Simple crocheted vest for my sweet grandmother
Row 1: Ch 3, sl st into first chain, ch 3, 3 dc in same st, *4 dc ch2* (repeat from * twice more. Sl st into ch 3.
Row 2: sl st in first two dcs, ch 2, turn , dc in next two sts, (2dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in ch 2 space (makes a corner) dc in each dc from previous row and form corners as above. Do not join to beginning stitch, instead, ch 2, turn, repeat rounds as many times as needed to obtain size.
This is a super simple pattern. You basically just make two granny squares (turning halfway through one side to leave a slit for the arm hole) and stitch them together. Just make sure you leave the last few stitches (I stopped with 10 stitches remaining) to make room for the neck. I added a couple cute buttons and just chained 6 then sl st to make loops instead of button holes.
This sweet best is so easy and you can adjust the size by simply making smaller (or larger) granny squares.
If you have any questions feel free to comment... I know my first try at typing up a pattern is bound to be hard to follow.
