Hi! My name is Katy and I designed this original pattern. I hope you love it just as much as I do! All my patterns are written in English using American crochet terms. All patterns assume basic stitch knowledge. You may sell what you make from my patterns.
The Calquato Vest is a cowl neck bottom up construction vest that is a great match over a t-shirt or button up shirt. Made with bulky yarn this is a suitable project for the advance beginner crocheter. The yarn choice allows this pattern to be worked up quickly. The front pocket detail adds a sporty touch to the vest.
