Rugged Bohemian Waistcoat – Rewritten

Hello All!

Many years ago, all the way back in 2015, I designed a waistcoat pattern. I was going to Star Wars Secret Cinema, and had been assigned the class of Mercenary. But we bought the with so little notice that we didnt have much time for costume hunting. I had my outfit mostly under control – I already hadbrown boots, sand coloured trousers, an of white top, the requred faction scarf and a plastic bullet belt from an army costume from years earlier. But it looked like it needed something more. So I trawled through my stash and found some brown rustic looking yarn, and then it hit me – a waistcoat. I knew I needed it done within 24 hours, so I made it up as I went along, and then I attempted to write a pattern.

This pattern has had a fair amount of attention – its been shared among ravelry groups, on pinterest, etc. But evey so often, I would get a message o a comment about how people were struggling to follow the pattern. It was the very first pattern I ever wrote, and it was pretty rubbish. So I finally did something about it. I rummaged through my yarn stash, found some suitable yarn, and got cracking on rewriting the pattern.

You can find the shiny new PDF pattern on my Ravelry Store, here.

I put in lots of photos and hopefully explained everything a whole lot better. I even did the maths to make larger and smaller sizes.

Let me know what you think.

Rugged Bohemian Waistcoat Pattern

Thank for visiting! This pattern has now been rewritten to include much more detailed instructions and step by step photographs! You can find the details here.

Secret Cinema! The best experience of my life. So good I went Twice. Luckily a friend of mine is one of the actors so I got heavily reduced tickets, but I would definitely say its well worth the full ticket price!
Anyways, a friend and I made plans to go, and they were such short notice that I didn’t have time to order costume pieces, so I had to make something myself. I wanted a ragged sort of waistcoat thing, but I had less than 24 hours to make it in, so instead of searching for a pattern, I just made it up as I went along. And now I have written you a pattern. Aren’t you lucky!
