This little flutter vest is such a fun accessory to add to any closet. It can be dressed up for fancy occasions or dressed down with jeans and a tee shirt and look just as good! It’s a quick project but will quickly become a staple of your wardrobe. It’s the perfect layering piece. This project is worked in turned rows using pretty basic stitches and consists of only 20 rows! It should be doable for intermediate crocheters.

Sizes: Small (Medium, Large, Extra Large). This sizing should correlate to your tee-shirt size.

Yarn: Your choice should have at least 50% animal fiber content so it will block properly.

Techniques: This pattern uses US crochet instructions/abbreviations, using single crochet, double crochet, triple crochet, triple crochet 5 together, picoting, and picking up stitches.

Notions: Six stitch markers, blocking mat, rinse-free wool wash, blocking wires (optional, but very helpful), and t-pins.
