Between Memorial Day and the 4th of July, it’s time to whip up a patriotic crochet vest with fringe, don’t you think?

This Patriotic Crochet Vest Pattern for Teens or Adults is PERFECT!

Patriotic Crochet Vest with Fringe Pattern

How chic is this patriotic vest?! Since all of our American holidays occur during the summer, we want this vest to be as open and airy as possible. We can’t be suffocating while watching the fireworks, now can we?! 😉 Wear a tank top underneath in red, white or blue and you are ready to celebrate America, friends.  ♥

Patriotic Crochet Vest for Adults Crochet Pattern

I almost like it better without the stars, but if you prefer them you’ll want to use this tutorial for How to Make a Crochet Star so that you can then add them to the front.

Patriotic Crocheted Vest with Stars Crochet Pattern

I decided to use filet crochet for this patriotic crochet vest pattern.  All this means is that we are creating a crocheted “mesh” using the double crochet stitch and chain spaces.  All double crochets will line up. We’ll leave the arm holes open, then add the fringe and the optional crocheted stars! Easy peasy! 

Get the pattern on Ravelry here.

Note that this pattern is for teens or adults. I wear a size L/XL in shirts and this pattern is intended to be a one-size-fits-most (with notes to adjust sizing). It is not meant to close in front, but to be a fun addition to your patriotic wardrobe.  This pattern comes as a 2-in-1.  In this pattern there are instructions for creating a vertical stripe vest and a horizontal stripe vest.  The pattern carries instructions on how to make both versions larger if you want more of a flowy vest.

Find this pattern on my Ravelry page.  If you need any help learning to read a written crochet pattern, you can always shoot me an email or shout for help in the Heart Hook Home Crochet Community on Facebook! I hope you love this patriotic crochet vest as much as I do.  I’m thinking this could be made in a multitude of colors to wear year-round.

  1. Hi Ashley, thank you for this pattern. I just watched your video & appreciate your time and easy instruction!! My questions: - how wide is the back panel - how wide are each of the front panels? I am very petite and want to be sure it fits properly. Thank you again, I look forward to trying this! Carol

    1. Hi Rose! I am sorry, but the patriotic vest is not a free pattern. I do have the Easy Breezy Vest as a free pattern, and it is similar to the patriotic. It can be found here: https://hearthookhome.com/easy-breezy-lightweight-summer-vest-crochet-pattern/

  6. Ashlea, I'm struggling with Row 2 on the vertical pattern. After repeating the pattern 15 times which gave me 15 blocks then to dc in top of next dc, is where I'm getting hung up. I have a 3" of the previous row's chain left before coming to a dc, which would give me a gap here.
    1. Hi! It comes as an instant download via Ravelry and via email. If you don't get it, I can look into if you you!
