The Maria Vest - CAL with Furls Crochet


I'm so excited to be hosting this month's CAL with Furls Crochet.

When I signed up at the beginning of 2020 to do this in August, there was 
no telling what this year was going to be like.

I'm grateful that I was able to crochet the days away in isolation.  It kept my mind sane and kept me busy.  I'm also grateful for the time I was able to spend with my Grandmother over the month of June.  She lived a very healthy 88 years of life. Nothing stopped her.  She lived on her own, took the bus to visit friends, did her own grocery shopping, and went every month for a manicure and pedicure (even in the Winter!). The last 4 weeks of her life were taken by an aggressive liver cancer.
I know she would of lived past one hundred if this disease never existed.

I named this pattern “The Maria Vest,” after my Grandmother.  During the last month I spent with her, I started and finished this vest.  It’s very special to me and 
I hope you all enjoy making it as much as I did.

The Maria Vest crochet pattern has simple stitches that leave a gorgeous detail in every row.  
It’s a perfect beginner pattern that includes repeated stitches and mindless crocheting – the perfect project while you watch your favourite show.

This pattern will be memorized quite easily after the first few rows 
making this such a fun and easy Summer project.

I used the Furls Streamline - Ergonomic Wooden Crochet Hook in Teak.
I love these hooks so much!  
They are so lightweight,  and I feel like I crochet so much faster with them. 

Check out these amazing hooks HERE.

This is an easy detailed crochet vest that will be a perfect addition to your wardrobe. Layer it over a tank top and shorts, a bathing suit, or a t-shirt and jeans.  The Maria Vest is perfect for a day at the beach or a Summer night out with your friends.
