Uff! How long has it been since I last wrote here? Too long, I know… Between traveling to the family home for the holidays, getting back home a bit late into the month of January, the lack of routines for quite a while… Everything went a bit sideways. Looking at my calendar for the year, January was a total bust. But here I am, trying to get back in the game. And for that, I’m sharing a crazy project that was in the makes for more than a year! The Crochet Jasmine Vest.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a bit crazy about the jasmine stitch. I think it makes a beautiful pattern and when using a fluffy yarn it just gets this wonderful texture I can’t get enough of. I’ve used it before on My First Crochet Cowl and I loved the result but I always wondered how it would look on a bigger piece.

The project

Whatever the project, the yarn was a no-brainer. For this stitch, it had to be Drops Air. Yes, it is a bit fuzzy and it sheds a little. But! It is so soft and so warm that you forget about everything else.

It started as a sweater, but then it would just be too bulky. So to make it lighter, I changed to a vest. It was supposed to be an asymmetrical vest where you would cross one of the sides and close it, but again… too much bulkiness. “Open” is the word, otherwise it would be like going out in a not-very-flattering blanket. And since we’re talking about form, a collar would definitely help to keep it in place.

Collar detail from the vest

As for the colors… I once used a blue yarn for a cowl that I absolutely loved. It’s blue, but it has this grayish tone to it, so it changes depending on the light. And when it’s bright and sunny outside, it almost shines! Being such a blue fan, this was the color I wanted.

Because of the stitch, the piece already had a lot going on, so I didn’t want to make it too much by mixing other colors. However, it did ask for some kind of detail. Why not make a few flowers with a different tone? 🙂

The end result… an open, yet warm crochet jasmine vest made all in jasmine stitch. The flower pattern allows for small color details using a different tone, giving it a feminine touch. The collar gives it an “airy” look while still providing comfort. Did I mention it is 100% reversible? 😉

Lesson Learned

“Why was it in the works for so long?”, you ask me. Overall, making it wasn’t all that complicated. But it didn’t come easily. I did lose sight of the end goal a few (a lot of) times. And I started doubting that this was ever gonna be worth it. This lead of course to procrastination. Which is something that I really need to work on because… Truth is after all the doing and undoing, I do like how it turned out! A lot! A lot, a lot! So I’ll take this as a lesson and try to trust an itty bit more on my instincts, worry less and get more work done! 😉


I haven’t had the courage to write this pattern yet, but if you want it, let me know in the comments below! 🙂

    I do want to learn this stitch and I want to save it and the vest pattern to Pinterest, but I did not see a way to do it.

    I am desperate for this pattern, can’t find any patterns for jasmine stitch that are bigger than a scarf, and I too want a jumper, or cardy, or poncho. I have some beautifully soft, metallic shimmery yarn than would just be dreamy in this stitch! But i’m not confident I could create suitable shaping without help!

      Hi Jem,
      Thank you so much for your comment! I might have to bump this one up on my list. 🙂
      Just a little heads up, that there is no shaping in this vest. It is just a rectangle, with two holes for the arms. The trickiest part of this design is the collar, but other than that, nothing fancy.

      Hi Tori!
      Thank you so much for your kind comment! It makes me so happy that you like them.
      Unfortunately, I haven’t had the opportunity to write the pattern for this one. It’s been in the backburner for a while but I just haven’t gotten to it yet.

    Hello, how much meters of yarn did you use to crochet yor vest?

    • Reply Susana July 24, 2020 at 9:44 am

      Hello Nadja,
      I haven’t written this pattern yet, so I am not completely sure. I think I used 5 or 6 skeins of the yarn I mention in the post, including one in a different color for the flowers. Hope this helps. 🙂

      Hi Yara! Thank you for commenting. I will try to work on the pattern soon. 🙂
      Meanwhile, for the neck part, you have to make your rows grow in a diagonal way to get that effect. Hope this helps.
