Cream crochet cotton, size 10, in 350 yd. (320 m) balls - 5-7 balls; a size 7 (1.65 mm) steel crochet hook; 1/2" buttons (10-12); sewing needle; and matching sewing thread.
What was your inspiration?
I'd seen a lot of hooded vests and wanted try one in thread crochet using connect-as-you-go motifs. I love working with thread!
What are you most proud of?
I really like the motif and lacy border at the bottom. Also, it's a versatile design that can be worn with all types of outfits.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This is an easy thread crochet project. Once you connect the motifs at the bottom, the rest is a repeating pattern. This project is worked from the bottom up, starting with connect-as-you-go motifs. The body of the vest is worked all the way around, so there is no seaming necessary.
The finished chest sizes are: 34", 36-1/8, 38-1/4, 40-3/8, and 42-1/2.
This pattern is available for $4.00 and is written in U.S. terms.
