Forget everything you know about crochet. The Nordansjö pullover vest is soft and flexible with drape and structure – and, yes, it is crocheted. The technique takes a bit of practice, but, with a light hand and the U. S. J-10 / 6 mm hook, you’ll soon finish this winter’s prettiest basic garment. It slips on just as well over a shirt or t-shirt as a dress. If you prefer a buttoned vest, see our pattern Dalsjö – crocheted vest.
