Waistcoat stitch: A vintage stitch (c.1915) that looks like knit - "Basically, this is a single crochet stitch done in the post of the stitch, rather than the front & back loops. It's important to keep the hook in the correct placement under the horizontal bar on the back of the stitch. Fabric is reversible." #crochetstitch #crochet


Very classic English style vest. Wondering if I can't do a better mash-up of this plus eastern style and fabrics.
