Inspiration Behind the Design

I love open front cardigans. They are a major staple in my closet. One thing I realized though, long sleeve, heavier ones were abundant. I was lacking in short sleeved or lightweight ones for the warming weather of spring and summer. So I set about designing my own. I love creating my own handmade crochet garments, and decided a crochet vest would be an ideal piece.

The vest uses a nice uncomplicated stitch repeat to make it an easy and soothing crochet experience. A simple construction of a back panel and then split for two front panels, a quick seaming and you’re done!
