SEWING

On the vest, fold sections A and C towards the center to section B. Use the long ends to sew the shoulders closed with a whip stitch. Fasten off. Weave in the ends.

Keep wrong side out.  Line up the pockets along the front bottom corner. Use stitch markers to keep it in place.

Use the long ends to sew the pockets to the corner with a whip stitch.

For the hood, fold it in half so the rows run vertically. Sew the back closed (row 1) with a whip stitch

Line the hood up along the collar of the vest. Use stitch markers to keep it in place. Bunch it up slightly. Do not line it up row per row. This will be too tight. Line up the center back of the hood with the top of the collar and then I have the bottom of the hood lined up with the middle of the armhole.

Sew the hood to the vest with a whip stitch.

Fasten off. Weave in the ends.

Turn right side out.

And you’re done with this cute hoodie vest! I hope you love it!

  1. Adore the turquoise yarn in the Unstash My Stash giveaway posted on April 1st.
    Thank you for the opportunity to explore new yarns.

  2. Hi,
    I’m working on the vest and am at 104 chains in the foundation, and it’s probably 5’ long – is that correct???
    Thank you, Jeannie

    1. I am working on the xl and I am worried about the length when I get done. I crochet pretty tight and I am using Caron Cotton cake the although it is classified as a 4 weight, it is smaller then the I love this cotton. Can you tell me the measurement from bottom to the armpit? I want to add rows if I need to. Thank you.

  3. Thank you! This may be beyond my skill set, but have to give it a try!! It’s sooo cute!
    You may hear from me again 🙂

  4. Hi Breann!
    First, let me say I loved this pattern. It was easy for me to understand – I had no problems – when I began I wasn’t sure if it was over my head or not, but it was not! However, I made a small and it is big – wide, longer than what yours appears to be – checked gauge and it’s correct. I used an acrylic worsted weight yarn – would that make a difference over cotton???

    I would make another one if I knew how to make it smaller 🙂

    1. Hi! Hm… I wonder what happened? Do the final measurements match what’s given? To make it smaller you could go down a hook size 🙂

  5. It looks like the width is 6” wider, 7” longer and armholes 10” rather than 7.25. I apologize if I sound crazy, but……I checked gauge and counted rows, etc. Thought I followed things to a “T” :).
    Thank you!
    Jeannie

  6. I finished a second vest. Used a different worsted weight yarn and the fit is like it should be – a made a small. Very easy to follow pattern – and I’m very pleased with what I created! Thank you – I look forward to more fun patterns.
