Crochet Vest Pattern: Wendy's Waistcoat

#1: Crochet Vest Pattern

Wendy’s Waistcoat by Katie Himmelberg

The textured shell pattern of this demure buttoned waistcoat creates a finished top that is both outerwear and accessory. Katie Himmelberg hooked up this little number in a combination of natural tweedy tones and added round buttons that tuck into the scalloped edge. Make a tie to cinch in the back at the high waist, and you have a modern take on the lady’s waistcoat that’s sure to please.

Crochet Tank Top Pattern: Elfin Tank

#2: Crochet Tank Top Pattern

Elfin Tank by Laura Gebhardt

This fun little tank top is equally at home over shorts at a picnic or with a long skirt for dinner and dancing on the patio. After you work the curved neckline, you crochet the front and back separately in extended single crochet from the top down, making this a perfect carry-around project. You’ll be done before you know it!

Crochet Shrug Pattern: Flora Kimono

#3: Crochet Shrug Pattern

Flora Kimono by Judith L. Swartz

A scaled-down crochet poncho pattern, the Flora Kimono creates a comfortable, loose-fitting shrug. You start out with a mesh base to form a simple background for the flowery crochet appliqué patterns. Tone-on-tone four-leaf clovers decorate the front edges, hinting at the softly colored bouquet on the back. Ties at the front hem are a versatile closure and give the feel of a crochet wrap as well as shrug.

Crochet Cardigan Pattern: Arc De Triomphe

#4: Crochet Cardigan Pattern

Arc De Triomphe Cardigan by Annette Petavy

If you can’t go to Paris, let Paris come to you with your very own elegant handmade cardigan. The soft alpaca and Tencel yarn provides warmth for the evening out while giving the densely worked crocheted cardigan fluidity. Simple shaping lets the lace shine. Ours is finished with a satin bow, but you could use a classic button for this and your other crochet cardigan patterns.
