Suma Vest Crochet Pattern

Maker
8/29/2019

My name is Sarah and I am the designer and maker behind No Hooks Given. I am so excited about my first appearance on The Hook Nook today with my brand new Crochet Suma Vest Pattern.


I first saw crochet when I was 9 from my mom. She was so artistic and did so many things like painting, cooking, crocheting, and sewing. She made me clothes and taught me so many useful practical skills that I use in my everyday life. I really got into crochet when I was 15 because I wanted to make some accessories for my friends and it turned into a little side business. As life became more difficult with my family as they suffered from alcoholism and substance abuse, I turned to my craft to keep my busy in the evenings. When I lost my mom at 18, I feel into a world of confusion and sadness. Fast forward almost 10 years and I have learned so much in my journey of life. I wouldn't be where I am without my craft. There is so much in life that we have to challenge and figure out. My craft reminds me daily that with trial and error we can accomplish and overcome anything.


Each of my projects are inspired from wanting to learn new stitches, new skills, and while creating to see new designs that pop in my head. I am a Fall/Winter girl at heart but in the Summer months I still like to wear accessories and light layers. I am not too much of a shopper and always am indecisive. Being able to create my own clothing has been a huge push for be to continue to design garments and once you add in sentimental gorgeous yarn, I can't help but love this craft even more.


I used some hand-dyed cotton wool in a soft coral color from my wonderful local friend Becky Fetterley from Thistle & Hart. She dyed me up this custom color way when I told her I was going to be a guest designer on The Hook Nook. It's a sock weight 1 yarn but the lace backing makes the Suma Vest a breeze to work up. The Suma Vest is worked from the bottom up and split into panels for an easy assemble. The only seaming is along the top to connect the panels together. The Suma Vest is light enough to wear over a tank top to run errands even in 90 and up weather. The lace detail is so dainty that it makes it perfect to pair with a dress to attend a Summer Wedding. It's a practical accessory that can pair with almost any outfit for any occasion. Please share you progress photos, follow, and tag me @nohooksgiven on Instagram. I can't wait to see your projects.

Notes


CH 2 and CH 3 count as a DC.

The Suma Vest is worked from the bottom up working both front panels and the back panel all at once until the armhole opening. Panels will then be worked separately and will be noted in pattern with a double slash “//“ to indicate when the back panel is. It will look like this Front Panel / Back Panel / Front Panel.

The Front Panels are longer than the Back Panels to make up for the shoulders

Example of the row will look like this: Row 4:CH 2, DC in next ST and until M, DC in M and move it up. / 2DCTOG, CH 5, skip CH ARC, 1 DC in next SC, CH 5, skip CH ARC, *3DCTOG, CH 5, skip CH ARC, 1 DC in next SC, CH 5, skip CH ARC, REP from * until 2 STS left, 2DCTOG. / DC in each ST until end of row, moving up M, turn.

There is a chart to follow along for the lace portion of the back pane as well as written instructionsl.

This vest follows along sizes in the order of S (M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL).

This is an open style vest that does not close in the front and is meant to be worn for a lightweight accessory no matter the season.

This vest has no right or wrong side making it easy for left or right handers.

Turn your Suma Vest inside out with the front panels and the back panel are facing each other. Use the Whip ST to join the panels together.

Weave in all ends and block vest by doing a wet block, blocking mats, and t-pins to make the points for the bottom.


I hope you enjoy creating and wearing your Suma Vest! I loved every minute of designing this piece and can't stop wearing it! If you like this pattern check out my patterns in my Ravelry shop, on Love Crafts, and my blog Nohooksgiven. I'd love to see your finished vest so tag me @nohooksgiven on Instagram and use the #nhgcrafts as well. I can't wait to see your wips.
