I really love tinyowlknits ruffly vest on Ravelry, but I really do not have the patience for knitting, so I thought I'd try to make a crochet version. I set to designing and figuring it out, I ended up making enough tweaks that the only similarity to her vest is the fact that it's a vest and a certain feminine quality. Some of these tweaks were intended from the beginning, some were spur of the moment deciding what really suited me and the amount of yarn I had.

Vest pattern:
Sc blo 20 st, 157 rows with G hook

Work 155 Tunisian kn st into side of ribbing with J hook, 11 rows Tunisian seed kn st (not sure this is an official stitch, but easy enough to combine Tunisian seed st with Tunisian kn st)

Continue in sections of:
39(right front)+77(back)+39(left front)
16 rows each
Seam shoulder seams (I stitched together 18 st from each front section to the back section)

Work 155 sc (still j hook) into opposite side of ribbing, with right side facing, next row dc, continue increasing the height of these stitch with each row to desired length (the tops of the stitches will become quite loose and wide - this is desirable and gives the swishy peplum effect); I went up to 7 loops on hook, with the last row in my accent color (pull through 8x, octo-crochet?).

When desired length has been achieved, next row work 3 sc into the top of each stitch, working a picot on every 3rd stitch.

At neckline, work esc back and forth to desired collar height, working the last of the rows in accent color. very last row is just a with picot every 3rd stitch. Edge all exposed edges with sc (vest front opening and arm holes).

Afraid my guage got rather larger in the Tunisian section when my hook was loaded with loops, but still, not too bad! Thinking Ill add sleeves later, maybe. I quite like it as a vest, though.

Sorry I dont have a better picture yet I dont own any mirror large enough, so this was taken quickly in a restaurant.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
