looking for a very easy to crochet vest pattern

I have been donating crocheted blankets and hats and need a pattern for a vest. Hopefully, after I master a vest I can try a sweater!! Thank you to all of you in advance for helping me with this project, Cheryl

How about trying this from our website --
crochet vest

I don't think it has a button band, but still seems to close up well against the cold. I think we have gotten a few of these in the past, and the design seems to be one of the better fitting garments for crochet, yet simple construction. Will be useful if you can post your experience with the pattern here for others. Thanks.

Would be good if we can find a pullover style vest for crochet.

I saw a boy's vest that used a zipper on a Knit and Crochet Today show (available on dvd, too). They demonstrated a man's size, then indicated a boy's size was available.

They stressed buying the zipper after making the garment to get the correct size, and then simply hand-stitching the zipper in place (noting that the zipper would have to be openable at the bottom, as for a jacket).
