My Man’s Vest

Posted on

This vest is for my husband because we are moving farther North in September.

The wool came in the batch from my friend.

There were 3 spools of it, an odd mix of colours, but I though that the “bacon” and cream would go well together. I’ve saved the apple green for a vest for me that’s still in the making.

I couldn’t find a pattern I liked so I made it up as I went along. It’s not particularly fitted but I don’t think men’s vests are supposed to be. I’ve never been good at writing down as I’m crocheting. Sometimes that means that the right and left fronts of a sweater or vest don’t quite match but I’m sure I’ll get there on the precision one day.

The stitch is a fake basket weave, not crocheted behind and before the post but simply in the front or back loop alternating every 2 stitches. It’s crocheted in half-double stitches. I think that’s what they’re called. In between a single and a double. Anyways, I was using what I had and wasn’t sure I would get a complete garment but I did so I’m happy!
