INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 treble by working 2 trebles in same stitch.
Increase 1 double treble by working 2 double trebles in same stitch.
----------------------------------------------------------

VEST:
The vest is worked in 3 parts. Work back piece as a square separately. Work front pieces as a half circle and continue up to shoulder. When front pieces and back piece are sewn together, work 1 round with picots along entire outer edge.

BACK PIECE:
Begin with crochet hook size 5 mm and Paris and work pattern according to diagram A.2 4 times in total on round (A.1 shows how round begins and ends). REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When A.2 has been worked, there are 35 trebles along each side and 4 corners that consist of 2 trebles, 3 chain stitches and 2 trebles. The square for back piece is done for size S/M, fasten off. Crochet square measures approx. 28 x 28 cm. Continue in the round in size L/XL and XXL/XXXL as follows:

L/XL:
Repeat the last 2 rounds. Increase 1 treble before and after each corner. There are now 2 trebles more on each of the 4 sides = 39 trebles along each side. Fasten off. Crochet square measures approx. 37 x 37 cm.

XXL/XXXL:

Repeat the last 2 rounds. Increase 1 treble before and after each corner. There are now 2 trebles more on each of the 4 sides = 43 trebles along each side. Work slip stitches until chain space with 3 chain stitches in first corner. Then work from 2nd row in diagrams A.3A to A.3C back and forth along one side as follows: Work A.3A around this chain space (shows how row begins and ends) - READ CROCHET INFO. Work A.3B until 1 treble remains before chain space in next corner, work A.3C (= 1 chain stitch, skip 1 treble and work 1 treble around chain space in corner). Turn and work last row in diagrams.
Fasten off. Work the same way along the side on opposite side of square. Fasten off. Crochet square measures approx. 47 x 37 cm.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work 4 chain stitches on hook size 5 mm with Paris and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Then work a half circle as follows:
ROW 1: Work 4 chain stitches, * 1 treble around chain stitch ring, 1 chain stitch *, repeat from *-* 7 more times, finish with 1 treble around ring.
Turn and work as follows from right side: Work A.4A, A.4B, A.4C. On last row in diagrams increase evenly as follows - READ INCREASE TIP: Increase 0-6-6 trebles over A.4A (= 27-33-33 trebles) and 0-9-9 double trebles over A.4B (= 30-39-39 double trebles). Increase 0-3-3 trebles before corner in A.4C (= 6-9-9 trebles) and increase 0-3-3 trebles after corner (= 13-16-16 trebles). there are 76-97-97 stitches in total + corner (= 2 trebles, 3 chain stitches, 2 trebles) on last row. Size S/M is now done, fasten off. Work back and forth in the 2 next sizes as follows:

L/XL- XXL/XXXL:
Turn and work from wrong side. Work from row marked with arrow in diagrams as follows: Work A.5B over the first 15 trebles, A.5A, 3 chain stitches, (2 trebles, 3 chain stitches, 2 trebles) around chain space in corner, 3 chain stitches, A.5B over the next 9 trebles, A.5C over the next 39 double trebles, A.5B over the next 32 trebles, finish with A.5A in the last treble on row. Work last row in diagrams the same way. There are now 97 trebles/double trebles + 1 corner (= 2 trebles, 3 chain stitches, 2 trebles) on last row. Fasten off.

SHOULDER:
Now work back and forth over the first trebles from right side in A.4 (in size S/M) and A.5 (in size L/XL and XXL/XXXL), begin from 2nd row in diagrams as follows: Work A.3A, A.3B 5-6-7 times in total in width. Turn and work last row. Repeat the 2 last rows in diagrams 3-3-4 more times. Fasten off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Work as right front piece but reversed.

ASSEMBLY:
S/M and L/XL: Sew shoulder on to each side at the top edge on crochet square/back piece. Sew stitches together one by one. On back piece there are now 17-21 trebles for neck between shoulder pieces. Cut the yarn and fasten off.
XXL/XXXL: Sew shoulder on to each side at the top edge on crochet square/back piece. Sew the 6 outermost treble crochets on shoulder to the side of the 2 outermost rows on back piece and sew the other stitches together one by one.
On back piece there are now 25 trebles for neck between shoulder pieces. Cut the yarn and fasten off.

PICOT EDGE:
Begin on top of one shoulder and work a picot edge as follows:
Work * 1 treble in treble/around row, 3 chain stitches, 1 slip stitches in first of the 3 chain stitches, 2 trebles in same treble/around row, skip approx. 2.5 cm *, repeat from *-* around the entire vest, i.e. around both armholes, along edge on front pieces, back of neck along bottom edge on back piece. Finish with a slip stitch in first treble on round. Fasten off.

TWINED STRING:
Cut 2 lengths of 1.5 metres each. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Thread string through picot edge at the front on one front piece and tie a knot. Make another 3 strings the same way.
Fasten one to the other front piece.

Use the 2 other strands to keep front and back piece together in each side: Start approx. 21-23-25 cm from top of one of the front pieces and the back piece. Thread the string back and forth through holes in the picot edge, between the front and back piece in zig zags (like a shoe lace) and tie them together at the bottom - see picture.
Adjust length on string so that distance between front piece and back piece is approx. 6-6-8 cm. Repeat in the other side.

Hi, I am stuck please help, I completed diagram A4A, but can’t see how to follow on with A4B and A4C , they all seem to be starting at the same point and no logical follow on? also at the end of A4A my treble count is 52 working size S/M and not 27 as per the pattern. Can’t figure this one out as I have a half circle . Please help.

Dear Elisabeth, when you work A.4 you are supposed to work seen from RS: A.4A, then A.4B and finish with A.4C - read more how to read several diagrams consecutively on the row here. Happy crocheting!

Alisa Gannon 14.01.2019 - 15:26:

I love this vest. Is it possible to reduce the size to a girl's 12? So hard to find a good kids vest pattern but your adult ones are gorgeous!

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 17:40:

Dear Mrs Gannon, we are unfortunately not able to adjust every pattern to each individual request. However you can check the measurement from chart and adjust following your tension to the desired measurements. Your DROPS store may assist you if required, even per mail or telephone. Happy crocheting!

Zur Anleitung Drops 175-24 habe ich folgende Frage. Beim Vorderteil steht, dass in der letzten Reihe der Diagramme Stäbchen zugenommen werden sollen. Wie ist das zu verstehen? Zum Beispiel in A.4A steht 0-6-6. Sind die wirklich alle in einer Reihe zu verteilen oder in 3 Reihen mit je 0, 6 und 6 Stäbchen. Und wenn alle in einer Reihe zugenommen werden, wie werden sie dann verteilt? Für eine kurzfristige Antwort wäre ich sehr dankbar, damit ich gleich weiter machen kann. Danke.

Anleitung Bonita von Drops Design, 175-24\\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\n\\r\\nHallo, ich habe eine Frage zum Vorderteil. Werden da bei der dritt letzten Reihe vom Diagramm A.4A, A.4B und A.4C wirklich die Stäbchen in die Maschen gehäkelt nicht um den Maschenbogen? Es sind nämlich 5 Stäbchen (oder 5 Doppelstäbchen bei A.4B) für 6 Luftmaschen. Vielen Dank für Ihre Hilfe :-)

DROPS Design 14.03.2018 kl. 09:21:

Liebe Frau Stockbauer, Ihren Hinweis wird unserer Designteam weiterleitet. Ich würde auch diese 5 Stäbchen um den Maschenbogen häkeln (dh wie beim 6. und 8. Reihe in A.2). Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Thank you Deidre - I understand, but are you including the chain 3 as the 16th DC?

DROPS Design 09.07.2017 kl. 12:49:

Hello again Gwyn, No, the 3 chain stitches are just the start and the finish of the round (A1), the 16 double crochets are A2, Deirdre

Gwyn Milton-Taylor 08.07.2017 - 02:16:

I am sorry - in my original message I am referring to chart A.1..thank you!

Gwyn Milton-Taylor 08.07.2017 - 02:12:

Hi there! In the first round of A.2, are there a total of 15 double crochets plus the chain 3 - for a total of 16 DC. In looking at the diagram, if you repeat 4 times and include the chain 3 (which counts as a double crochet) you would have a total of 17 DC. I would imagine you wouldn't want an odd number of stitches in forming a square...thank you for your advise!

DROPS Design 08.07.2017 kl. 11:57:

Hi Gwyn, There should be 16 double crochets. The 3 chain stitches are to start the round with and then you end the round with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch. I hope this helps. Kind regards, Deirdre.
