Beachy boho crochet vest crochet pattern

By May 15, 2019 No Comments

This winter felt like a long one so Im excited that summer is right around the corner, and it shows in my latest pattern for this beauty boho vest. Crochet lends itself well to summer garments because you can really go crazy with lacy or open stitch patterns that are light weight and flattering.

I used Bernat Maker home dec yarn which is a chunky so your vest will work up quickly. But don’t worry its 72 % cotton so your vest won’t end up heavy or too bulky.  Click right here to grab your Bernat Maker yarn.

I love a garment that works up quickly and my beachy boho vest does just that! First make the bottom panel in this beautiful honeycomb stitch pattern. Trust me, its easier than it looks! Continue with a quick and simple offset mesh pattern and you’ve created your back and front panels!

Let’s do it!
