, ch2,1dc in the next 2 ch, skip the dc and make 1dc in the next 2ch, ch2, 1dc in the next 2ch, ch4, in between the 2 clusters make 1dc, ch4* repeat from *to* across until you reach the end of the row, dc in the next chain. Turn your work.

Row 5: ch3(counts as 1st dc) *in the ch2 space from previous row make 2dc, ch2, 2dc, repeat in the next chain 2 space, ch3, count 3ch and hdc in it, ch3, pass the dc from the previous row and skip one chain, hdc in the next ch, ch3* Repeat from *to* across until you reach the end of your row, in the ch3 from previous row make a dc. Turn your work.

Row 6: Ch3 (counts as 1st dc) * in the ch2 space from previous row make 2dc, ch2, 2dc, repeat in the next chain 2 space, ch4, sk 1 ch 3 space in the next ch3 space make a dc, ch4* repeat from *to* across until you reach the end of your row, dc in the top of the ch3 from previous row, turn your work.

Row 7-15: repeat rows 1-6. When you reach the end of the 15th row you will fasten off. You will want to test this again for your size, if the armhole length isn’t long enough for your size you will want to make more rows or less rows.
If you do make sure you try to keep in pattern of 3 rows to make up the flowers and dc cluster groups. If you do make less or more rows for your armhole you will want to take note as how many rows you did as it will affect your front panel. But no worries below will be some help.

Front Panels:
For the armhole space, you will skip the flower and join your yarn in the last ch of the ch4 (see pic below)


Row 1-9: follow rows 1-9 for the back. You will have 6 groups in total for the front panel. Note for other sizes: if you made less or more rows than the 15 for the back you will need to adjust your front collar decrease. You will need 6 rows for the decrease so minus that from your back row number and stop working even at that row then continue from Row 10 for the decreases. Remember to repeat the same rows for the second panel. Decrease for the collar you will not decrease at the armhole edge but the neck edge:

Row 10: you will sl st in each st until you reach the center of the dc clusters,

Ch7 (counts as dc and ch4), *dc in the next 2 ch, ch2, dc in next 2 ch, skipping the dc from previous row, make 1dc in each of the next 2 ch, ch2, dc in the next 2 ch, ch4, dc in between the dc clusters* repeat to the end of the row, make a dc in the 3rd ch, turn your work.

Row 11: ch3(counts as first dc), *in the ch2 space make (2dc, ch2, 2dc), repeat that in the next ch2 space, ch3, hdc in the 3rd chain, ch3, skipping the dc from previous row and the 1st chain make a hdc in the next chain, ch3* repeat from *to* until you reach the last flower group,

you will have 2 flower groups and 3 dc clusters before you reach the last flower group, you will end the row by making 1dc in the first ch and turn your work.

Row 12: you will sl st in each st until you reach the center of the dc clusters, ch3(counts as first dc), *in the next ch2 sp make (2dc, ch2, 2dc), ch4, skip the first ch3 space in the next ch3 space make a dc, ch4, in the next ch2 sp make (2dc, ch2, 2dc) * repeat from *to* to the end of your row, making 1 dc in the 3rd chain from the previous row. Turn your work.

Row 13: ch7 (counts as dc and ch4), *in between the 2 clusters make a dc, ch4, in the next 2 chains make 1 dc, ch2, dc in the next 2 chains, skipping the dc make a dc in the next 2 ch, ch2, dc in the next 2 ch, ch4* repeat from *to* until you have 4 groups left ending with a dc cluster, you will dc in the next dc. Turn your work.

Row 14: ch3,* in the ch2 space make (2dc, ch2, 2dc), repeat that in the next ch2 space, ch3, hdc in the 3 rd chain, ch3, skipping the dc and next ch hdc in the 2nd chain, ch3* repeat from *to* until you have reached the end of your row, make a dc in the top of the 3rd ch. Turn your work.

Row 15: ch7 (counts as dc and ch4), *skipping the first ch3, make a dc in the next ch3 sp, ch4, in the next 2 ch2 space make (2dc, ch2, 2dc), ch4* repeat from *to* until you reach the end of your row, make a dc in the top of the 3rd ch. Fasten off your work.

You will repeat these 15 rows for the other side of your front panel, making sure to decrease at the collar edge and no the armhole edge.

The Assembly:

You will put your work wrong side facing you so that the front panels line up with the back making sure the armholes are even. You will now slip stitch the shoulder seam closed, making sure to match stitch for stitch. Fasten off once you reach the end of the first panel. You will repeat this for the second side as well.


The Border:

You will now make a border of sc all around the free edge of your vest and the armholes as well. With your work right side facing you, join your yarn at the bottom corner of your vest with a slip stitch, you will be working along the inside edge of your vest working in the side of the rows. You will want to make sure you are consistent with the number of sc you add, you will want to make it even on both sides. This is how I did mine in the side of the rows, in the ch3 space on the side of the dc cluster rows I made 2sc in the ch3 sp, 1sc in between the row, 2sc in the next ch sp, 1sc in between the row, 2sc in the next ch sp, 1 sc in between the row, for the flower rows, I made 3sc in the ch space, 1sc in between the rows, 2sc in the ch3 sp, 1sc in between the row and 3 sc in the next ch space, repeating this all along your side till you reach the back, there you will make a sc in each st as it presents itself, the work down the other side of the vest the same as you did the other side, once you reach the bottom you will pick up 1 sc in each st along the bottom until you reach the first sc you made, sl st with it and fasten off. For the armholes, you will repeat the same thing picking up stitches evenly. Fasten off and hide all loose tails. Hood: To start your hood you will need to find the point on the front panel where you began you decrease. Once you find that you will then count down 9 rows or 3 groups of flowers and dc clusters with a stitch marker mark it and the other side in the same spot too. You will want 120 sc in between the stitch markers. If you don’t have that adjust the st markers evenly until you do. Note: If you made your vest a different size you may need to adjust your hood count, to find yours you will still do as above finding the beginning of your collar decreases and counting down 3 groups of flowers and dc clusters, you will need to count the st in between your stitch markers and then increase about 20 st evenly in the first row. Work the same number of rows or until you are satisfied with your hoods length. Assemble and add the border the same as instructed below.

Row 1: Join your yarn in the same place as your st marker with a slip stitch, ch3(counts as dc) now dc in the next 5 st, *make 2 dc in the next st, dc in the next 6st* repeat from *to* until you reach the next st marker. You will have increased to 140dc. Turn your work.

Row 2-34: ch3 (counts as first dc), skip the first dc at the bottom of the ch3 and dc in the next st, dc in each st across and lastly make a dc in the top of the ch3, you will have 140dc in total.

You will not fasten off, you will now fold your hood in half wrong sides facing you, you will now assemble the top seam of your hood together with a slip stitch matching stitch for stitch, once you reach the fold you are done, fasten off and sew in all the loose tails. Turn your hood right side facing you. You will now make a sc border along the edge of the hood. Pass your crochet hook about 2sc before your first row of dc and join your yarn with a slip stitch, ch1, sc in the next sc, you will pick up 2 sc per row of dc, when you get to the ridge of the hood you will make 1 sc in the seam, continue to pick up 2sc per row until you reach the end of the hoodie side and the first st of your vest, sc in the next st of the vest, sl st in the next st and fasten off, hide all loose tails and you are done.
