I have also made a complete video tutorial for this vest which you can find here. In the video I am making it in and Adult Large but the basic concepts are the same. However, for the smaller vest sizes I did not add the double knotted fringe. If you want to double knot you would need to cut longer strands of yarn to accommodate the double knot.
I am also not adding the front button toggle and instead worked a simple chain strand to tie in the front. This would be a modification you could use for the adult sizes as well! Especially if you would like your vest to hang open a little more.

Triangle Trio Boho Vest Child Sizes free crochet pattern
Pattern written in US crochet terminology
Size J/10 (6 mm) crochet hook
(2) wooden beads
Approximate finished size:
2T: Individual triangles = 12” tall x 18” wide
4 – 6: 14” tall x 20” wide
8 – 10: 16” tall x 22” wide
12 – 14: 18” tall x 24” wide
Gauge: 12 hdc rows (worked in between the posts see special stitch section below) = 4”, 11 hdc st = 4″
RS = right side
ch = chain
hdc = half double crochet
st = stitch
sc = single crochet
sp = space
sk = skip
sl st = Slip Stitch
Notes about pattern:
- ch 2 at beginning of each row counts as stitch.
- hdc is worked in between the posts for the entire pattern.
- Stitch count will increase by a count of 4 for each row.
- Resize: 3 rows adds 2” per triangle
- If your size triangle ends on a Color B color, I would recommend either doing 1 more row of Color A for each triangle to give more contrast at the join or doing your last row in Color A instead of Color B.
The hdc is worked in between the posts. Insert your hook under all three loops rather than just the two loops as usual.
Triangle (Make 3)
Row 1: With color A (RS) ch 3, sk 2 ch (counts as 1st hdc), (2 hdc, ch 2, 3 hdc) into 3rd ch from hook. Turn (6)
Row 2: (Note: you will now be working your hdc st in between the hdc post sts from previous row here and throughout pattern.) ch 2 (counts as st here and throughout pattern), 1 hdc in between each st to ch 2 sp from previous row (corner), (2 hdc, ch 2, 2 hdc) in corner, 1 hdc in between each st to last st, 1 hdc in ch 2 from previous row. Turn (10)
Row 3 – 5: Repeat row 2 with Color A.

Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Sew triangles together – see diagram below LEAVING ARMHOLE OPEN. I used the mattress seam stitch. Place stitch markers through both sides of triangle at top and bottom corners of middle & top of side triangles.
Measure 2” (3” for sizes 8-10 & 12-14) from top of each side triangle down, place stitch marker.
Measure 8” (10” for size 8-10 & 12-14) from bottom of each side triangle up, place stitch marker.
This will create an armhole on both sides which will not be sewn. Sew triangles together between stitch markers leaving armholes open.
With color A, attach yarn to RS of the bottom corner edge.
Ch 3, (counts as 1st hdc + ch 1), working evenly along bottom edge, *sk a sp, hdc in next, ch 1* repeat between * * to end, hdc in bottom of last row of hdc. Evaluate as you go whether your hdc st are too close together or too far apart. You want your edge to be even without pulling together or ruffling. See photos below:

Attach yarn to corner bottom edge ch 3 (counts as 1st st + ch 1)
Sk a space, hdc in next sp work evenly along bottom edge
Fringe. For sizes 2T – 4/6: With color A, cut 4 lengths of yarn 10” long for each fringe. Do not double knot For sizes 8/10 – 12/14: cut yarn 12” long for each fringe, proceed to double knot.
Loop fringe through first ch 1 sp of edging, sk one ch 1 sp between each fringe. Double knot fringe by taking 4 strands of yarn from each fringe and making a knot. Trim ends.
Skip one ch 1 sp between fringe. For 2 end corners, you will take all 8 strands and double knot with 4 strands from fringe next to it.
Wrap strands from R fringe over 4 strands of L fringe, behind fingers in loop made.
Wrap end of R fringe around and down into loop, pull gently until knot made. Continue working double knots along fringe, using 4 strands from each fringe to knot together. Last corner end fringe will be worked with all 8 knotted to 4 strands of fringe next to it.

With color A, ch 71 (81, 91, 101, 111), sl st into 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Fasten off. Insert tie into top of each side triangle in ch 2 sp. Add wood bead to each end of tie. Weave in ends.
With RS facing, attach color A to bottom of arm hole, ch 1, sc evenly around arm hole, sl st to 1st st. Fasten off. Weave in ends. Repeat for 2nd arm hole.
