Crochet vest from Boston Proper. Starting...

Notes and charts for this vest are available here:

http://outstandingcrochet.blogspot.ru/2014/06/freepatterncrochetlongvest.html




One of my readers here shared followed link where girls are making that vest.
http://club.osinka.ru/topic-73911
I checked it out, even suggested abcrew to look into it.
Girls are doing really well, no offense, but something important FOR ME is missing.
Here are the motives:
I think distances between squares must be longer. That is what makes this vest standing out.
So I spent some time today to try it out. Here what I made.


I used cotton #5 and hook #2. I think a little bit thicker yarn would be better, but I've bought that thread an year ago (!) and I am sick and tired of trying to figure out for the whole year what to make out of it! 
I think with blue jeans and white top it will look really nice in summer.

  2. How do you connect the motifs? Do you connect as you go?

    1. That's right. In the intersection of 4 squares, I connect them when I do the last one.

  4. I really like the Blue you chose. It works well with the motif. I think once it's finished it will be very pretty!!! :) You are so talented. This is one project I really look forward to trying (after I finish so many others).

    1. Thank you, Samantha.
      I left it to rest for a couple days since it was driving me crazy. I am done with lower part and started upper from the waist and I had to rip it off and crochet again so many times in order of decreasing look even. Uffff! We need to separate for a couple days.

    1. Hi Sherri, I have some charts I made, but not a complete pattern. It could be a help, but a lot to figure out by yourself. There is no pattern exists for this vest.

  68. Hello Natalia
    It is a spectacular design. I am a beginner, but just want to make this design.
    I would like to know how to connect the squares?
    The squares at the top are not equal to those below ... right? Have the diagram on top?
    thank you very much

    1. Hi Ana! I've send you an e-mail. Hopefully it'll help.Honestly, I am so tired of that vest! :)) People want a good pattern, but since it's not my design, I feel wrong to master it, so what I have is really horrible, but you know why. I make my patterns differently, very clear. I am afraid it makes a bad impression on people. Good luck!

  69. My daughter really likes this vest and wants me to make it for her. I've spent the last 45 minutes looking around different sites you mention and haven't had any luck tho' I found other great things. And I think I found the pattern in Russian. No luck in English. Here's my email address so you could please send me what you have. themicelady@gmail.com Thanks! You do beautiful work!
