Quick Overview

Crochet along with designer Gena Hester as she shows you all the ins and outs of creating her stunning summer vest. This is a 5-6 week session (depending on the pace of the group) that will meet on Friday nights 6-8pm.


Join us on Friday Nights starting on June 22nd to make this breezy summery Crocheted Circular Vest. We'll get together 6-8pm and I'll walk you through the various steps and techniques you'll need to know for this vest.


Since this has been one of my favourite projects over the last few years (I think I’ve made 5), and it isn’t the easiest project I’ve designed, I thought it would be a great idea to have a Crochet-A-Long and make one together.  I think you will enjoy the relaxation of going around in a circle just enough different rounds to make for an interesting project as well. When I see a new yarn, it’s always tempting to start a new vest and I would love to help you pick out your yarn for this CAL.


The basic stitches we'll be using are Chain, Single Crochet, Double Crochet, and Treble Crochet. We'll be combining these three basic stitches to create an open lace effect. This project is perfect for someone who is already a beginner and wants to take their skills up to an intermediate level. It is a large project, and can be intimidating, but we'll be breaking it down into 5 or 6 weekly sessions, depending on how quickly the group progresses.


This is a great project that can be worn multiple ways. Once you get your gauge right, I'll show you how to adapt this vest to any size, so if you're looking for a creative project to share with your teen during the summer holidays why not create this beautiful project together?


If you need to learn to crochet in advance of this CAL please drop in to our free classes and help session on Tuesdays 4-6pm, and Saturdays 3-5pm.


Each session is formated so that we walk you through the tricky bits and get you started on the stitch pattern that you will need to repeat and work on in between weekly sessions. If at any point during the week you get stuck on your pattern, or if you can't make a Friday session and you need to make it up, you're always welcome to drop in to our help sessions as well, Tuesdays 4-6 and Saturdays 3-5pm.


Our last session will end in a Friday night excursion into town where we all show off our vests!


Session 1: June 22nd

Checking your gauge, and working flat in the round.


Session 2: June 29th

Taking shoulder measurements, working the armhole, starting the V stitch pattern.

Session 4: July 13th

Continue mid pattern repeat or Begin lace edging pattern (depending on how far along everyone is)

Last Session: July 20th or July 27th

Steam blocking with the iron, and out to town to strut our stuff!
