july hoodie vest jacket free crochet pattern

We are in the middle of July now. Time fly by! This month is just the beginning of the raining season here in Thailand woohoo!

So I was tempt to make a boylish hooded vest jacket but they are turn out to be the girly girl pretty vest cardigan instead.

 

But this time it is perfect right of the hook and I did add  a zipper to the crochet piece too.

 

It was my first time to add zipper to crochet project especially garment, oh well they are super easy guy! I  did not have sewing machine so I did hand sew and oh they are quick to do. and I even add a pocket as well.

 

I make them with chunky acrylic chunky  yarn  with 6 mm crochet hook.

 

SO Let’s get start!

– I used bulky yarn, yarn weight 5 bulky. , The one  That I would recommend is from knitpicks  Brava bulky yarn, 100% arcylic They have a great varities at a good price!!! I Love them ^^.  Brava bulky yarn.

Or you could go for cotton blend for comfy texture with Plymouth Jeannee Chunky Yarn.

Even go for luxury  and toasty warm  100% wool with Cloudborn Superwash Merino Bulky Yarn.

I am using about   1400 yard all together.
