Welcome to Knit the Runway, a new series on translating the hottest trends into your knitting and crochet projects.
Summer may be nearing its end, but you can still wear some of the hottest warm-weather trends, even as seasons and weather change. The drapey vest has been everywhere this year, taking the flowy garment market away from last winter’s ponchos. It’s easy to see why — they’re versatile. The same vest can go from work to social events, warm to cold weather, and look great everywhere. They’re also good for every body type, from short to tall and thin to curvy. No wonder the look has been spotted on tons of celebrities, red carpets, and runways, like these on Emmy Rossum and Victoria Beckham:
This makes vests a great candidate for moving from the runway to your needles or hooks. They’re easy to size, fun to make, and will bring your wardrobe from summer to fall. We’ve got some great patterns so you can be on trend with your next project, no matter your level or favorite craft.
