A toddler crochet vest pattern that is perfect for beginner crocheters, plus it has a boho fringe.

How many times do you see a cute top and think “I could make that”? You shop for yarn only to realize it would have been cheaper to buy the top. I know the quality of handmade and the feeling of accomplishment doesn’t have a price, but it’s still a little disheartening.

This all started by dreaming of the lake, warm sunshine, and a strawberry margarita. A swimsuit cover up was the plan. After crocheting a swatch, the stitch pattern was better suited for a vest. The airy boho feel is created by alternating half double crochets and chains. I love everything boho; crop tops, flower crowns, and anything with fringe.

What Most Crocheters Hate

Seaming pieces together and sewing in ends is the worst part of crocheting. I wanted to make the boho vest all in 1 piece. The only seams to sew together are the shoulders.

If you are a beginner to crochet, a vest is the perfect 1st garment to try. Clothing is intimidating. I waited years before I took the plunge. I didn’t want to waste all that time and yarn only to have a lopsided cardigan taking up space in my closet. So I made one for my daughter. Here are a few more toddler crochet patterns. Surprisingly, it turned out. Don’t let fear hold you back.
