Lavender Chair's Circular Vest CAL..

Recently I took part in a Crochet Along (CAL) for a circular vest hosted by the Lavender Chair. I just got around to finishing my vest:



I used Premier Sweet Rollyarn which is a worsted weight (4) 100% acrylic yarn. First time using and I love the softness and drape of the yarn so I will definitely be using it for other projects that call for a multi-color yarn.

For a size large, it took just shy of 3 rolls. Here is what I had left of my yarn:

While the CAL has ended, the pattern is still available for FREE on the Lavender Chair and directions to add sleeves is also included; you can either add the sleeves or just make the vest.

You will also find a FREE pattern to make the same vest in sizes to fit a child's 2T all the way up to size 8/10.

I highly recommend both the pattern and the yarn..the pattern directions are clearly written and the stitches are easy to do.

I found the most darling crochet Easter dress pattern....

available at Annie's Catalog. Actually, the sundress would be cute worn anytime.

Included in the pattern, which is a design of Lisa Naskrent, are sizes 12 months all the way to size 10:

I ordered the pattern to make one for my Etsy shop in size 18-24 months. The pattern calls for 100% DK cotton yarn, but I decided to use Bernat Baby Sport which worked out just fine.

The pattern was easy to follow and I was able to finish in three (3) evenings. I highly recommend this design for anyone with some crochet experience.

If you would like a "So Hoppy" dress already finished, here is my finished dress that is ready to ship from my Etsy store:
