Girl’s Boho Crochet Vest

July 18, 2017

My oldest LOVED this Boho Vest that I made her. It’s cute, fun, sparkly, and fringe-y.

It’s hard to see in the picture, but the yarn I used has metallic threads that sparkle just a bit. It’s such a cute accessory. I think it would be adorable layered with a sundress.

Want to make an adult version? I’ve got you covered! Check out my pattern here: Boho Tank Top Crochet Pattern

CONSTRUCTION

Once  you have 7 squares, line them up like this:

Crochet them together by slip stitching the back loops together. Put first two squares together, right side facing out, insert hook through first back loops of both and slip stitch, continue following the arrows until it’s all one piece.

Turn your work so there are four squares across the top. You’re going to make the straps. Attach yarn to the tip of the first square, ch 18 (adjust the amount of chains to your liking, if needed), attach to the top of next square (make sure not to twist the chain). Fasten off. Weave in the ends. Do the same for the next strap.

Turn work right side up. You’re going to sc around the outside of the tank. Starting at the corner of the far right square, single crochet in each stitch and chain across, all the way to the opposite corner and then work along the bottom, then join to your first sc.

Then work single crochets on the inside of each strap

Now you’ll be working along the bottom.  Insert your hook in the farthest right corner (I started with the wrong side up), ch  4 (counts as dc + ch 1) skip one stitch, dc, *ch 1, skip one stitch, dc* repeat from * to * all the way to the end. (if there’s an extra stitch, don’t worry. Just fudge it and skip two stitches in the end or add another dc)

Ch 1, turn, *sc in chain space,  (2dc, ch 2, 2dc) in next chain space* repeat from * to * across. Fasten off weave in the ends.

Add fringe in each ch 2 space. I used 3 10 inch strands in each. Then trim to your liking.

Add a button to one of the corners. I used the corner space of the opposite square as the button hole.

  1. LOVE the boho crochet vest want to make now !!! Only have regular worsted weight yarn (ie not cotton) would that work ?

    1. Hi Jane! Yes, as long as the yarn is worsted, it should work great. For a size 3-4, I would only make rounds 1 – 3 of the granny square. Hope this helps 😊
