You would be surprised how easy this one is to make. It is basically a long rectangle that you wrap around your body and sew in the back. This works nice for all four seasons - spring and summer with just a light blouse or tank top underneath and for fall | autumn or winter wear a long sleeve turtleneck or button down.
 
Big thank you to my good friend Eric from Nit Nax for sending me the beautiful crochet kit you see in the video. You can purchase this lovely kit on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/1TiXphy and be sure to check out his website at: http://nitnax.com
 
Check out the written pattern below, and most especially, view my YouTube video tutorial for how to crochet this wrap sweater vest!
 
Materials:
500 yards of soft worsted weight yarn. Sample (small/medium) completed with less than 2 skeins of Caron Simply Soft in Soft Pink
Size H - 5 mm crochet hook
Soft measuring tape, Yarn Needle, Scissors
 
Finished Measurements:
Customizable. Sample small/medium wrap consists of a rectangle 11" wide by 84" long. Back length (from below neck to below waist) is 22". The width (11") multiplied by 2 determines the back length. This is generally an average length, but you can adjust this if you are taller or shorter by making the initial width wider or thinner. The length of the rectangle (rows) can easily be altered (make more or less rows) for those with a larger or smaller bust area.
 
Instructions:
Slipknot. Chain 44 - or any multiple of 4 (such as 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, etc.). Your initial chain should be about 13" in length once completed. If not, add or subtract chains in groups of 4.
Row 1: DC in 4th chain from hook. (This counts as 2 DCs) *CH 2, SK 2, 1 DC in next 2 stitches.* Repeat between * and *. Instead of turning and CH 3, follow alternate method.
Alternate method: Turn. SC. CH 1. This is a faux DC and counts as 1 DC. Video explains this in detail.
Row 2: DC in every DC stitch. CH 2 above every CH 2 stitches. Continue across row in pattern. Use Alternate method at the end.
Note: Check width measurement - should be between 10" and 12".
Rows 3+: Repeat Row 2 for 84 inches or a sufficient length to wrap around body as shown in the video. Cut and weave in all ends.
Wrap scarf around upper back, cross in front, then meet ends in the back. Stitch back seam first (experienced sewers can move this seam underneath the criss-cross in the front to conceal it). Then stitch the bottom to the top in the back, leaving enough space for armholes.
