Bohemian Crocheted Circular Vest Pattern
People will stop you on the street to comment on how stunning your vest is- guaranteed.
This Crocheted Circular Vest is not only super fun to wear, it's relaxing and rhythmic to crochet.
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 pattern is for a DK weight yarn.
There are a ton of ways to wear this crocheted vest, you can see a few I've put together above.One of the easiest ways to change the look is to change the way you wear the collar, you can bunch it up and have it on top of your shoulders so the ruffles frame your chest area and your shoulders are visible.
Or drape the collar over your shoulders so that they are covered and the design hangs down, showing off your lace work.
Materials you will need:
● 1,320 yards DK weight yarn for the small size. Add several hundred yards for larger sizes. Keep in mind 220 yards only makes 2 - 3 lace finishing rounds.
● Size I (5.5 mm) crochet hook - I prefer Soft Touch as it is very comfortable for this larger project.
● Attachable stitch markers to mark row beginnings.
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 rounds at the end of the pattern 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). The model in this photo is 5'1" which gives you an idea of how low it will hang.
Start following the pattern, 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.
