I was inspired by classic menswear patterns-– I wanted to create a crochet pattern that men would actually want to wear, rather than focusing on what the stitcher might want to stitch! Tunisian crochet with a DK weight yarn is perfect for classic pieces-– it retains its shape but isn’t stiff or bulky.
The body of the vest is in Tunisian Simple Stitch; the decorative panel on the front is in a basketweave pattern if Tunisian Knit and Tunisian Purl.
