A friend of mine has been learning crocheting and asked whether I would show her nice and easy crochet pattern. One of the most used pattern in modern and vintage clothes was used between two rows of square motifs in the popular beige crochet skirt and chosen as main pattern in these crochet tops and dresses:
Simply endless possibilities for your creativity! Recently I made a versatile pattern using these popular stitches. With the same crochet tutorial you can make:
① Long sleeveless vest with asymmetrical high-low hem for sizes XS-4XL (looks amazing with a pair of jeans and booties)
② Long jacket with bell sleeves and asymmetrical high-low hem for sizes XS-XL (front is low and back is high)
③ Long jacket with bell sleeves and straight hem for sizes XS-XL (match it with dresses and jeans)
④ Jacket with three quarter sleeves for sizes XS-XL (for wearing over your dresses of trousers)
⑤ Short sleeveless vest for sizes XS-4XL (literally matches most everything)
Scalloped hem, accentuated waist and a front lace-up tie closure add a unique spin to your crochet beach look. The garment in photos was made for size M, but it fits size S if you make the front closure tighter and L if you prefer more relaxed fit (make the front closure wider).
High-low asymmetrical variant looks fine with jeans. For wearing it with skirts straight bottom will be preferable.
Suitable thread for this project: Lace / 3 ply / 500 m in 100 gr / 550 yards in 3.5 oz.
I have divided instructions in one sleeveless Vest-version and Cardigan version with sleeves.
Sleeveless short and long crochet Vest for sizes XS-4XL is available on Etsy and my shop:
Short and long crochet Cardigan with three quarter sleeves or bell sleeves for sizes XS-XL is available on Ravelry and my shop:
