Crochet hook in size H/5mm


• The chain-5 at the beginning of each row accounts for the first double crochet and chain-2.
• To end a row, place the last dc into the third chain from the beginning of the previous row.
• Each “block” is three stitches wide, consisting of a two chains and a double crochet.
• As written the vest is about 35” from neck to hem.
• To make the vest shorter: Each block is about ¾” tall/wide. For every three chains subtracted from the beg chain, one block is removed. So, if you remove 30 chains and start with 125 instead, you would have 10 fewer blocks and the vest would be about 8” shorter.

• Body is worked in one piece, then the hood is added to the body.
