Embellished Vest

Hi Everyone,

The picture is the same vest, embellished with a few simple motif's added.  Below are the instructions for some flowers and leaves that can be used for the embellishment. 

You can also use the butterfly that was previously posted.

Small Flower Motif:  Ch 4, join with a sl st to form a ring.  Ch 1, make 10 sc in the ring, join with a sl st in the beg ch 1.  * Ch 2, make 3 dc in the next st, ch 2, sl st in the next st, rep from * 4 times more (5 petals made), join with a sl st, end off.

Leaf Motif:  Ch 16, sc in second ch from hook, sc in each of the next 13 ch, 3 sc in the last ch.  WORKING ON OTHER SIDE OF CH,  sc in each sc.  Do Not Turn, but continue working all around leaf and working in the back loop, work as follows:  [sc in the next st *ch 3, sc in the base of the ch 3 (picot made), sl st in the next st, sc in the next st, rep from * 6 times more] sc in the next st, picot, sl st in the next st (point of leaf made), repeat between the [ ] once, sl st, ch 12 (stem) make 1 sc in second ch from hook, 1 sc in each rem ch, sl st at base of leaf, end off.

I have not been able to get written text from my computer to the blog, so I had to type out the above instructions.  You will have to go to  for the vest instructions.  Click on patterns, then click on free patterns.

Have fun.
