General tips for beginners

Finally, I would like to give some useful tips on crocheting waistcoats:

  • Use only high quality and proven yarn. It is better to give preference to softer and more pleasant to the body materials, so as not to cause irritation on the skin of the child.
  • Choose the color of the product based on what you knit it for. If this is a vest for kindergarten or walking outside, choose bright colors. For older girls of school age, neutral tones will do.
  • If you are professionally skilled in crochet, then you will have no difficulty decorating a vest with a beautiful ornament or a crocheted flower. Especially recently, jacquard patterns have become popular.
  • To prevent the finished vest from losing its color and shape, choose a hand wash. And it is better to dry the product on a flat, smooth surface.
  • You can also decorate a vest for a girl with various beads, buttons and sequins. Your fashionista will be delighted.

Now, having tied a children's vest with a shirt for a girl, you can try to create other products, for example, a blouse or a sweater. Creative success to you!
