This vest speaks to me! To make this gorgeous vest, you’ll crochet a ruffled neckline and attach it to a shaped piece of leather (or faux leather, of course!) I suppose fabric could work in a pinch, too, if you’re handier than me with a sewing machine! Crochet and leather are two of my greatest weaknesses. And he just went and combined them into one garment!

  1. The vest that fits my style the best is the Lovely Lace Vest. The motifs are so pretty and feminine. No matter what color you make this vest in it will look beautiful.

    1. I agree, the Lovely Lace Vest would look great in any shade! I love that as a crocheter, I can adapt patterns to suit the look I’m going for just by changing the yarn I use. It would look sweet and cutesy/country in a soft, off white, but you could add some punch to it by using neon and pairing it with jeans and a tee… or go for a classic lace look in pastel… <3 The possibilities are endless!

    1. Clare- I agree! Honestly, I think vests are the BEST way to break into crochet garment making! I’ve done a few dresses and sweaters, but vests are much easier (and they really fit my beachy summery wardrobe for Florida!). Happy crocheting! ~Katie

  2. It is really hard to pick so I’ve had to pick my top three instead.

    1. Clamshell lace (seriously, and not because it is your blog)
    2. Southern diamonds long vest
    And
    3. Claire vest.

    Others are cute but these three are the ones I can absolutely see myself wearing. Again and again.

    1. Hey Kristi! Thanks so much for your sweet comment! I agree, I can easily see myself wearing all your top picks, too! How funny that you picked these, because my vest was inspired by both the Southern Diamonds vest and the Claire vest! They’re just such great patterns.

      Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy crocheting- I’m sure you’ll feel fabulous in whichever vest you choose to crochet first!

    1. Yeah! I know the feeling. I signed up for the Ravelry CAL Project Challenge to shrink my queue by 5 items… Only 10 to go now! 😛

    1. Thanks! I hope this encourages you to try. And if you’re still intimidated, there are several that still ARE flat crocheted items. My Clamshell Lace Vest and Kristin Omdahl’s Claire Vest are two such. 😀 Good luck, I’m sure you’ll nail making a vest!

    1. Yes! Exactly! I love how you can change the look of your style with a fun accessory like this, and you can change the look of the accessory by pairing it with different outfits!

    1. I wish it was cool enough to wear one down here! … but on second thought I’ll keep my 70 degree weather. Stay warm, Deborah!
