Quick Overview

This pattern is inspired by my hippie days and brings back the nostalgia and freedom of my youth. But it's also a great contemporary pattern as the 60's fashions come back. This vest is so fun to wear, the way it drapes and flows around you, I guarantee you will love the sensation.

Details

People will stop you in the street to comment on how much they love your vest!

 

Not only is it super sensual to wear, its great fun to make. It's crocheted completely in the round, and I love making it so much I've made 7 different versions, in different colors, and yarn weights! This kit is for a DK weight yarn and is a special order item, please allow up to three weeks for delivery.

 

The sample shown is made in Kraemer "Belfast" in the color "Peat". The kit includes enough yarn to make the small size, approximately 48" long and fits up to at least a 40" bust. To give you an idea- the model here is 5'1". If you need a larger size you will need to add several hundred yards, 220 yards makes 2 - 3 lace finishing rounds. Please use the link below to order more of your chosen yarn, or give us a call on 1-888-538-2725 and we'll sort everything out for you.

 

If you want to make this vest in a different colored yarn, you can order your yarn and other notions separately and upon check out let us know you're making this vest, and we'll include the pattern and make sure you have everything you need. Or you can give us a call Toll Free on 1-888-538-2725 and we can bundle it up for you.

  • Free Bohemian Vest Crochet Pattern

  • Optional Soft Touch Crochet Hook Size I (5.5mm) (recommended)
  • Optional Stitch Markers (to mark the begining of each row)

For a Self Striping Colorful Vest- Mary Maxim 'Prism' (5 skeins)

 

Sizing: 
The pattern is written for a small size with directions for making the vest larger (this vest looks great on many body shapes-continuing with rows at the end will make it longer and wider around your body). The vest is approximately 48" long and fits up to at least a 40" bust. If you are petite, you may want to consider taking 2 rounds off the bottom (stop at Round 33).

Gauge: 
Start this project and when you have completed Round 5, the diameter (measure across the circle) should be close to 4 1/4". If it is more, start over with a smaller hook; If it is smaller, start over with a larger hook. Gauge is very important in this project for fit across the back and the collar to look great. Directions are provided to make larger as you progress.

Basic Skills Necessary:
Chain, Single Crochet, Double Crochet, Treble Crochet, Skip, Slip Stitch

This is also available as a finished item if you don't want to make it yourself, or you can buy the pattern by itself.
