STITCH EXPLANATIONS

Fsc (Foundation single crochet)

1. Ch 2 (counts as first Fsc), insert hook in 2nd ch from hook and draw up a loop; yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (the "chain"); yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (the "single crochet").

NOTES

1. The Vest is formed from a rectangle, with openings for armholes. The foundation row forms the front and neck edges, and the last row forms the lower edge.

2. Rows are worked from the front edge, over the shoulder, and down to the back edge.

3. Increases are worked on either side of top back to shape the shoulders and causes the front edge of the rectangle to curve (around the neck).
