Sew The Panels:

To put together your crochet vest, you’ll need to sew the front and back panels. This is a crochet vest pattern that is very flatering and easy to sew. First, lay the back panel with its wrong side facing you. Then, place the front panel on top with its right side facing you. Sew the shoulders and sides using a basic sewing stitch. You can see the stitch I use in the video tutorial. Once you’re done sewing, we can move on to the next step of crocheting the vest.
