The Draped In Diamonds Crochet Vest pattern is a lacy vest that allows you show off your feminine curves, create curves in different places, hide curves, and be worn for comfort. It can be handcrafted with a soft acrylic or a natural fiber blend yarn with a subtle sparkle so you can shine like a diamond without being too bold.
Although it may look like a complicated lace pattern, it is an intermediate pattern that is a quick project for the advanced crocheter, and it’s a great project for an advanced beginner crocheter to master the chain, single crochet and double crochet stitches. This design lacks any shaping, and would be a great project for one’s first crochet clothing.
