The knitted version of this was so popular I wanted to try a crochet version.
The reversible part of this vest is if you wear it with the longer section up it creates a shorter vest with a fuller collar; worn with the shorter section up it creates a longer vest with a smaller collar.
This wrap used all but a tiny ball of the suggested yarn. I wanted to go around the armholes to reinforce them and make a border to clean up the edges but I was trying to be conservative in yarn consumption. If one wanted those touches and didn’t want a 4th skein cut back on the length you make the front panels and that should leave you enough.
3 Skeins of Cascade Magnum (@369yds). Hook size depends on gauge.
Gauge: 32 stitches = 30 inches or less than a stitch per inchThe hook I used for this piece didn’t have a size on it. Measuring it the shaft measures 2” around. If 1” = 25.4mm that’s a big hook! Lion Brand makes an S hook and this site: jenkinswoodworking.com makes U & V hooks.
