Child's Hoodie Vest





This is a great children's vest for the Fall and Winter. Suitable for boys or girls. Adds a little extra warmth without adding a lot of bulk for those chilly winter days.

Finished Chest 25 (27, 29) in. (63.5 (68.5, 73.5) cm)
Length 12 1/2 (14 1/2, 16 1/2) in. (32 (37, 42) cm)

MATERIALS:

2 balls 3.50 oz./100 g (170 yd/156 m) worsted weight yarn
Crochet Hook Size J-10

GAUGE:

12 sts + 10 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in hdc. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
