The Fluffy Meringue Shawl & Blanket has a new sister called the Fluffy Meringue Vest. All of these are similar in concept. The vest starts off the same way as the shawl but on Row 25, the pattern is slightly changed to include armholes. Row 26 picks up the pattern once again and then from there, it continues just like the shawl.

For the second armhole make 3 “sprays” then repeat from * to * to the end of row.

Return to following the pattern.  So on row 26  when you hit those chains work the pattern as you have been using the chains as necessary to place your stitches.

Tutorial

The tutorial is demonstrating the Shawl. Use the variation above for Row 25 & 26 to continue your shawl.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    Could someone tell me the name of the “cake” used to create the Vest??? Can’t seem to find it no matter where I look. LOVE that color combo and hoping it hasn’t been discontinued!
