This is by far the easiest shrug pattern I've found.  You can make it with any yarn/hook/stitch.  I'm on my second one.

For the body of mine, I used the granite stitch, it makes for a really lightweight, stretchy fabric - http://www.crochetme.com/issue_1/stitch_dictionary_two.html

Autywon, I didn't mean to scare you off - it's really not hard at all!  All you do is lay out a sweater that fits you like you want the shrug to fit, take a couple measurements, and start crocheting.  The width of the inital rectangle is the same as the measurement around your arm (or the width of your sweater sleeve, times 2) - that's the length of your starting chain.  Then, you crochet it to as long as you want it to be.  When you've got a long enough rectangle, fold over the short sides and sew up each side for the sleeve length.  Basically, it looks like a long tube with a slit in the middle.  The directions that I linked to are really easy to follow, and if you get stuck, I'd be happy to help you along the way!  Think positive crocheting thoughts  Grin

Sorry, can't help you with a vest  Sad  Try searching www.crochetpatterncentral.com or www.crochetme.com, I think crochetme recently had a pattern for a vest.

If you want an easy pattern that you can change from being a shrug to being a vest ... or whatever else your quicksilver desires lead you to want ... then you might have to work on your focus.

The average shrug takes a couple of evenings to complete ... and if you don't want a shrug enough to dedicate your attention for two evenings ... then you have to really decide what it is you want to make.

Most of the patterns are relatively easy ... but it does take some concentration to make sense of the patterns.  They are really straightforward. 

You might find that you prefer the diagram type patterns better than the written ones.   Some people are better at visualizing than interpreting the printed word.

However, I've found most patterns to be easy to follow ...

Why don't you find a pattern you like ... for the moment ... and jump in and try to follow it.  It's really that simple.
