Boho Chic Vest

Updated: Nov 16, 2020


I'm going to start by saying, I'm not entirely sure if this is "boho-chic" but it definitely gives me that vibe. What do you think? I saw a vest on a boutique website I frequent (I have more than just a yarn habit) and I fell in love. It was $50 and I didn't feel like my want-cost ratio was met (I've stolen that term from Landon). [Want-Cost Ratio: The amount you want something should outweigh the cost or you shouldn't purchase it.]


The most illogical thing is- by the time I finished the project, I was about to that cost anyways! ha! If you're a crocheter like me (or any type of maker) you'll understand the sense of accomplishment you get from creating something and I think that balanced the scales for me.

Plus, I get to share the pattern with all of you!


While my "inspiration" (aforementioned boutique vest) is no where near identical to my finished product- I matched the vibe of it. I originally intended to add fringes but decided to leave without.
