This pattern is available for free.


Medium Weight (4) Yarn – ANY brand will do! I mixed different brands together of left over yarn I had laying around because I wanted to be a bit more conscious with this project. Some of the yarn I worked with linked here is a recent fave of mine, it’s very soft, anti-pilling and easy to work with.

5.00mm Crochet Hook – my FAVE hooks!


Darning Needles

Stitch Markers – (I personally don’t use a stitch marker for this pattern, but if you lose track of where you started easily or you’re a beginner, stitch markers are very helpful.)

Yarn needed: I used approximately 178 grams of scrap yarn to make this vest in a size S, but I am unsure how much yarn would be needed for other sizes. I’m working on how to be able to calculate the yarn needed for multiple sizes, when I figure it out I will update this blog post!


This Pattern follows size S but sizes XS-5XL are also available.

This Pattern follows US crochet terms.

Turning Ch 3 DOES count as a dc stitch in this pattern.

When making granny squares, you work in ch spaces and not in sts (unless otherwise directed to).
