This long cardigan vest is the perfect addition to your late summer/fall wardrobe. It is long, yet light and airy, and is the perfect casual vest over jeans and a t-shirt. It also pairs well with long sleeves and turtlenecks for an extra layer in the fall. This vest would look super cute over a mini skirt with tall boots!

The Wildflower Pool Cardi Vest is an easy, beginner pattern. It uses a stitch called the rope stitch, which is similar to the v-stitch, but with more chain spaces between each ‘v’. The only stitches needed for this vest are chain, single crochet, double crochet and slip stitch. It is created by crocheting three rectangles and seaming them together. Then a simple border is added. The color pattern is created using a technique called “pooling.” Stripes are worked using two different balls of yarn, with the colors changing in opposite order. That way certain colors “pool” together, while stripes of different colors form in between.
