Vests are so much faster to crochet than sweaters. They can add a finishing touch to an outfit. Crochet one for the entire family. Here you'll find an assortment of different styles. You can change the colors of yarn to match your wardrobe or use a color that is now in style.

      Barbara, I remember those too now that you mention it. I wouldn't mind wearing one when I visit my family up north.

      teaches12345, I remember when they wore those long vests in the 70's. I think an entire sweater that went down to the ankles would be nice when we have a bad winter. I suppose it would be hard to walk in a sweater though. The vests would be better for that. Thanks for commenting.

      Thanks for the information. I didn't know vests could go to your ankles, this would be really nice on a fall day.

      RTalloni, Thanks for reading. It is too bad that we don't have more time to crochet all of the projects we would like. There are so many nice ones. The boys vest is especially nice looking and hard to believe it only use single and double crochet.

      What a nice collection of vests! That little boy's vest is very tempting, and I like several others, as well.
