    I’ve been attempting, to no avail, to create a basic stitch circular jacket/bolero. this pattern is gorgeous, but for my group (semi-intermediates) it’s difficult. all of the youtube tutorials are either in another language or skip crucial stitch increase/decrease instructions. would you be willing to do a tutorial for this in the future?

    I’ve never used a pattern, but this looX like one I’d be willing to try. I get nervous coloring between the lines, but your suggestion about color choice will make it less regimented in my mind. :)))

    I would love to try and make this but would need a video as I am beginner hooker and have only made afghans so far.

    I have tried to make vests before and I always seem to get confused at the arm hole areas, I would love to have a few different patterns especially for the different seasons, and maybe with and without the option for sleeves, and ones that can be wrapped all the way around so maybe the option to make it in a larger size without compromising the shape or look of the pattern. Love all the hard work you do for the crowd Mr. Mikey!!

    Love this, but need a larger size – I cant find a nice looking vest to fit me or my sisters. Could use pattern for US sizes 1X, 2X, 3X.

    Love the look of this but it’ll never stretch to my size….. Not even if I use bigger hook! 🙁

      There are instructions on the pattern for how to make it bigger.
      I’m going to give it a go – I need mine to be at least 10″ wider than the pattern calls for 🙂

    Currently have a WIP of one …. I have to rethink it a bit, was winging it 😉 and was trying to add sleeves, but the armholes are not well placed for my frame atm…. Rippit Rippit Rippit 😀 But I am not giving up on my vision just yet! I might try this pattern with some different yarn to maybe “learn” the proper technique ~ Thanks for the post Mikey! <3

    I love the idea of circular vests! I’ve been seeing them around this summer as well and have been thinking about making one for myself.

    I think Red Heart has a similar vest free pattern. I think it is a ripple star shape. I think they look very nice. 🙂

    I have seen similar sweaters on the net before. They are beautiful. I would love to make one but I tend to get tripped up when reading the patterns. I would love to see you do a video to explain as only you can Mikey.

    I’ve seen knitted patterns for these, but they have all been way beyond my patience and ability. I would love to see this pattern as one of your challenges. Once I finish this and see how it drapes, it might be fun to figure out how to add sleeves. A sweater in this style would be beautiful.

    I love vests. Always have. Though I am on the fence with this one. Not too sure.

    I would SO love this! Colors, maybe a looser stitch for a slight airy feel for those of is us suffering from hot flashes and chills alternately. Yes, yes, yes!

    Love the looks of the vest, unsure of bottom back, may need to see better pic of it before I say yes or no. Will try and make one for myself or daughter and see how it looks in some fall colors…but do love circle/spiral vests….They are very easy to work…

    looks like it needs a revision at the bottom, it does not lay flat,
    maybe you could change up the pattern for us Mikey, I would not
    like to make this with the bumps like you can see in the photo,
    maybe a video would help also

    There are several free patterns for circular vests on ravelry. The prettiest are the ones using lots of bright colors and openwork.

    I would love to make and wear vests. I just get too hot wearing sweaters. I don’t think I would venture to make this on my own without the Mikey tutorial.♥

    I really like the Spiral vest. I wish I could find the pattern for the ones I used to make way back. Very simple with a tie right a boob level.

    I link circle vest but would prefer something more lacy for myself. More for fashion than warmth.

    This new design of vest looks fun to make. I have seen these vests with different stitches and types of yarn. Now on my to-do list. Would make a fun challenge as a Fall/Christmas gift.

    I am a huge fan of the circle or spiral vest. I found a free pattern once. It called for a size E hook but it wasn’t for my size so I got a bigger hook and made it as the pattern said and it fit me perfectly. I love my circle vest. >^..^<

    Have you seen the book “Knit, Swirl”? It’s all knitted, but you can get the same effect with Tunisian crochet. A sweater like that in regular crochet is my dream project.

    I, too, would love to see a video version! It looks like this style would hug and drape the body better than your average square or rectangle. (I am also thinking large hook, small yarn to put some “swang” into the vest.) 😉

    have seen similar patterns utilizing a circle for the back … far prefer this pattern … the open spiral is much more interesting … can see several possibilities for using color progressions … think this could be very casual … or something dressier … depending on yarn and color choices … a very good chance this is on my list of to-dos for fall … paired with jeans … perfect ….

    nice vest would like to see more. I found a round vest pattern that was called the Stevie Nicks version and was done in bright colored rainbow yarn. No matter what I did it turned out to be too long for me. I would love to see you tackle that one and find a way to make it fit us shorter people.

    Looks like it would be a very nice addition to anyone’s wardrobe. Not everyone you meet would be wearing one and I am sure people would comment on it and like it as well. It’s nice to not look like a “clone” when you go out. Unique is fun!!! 🙂

    I am currently in Mexico. The women here make all types of circular vests. I am thrilled to see this pattern. I will be making one as soon as I finish the spectrum afghan you inspired me to make.

    Love the vest and wished I cut crochet as a well as you! You received a great talent from GOD. I am in a group at church we make baby items for Little Life and lap afghans for nursing home and scraves n hats for the homeless. If you care to join us email.
