The Fest Vest Crochet Pattern

June 25, 2018

Oh. My. GOODNESS. I am so excited to share this fun, summer pattern with you! The Fest Vest Crochet Pattern is my new favorite thing to wear! Since it’s made from cotton it’s lightweight and is durable enough to wear by the pool or the beach. How cute would it be over a swim suit, tho?!

I used Caron Cotton Cakes in Calico Flowers to make this cute summer vest. I love this bright and beautiful colorway. The color changes are abrupt with this yarn, but by using the granny stripe stitch it really lessens the sudden change in color. There are plenty of rows that start a new color right in the middle and you can’t really even tell!

The main body of the piece is one rectangle and then the hood sewn on. It’s all done with a really simple granny stripe stitch. I can’t believe I’ve never used this stitch before! It’s so easy and I love the look, especially with stripes. I definitely have a few more ideas with this stitch coming up in the future.
