A pattern of simple shells makes a bold statement when crocheted in an oversized gauge and a silky, fluid yarn. Sleeveless and open, this vest features a V-neck, front string ties, and a deep ruffled trim. The yarn is a luscious tape that produces a fabric with serious stretch. The vest will seem small while you are crocheting it, but never fear-it will open up beautifully when blocked and worn.
Finished Size: 33 (37, 42, 47)" (84 [94, 106.5, 119.5] cm) bust circumference; 27 (27, 29, 29)" (68.5 [68.5, 73.5, 73.5] cm) long after blocking. Note: Measurements are approximate. Fabric is very stretchy and will give another 3" (7.5 cm) either in width or length when worn.
