As seen in Interweave Crochet Spring 2008...the "Tolmie Cardi Vest"!
This vest is worked from the top down, and includes a yoke with several rows of half double crochet with mitered corners. The pattern stitch for the bodice is a simple two row repeat pattern. After the waist, a larger hook is used to create a slightly wider bottom edge and flattering “V” shape in the front. The vest includes instructions for a crocheted belt and buttons, but you can use your own belt and buttons for a truly unique look.
