Crochet Pattern: Circular Vest – 9 Sizes

By Rachel Choi – 34 Comments

The Circular Vest is crocheted in the round as one piece (no sewing required). It’s crocheted with a large crochet hook to give it a loose drape while still providing warmth. Best of all, this vest works up really quick! Personalize this cardigan styled vest by adding buttons or a belt.

Finished Sizes: X-Small, Small, Medium, Large, 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X (measurements for each size are included within pattern, bust size ranges from 28″ to 62″)

Skill Level: crochet skill level easy
Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 300 – 600 yards, depending on size)
Crochet Hook N (10.00 mm)
crochet yarn size 4

    Hi Rachel,

    I have a counting question. Do I count the ch 3 or ch 2 in each round as the first stitch so that for round 1, I would actually only do 11 dc to make 12, or do I dc 12 and the ch3 makes 13?


    • Rachel says:

      Hi Ester, the chains are not counted as double crochets unless specified in the pattern. So if the stitch count is 12 double crochets, then you are literally making 12 double crochets, not 11. (This also goes for any pattern on Crochet Spot) Let me know if you need more help.

  9. Debra says:

    Rachel, This pattern is wonderful. I do have a question. I have crocheted until the “finish” of a size medium. When I try it on it does not ruffle in the front. Is there something I’m missing? Thank you, Debra

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Debra, it’s all about the way you wear it. To style the ruffles, you can lay more of the fabric from the circle towards the front. You can even make the circle larger by continuing with the pattern if you think you need more fabric to drape down. Feel free to try it out and play around with it to make different looks!

    This is a GREAT pattern!!! It’s quick, easy to make, and looks great even when it’s made with the lesser expensive yarn (e.g., Red Heart).

  17. Gwen Walker says:

    I need to make this in a medium, but the N hook, is making too large. I’m wondering if I use a K hook & use the large pattern if that would be compatible??

  18. Gwen Walker says:

    HELP!!! I’ m doing this in a “L” I’ve finished round 11, the armhole, but
    Round 12 instruction scare 2 DC in next DC, DC in each of the next 10, around.
