Baby Girl Picot Vest

Make this crochet baby vest for your baby girl to wear this summer. It will be the perfect accessory to go over a t-shirt or a long-sleeved shirt, making it great for transitional and winter weather too!

Disclaimer: This is an open stitch pattern, making it easy for babies to get their fingers caught within the lace. Do not leave the baby unattended while wearing this vest.

The Size

The finished size is for a 6-month-old. However, if you need to make changes, the stitch multiple for the back panel is 8+1, and then the front panels are half the amount of stitches as for the back, with a multiple of 4+1 for each side. The length and armholes are also super easy to adjust for other sizes.

The Yarn

Bernat Baby Sport, a light #3 acrylic yarn, is my go-to yarn for making simple baby items such as this one. I prefer to work off a big ball, but small balls in the same weight category will work too.

I used about 55g to make this one.

The Stitch Pattern

The stitch pattern is easy for intermediate crocheters. The first row is worked with single crochets and picots worked on top of the single crochets. Then in the next row, chain-5 spaces are made over the picots to give you a pretty lace. Lastly, another row of picots worked in with single and double crochets to keep things even around the chain-5 loops.

The neck shaping is done over four rows.

As for the button, I used this crochet button pattern, but any button of your choice can work.
