I am all about the basics right now. The Tied and True Tee was the ideal basic tee and now I’ve got the ideal basic vest for you!
Look great wearing this vest over literally any outfit! It’s a quick workup and only uses basic crochet stitches to create the amazing lacy look!
I wanted to create a crochet vest that was lightweight and flowy! Something very simple, but pretty, that would go with any outfit!
The fingering weight yarn choice was made to give it that lovely flow and drape that I wanted. The lacy stitch work also helped with that.
I decided on the long, duster style length because I wanted it to have that modern boho look. It turned out exactly as I pictured it in my head!
I used Knit Picks Stroll Tweed for this design.Stroll tweed is a fingering weight (#1) yarn made up of 65% superwash merino, 25% nylon, and 10% donegal. It is a really true tweed yarn and it comes in 20 different colorways!
The tweed wasn’t bad to work with. Pulling out my stitches was a bit difficult at times, but that happens with any tweed yarn.The drape on this yarn was amazing! It was super soft and flowy, especially after blocking!
This vest does require blocking! I am going to put that out there right now. You will want to block your project to get the length and drape you see in the photos. I wet blocked my vest before I seamed the shoulders together. Since it’s such a lightweight yarn and has such open stitch work it only took about 2 hours to dry.
The Summer Stroll Vest crochet pattern comes in sizes XS-2X.
You will crochet the vest from the bottom up with just a tiny bit of seaming at the shoulders.
Also, the pattern has pictures on how to fold the vest and where to seam it. You’ll also get the multiples in which the stitches are worked so you can make the pattern as big or as small as you like.
