Hippie Dippie Vest - Free Crochet Pattern

The Hippie Dippie Crochet Vest is easy to make and perfect for spring and summer months! Read ahead to get the free pattern or purchase the PDF on Ravelry! (Every sale means so much to me and helps keep my blog running - thank you!)


I'm so excited that I got to work with Premier Yarns and one of their newest yarns - Luna! I choose the color "Mars", which has all the pretty neutrals in one ball!

All the Luna yarns are named after planets and there are very pretty colorways! You can find all the colors to choose from here.





When I got this yarn, I knew I wanted to make a garment that was nice and flowy for the warmer months. The yarn is a weight 3, which is perfect for light garments!

Personally, I can't find many weight 3 yarns so I was really happy to see that these pretty yarns were light weight!


I coupled double crochets and filets to make this vest super breathable and airy for spring and summer. This makes for a very easy crochet garment - especially since all it is is 3 rectangles and some sewing together!

I'm going to be honest, I never even wore a vest before. But after making this one, I love it! I love that I can just dress up a simple tee shirt and when it gets really warm, I can throw it over a tank top!


It's super light weight and it's longer and flowy in the front which makes it so fun! I love the texture this vest has to offer and this will definitely be a staple in my wardrobe this summer!

Grab your Luna Yarns and get this vest started!

Pattern notes

This vest will be made in 3 pieces and sewn together at the sides and top.

Sizes are as follows:
XS/S 28” - 34" bust
M/L 36” - 42” bust
Xl/2X 44” - 50” bust
3X/4X 52” - 58” bust

*If you are petite like me (4’11”), I recommend starting with 79 chains in the beginning and follow the rest of the pattern as written. This will take off a few inches off the length.

Abbreviations (US terms):
Ch = chain, sc = single crochet, dc = double crochet, tr = treble crochet, sk = skip, st = stitch(es)

Gauge:
4" x 4" = 15 st x 6 rows in dc

Free Pattern

Row 1: Ch 85, dc into 3rd chain from hook and across, turn
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as st), dc across, turn
Row 3: Ch 4 (counts as st plus ch), *sk 1, tr into next st, ch 1, repeat from * across, tr in turning ch turn
Row 4: Ch 3, *dc in ch 1 sp from previous row, dc in next st, repeat from * across, turn
Repeat Row 2-4 until you have 20 (23, 26, 29) rows
Repeat Row 2
Fasten off

This finished the back panel of the vest.

Next, we will make two of the front panels. Work the following for both panels:

Row 1: Ch 85, dc into 3rd chain from hook and across, turn
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as st), dc across, turn
Row 3: Ch 4 (counts as st plus ch), *sk 1, tr into next st, ch 1, repeat from * across, tr in turning ch turn
Row 4: Ch 3, *dc in ch 1 sp from previous row, dc in next st, repeat from * across, turn
Repeat Row 2-4 until you have 17 (20, 23, 26) rows
Repeat Row 2
Fasten off

Assembly

Use the photo below as a guide to sew your 3 panels together.

Lay the back panel down first (pink rectangle in photo).
Lay down one front panel on top of the back panel lining up the outer right edge. (blue rectangle in photo)

Sew together the top right portion of the panels towards the middle over 4” (XS-L) or 6” (Xl-4X). This seam will sit on the shoulder.

Sew down the right hand side leaving an 7”(8”, 9”, 10”) armhole at the top.

The first panel is now sewn onto the back panel.

Sew the second panel on the other side of the back panel.

Weave in all ends
