May CAL Embossed Crochet Vest Week Three

Posted on May 22, 2017 by Lianka Azulay | 0 Comments

Week Three - Part One of the Embossed Crochet Boho Vest

We've finally arrived: The first set of instructions for the Embossed Crochet Boho Vest! 

While I’ve been writing, testing and waiting to get to this point, I've found myself thoroughly hooked--pun intended--on crocheting this vest!  I simply cannot resist wanting to see it in every one of the beautiful yarn colors from my new Dream Swirl collection. Though, of course family and friends have already placed dibs on the colors -they- want me to make for them. You know the drill--if I'm able to make and keep even one of this babies for myself, it will be a major feat!

I’ve also found that this project works up quite quickly. Once you finish the back section, which you'll do this week, the remainder of the vest is mostly straightforward familiar crochet. It's quick enough that you might even eventually find yourself in my "predicament" of wanting to make several of these vests.  

If you are new to our May CAL, please visit the Week One and Week Two posts, and join our Fun with Furls Facebook group where we share our progress, questions and all things crochet.

 

Embossed Crochet Boho Vest in Lollipop

This week the colors of Dream Swirl in Lollipop had my name written on them!

Let the fun begin!

This week were are going to crochet the back section with the Embossed Crochet motif. Next week we'll adorn the back with a Crocodile Stitch Border and the remaining body of the vest.

Pattern Notes:          

  1. The beauty of knitted cable leaves has been “translated” to crochet in this Embossed Crochet Boho Vest. The vest is made in seamless circular construction that is flattering for any body type.
  2. This pattern is rated as intermediate. The skills required to complete this project are: crocheting in the round (rnd), chain (ch), slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc), double treble crochet (dtr), V-stitch (V-st: dc 1, ch 1, dc 1), front post double crochet (FPdc) and back post double crochet (BPdc). If you need help, please do not hesitate to contact us at patternsupport@bonitapatterns.com.
  3. In some rounds throughout the pattern, motif tends to cup or ruffle. This is not an error in the instructions. Subsequent rounds will even out the cupping or ruffling and create the embossed look.

A Note About Comments

Furls Crochet Team

November 9th, 2016

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
