Climbing Vine Vest
Since crocheting can sometimes take a while, I love projects that you can wear all year round. This vest made from silk can easily be layered over a cami in the summer for a dressy tank top or over a buttoned down shirt in the winter for a polished vest. As with all my patterns, the construction is both written out and diagrammed in symbols. The pattern was originally published in Inside Crochet Issue 9 in UK terms. The version available to download is in US terms.
