Maglia Crochet Mesh Vest Pattern

Phew! I am glad this crochet mesh vest pattern made it’s release in summer! It works up so fast and I love how customizable it is-leave off the fringe, make it longer, you name it. I love a good layering piece.

It was such an easy pattern that I made two mesh vests, one in Pagoda and one in Heather Grey-got my color and neutral covered! And I chose two different styles of fringe too. I love giving you options and seeing all your beautiful choices in turn!

I designed the Maglia (just ignore the g-if you don’t know Italian ;)) Mesh Vest to be worn open in the front and I kept the length short to accommodate the added fringe. I give you some tips on adjusting things for your liking below.

One of my lovely testers gifted the XS to her granddaughter and she looks amazing in it! She wanted a long look and she got it! This vest is truly versatile.






The vest is worked in all one piece from the bottom of the back up to the neck where you’ll begin one shoulder and work down the front panel. Then you’ll repeat for the other side. To finish it up you’ll add the side detail, which is my favorite part of this design. I love a picot, even though it was a bit tricky to learn when I first came across it years ago. (Don’t worry there’s a video for that!)

I’ve included video tutorials for all the parts of the vest, although it’s such an easy pattern you may not need them.

Materials:

6mm J (10) hook*, or hook needed to achieve gauge.




Caron Simply Soft*, or other #4 worsted weight yarn-approximately:

1 skein (315 yds)  for XS-S

2 skeins (630 yds) for M-XL

3 skeins (945)  for 2X-3X

Yarn needle*, measuring tape and scissors




Gauge:

Swatch: 2″x 2″ = 7 dcs  x 4 rows

Pics of my sample:

I got (dc, ch 2, dc) in an inch & 2 rows in an inch of the mesh.

Notes:

  1. Ch 5 = dc + ch 2 The vest is worked in crochet mesh-dc + ch 2. You will always dc into the previous row’s dc, so “dc in next” means to double crochet into the next double crochet and “sk 2” means to skip the next two chains.
  2. Ch 5 counts as dc + ch 2.






Adjust for Fit

The easiest method is to go up a size, but for a more custom fit, here are a few tips.

  1. The fit of this vest is “regular” with the length (without fringe) hitting around the top-mid hip. Adding length is the easiest adjustment-just add more rows on the back panel & front panels. You will want to add extra rows before beginning the decreases. I kept the length shorter to accommodate adding fringe, but if you would like to make one without fringe then you may considering adding 3-6 more rows to the back panel and front panels.
  2. While the front panels will pull closed, they are designed to be worn open. To make them wider continue to follow the increase rows repeat in the front panel section to your desired width. Check the next size up first to see if that may be what you need.
  3. While this vest was designed with adults in mind, the smaller sizes work well on older children, but the fit will be longer and looser.
  4. The sides can also be easily modified by increasing or decreasing the number of chains.

Stitch multiple is 3 + 2 for the starting chain, if you would like to make your back panel rectangles wider to start.

Back panel:

Here are a few pictures of the finished decreases and increases in the front panel that might be helpful.

The portion of the front panel where you “Ch 5, sk all of the next: (2 chs, dc, 2 chs) and dc in the next dc.”

The front panel section where you, “Ch 5, dc in the same dc, *{ch 2, sk 2 chs, dc in next dc} rep from * across, after last dc, ch 2 and dc in same.”

The front panel is continued from the back. Attach to the opposite side of the back panel (yellow circle) to repeat the front panel on the other side. This will actually make the second panel facing the “wrong side” but crochet mesh has such a similar appearance on both sides it’s not noticeable.

All Sizes:

Attach yarn with ss to the bottom right corner of the back panel when laid in front of you. Ch 1 & sc in the same st and in each dc and ch across. Don’t cut yarn, continue to sides:

Sides:

Step 1. Ch 5, picot, ch 5, ss to first row of front panel (lined up with the same row of back panel). 3″

  1. SS up three rows, ch 5, picot, ch 5, ss to same row on back panel.
  2. SS up three rows, ch 5, picot, ch 5, ss to same row on front panel.
  3. Rep steps 2 and 3 until you’ve reached Row 21 of the back panel. (8 ch 5-picot-ch 5s)

Continue to sc around the armhole, ss and finish off.

Repeat for the other side.

Finishing-

Sc around the inside neck/front panels. To add med length fringe cut about 6” pieces of yarn-2 per ch 2 space is what I used on the teal vest-and loop it through each ch spc around the bottom.

For the grey vest I cut 4-13” pieces per ch sp and used this tutorial to do a double knot fringe. 

Double knot fringe.




Med size with short fringe.
