9 Crochet Vest Patterns for Kids

Free Kids Crochet Vest Patterns

Boho Toddler VestSweet Everly B

Could this BE any cuter? I am absolutely in love with this, and I know my daughter would love wearing this boho crochet vest! The fringe is just adorable, and I love that it’s constructed in one piece, with just two short shoulder seams.

Glenda Vest –

This gorgeous lace vest is such a cute fashion statement for a little girl! The corner to corner lace pattern is just slightly textured to create a really neat shading pattern that almost looks like you’re using a self-striping yarn! It’s written for a size 4T, but you could easily use this technique to scale up or down for a different fit- I would love to see it in an oversized tunic version!

Boys Springtime Vest

This adorable vest is just the perfect Easter outfit for your little man! This would look so great with khakis, or even jeans and a long sleeved tee. So, so cute!

Pocket full of Posies Vestthe Lavender Chair

I first found this gorgeous crochet mandala vest pattern for toddlers on Pinterest, but lost track of it. I’m so happy to have come across it again! I really love the look of circular vest patterns for toddlers like this one- and I have a cake yarn just waiting to be made into a vest for my daughter- in this same exact colorway, even!

Tropical Chevron TopMy Hobby is Crochet

This amazing top could be worn as a tunic dress in a warm climate, or as a vest over a cute coordinating top for colder weather. It’s adorable, and tropical, and handmade with love. What more could a little girl ask for?

Banana Split Baby Vest – Lion Brand Yarn

This adorable cardigan style vest is made with Lion Brand Ice Cream Yarn- which is SO soft and snuggly! The finer weight means this vest will be super soft for baby, and warm without being too hot. But you were sold at that adorable photo, weren’t you? You may have to register for an account with Lion Brand Yarns if you don’t already have one, but they have so many awesome designs (and yarns!) that it’s well worth signing up.

Uptown VestPattern Paradise

This adorable kids vest crochet pattern is so cute! I would love for my son to wear one of these to dress up a favorite tee in the fall. Even better, it would look really cute in my daughter’s favorite colors, too- absolutely worth $5.00 on Ravelry!

Sunkissed Hooded VestBlackstone Designs

I love this toddler crochet vest pattern because it is just the perfect little jacket for a Florida kid- or really any kiddo who needs  just a bit of extra warmth without the bulk of a heavy coat. Perfect for those mild weather winters we have down here, or that transitional period between fall and winter. $5.99 on Ravelry. Bonus? It comes in adult sizes, too!

Kids Plaid Zipper Front VestA Crocheted Simplicity

Buffalo Plaid is definitely a soft spot for me. I love it almost as my son loves pockets. I think he would LOVE this vest, and I am such a huge fan of Jennifer Pionk’s designs- they’re always so well written and easy to follow! Absolutely a steal at $6.00 on Ravelry.
