Black top/skirt with the central blue panel – PATTERN

Once again I was crocheting with black yarn and wanted to make black motifs in this top somewhat more visible. Why not to emphasize the central panel of 4 round motifs with another colour?

The openwork pattern reminds me of the fine craftsmanship – beautifully carved intricate geometric ornaments in the Eastern architecture. For example these elaborate designs are from Marrakech:

Museum Dar Si Said    Marrakech

The panel with the “crochet carving” : )  is in front of the top, back is made in the triangle shape – it widens towards the bottom and slightly drapes around hips:

The garment is convertible – you can wear it with a black bra so it becomes lovely summer top. Or choose any matching top/sweater to wear with your knee length skirt:

Knit TOP for hot summer – detailed PATTERN for Shetland lace top

Recently I have completed another knit top with Shetland lace:

Knittop8 Knittop7

It was made in size XL as a present to my neighbour. I used zigzags and rhombuses as in my previous knit top, but changed the edge and the neckline.  With these shoulders it’s certainly easier to find a suitable bra : ).

The pattern was made earlier for the halter neck top with the same zigzag and rhombus patterns:

1  Knittop5

Knittop3  Top

This top looks great with a bikini – you will get lots of admiring glances on a beach resort! It takes not much place in your travel luggage, is very light (weighs 100 gr only), and has a perfect & practical design for the hot summer – it leaves your shoulders free so you would not suffer from the heat too much.

The halter neck top is stretchy and fits a woman with the following circumferences:

Bust 36-41 inch; 92-105 cm
Waist 29-33 inch; 75-90 cm
Hips 37-41 inch; 94-105 cm

Detailed PATTERN for this halter neck top can be downloaded here:

To make the same neckline as I did for my neighbour simply decrease 2 rhombuses for the armholes as described in the PDF and then knit straight up to the neckline. Sew shoulder seams – in each shoulder join one rhombus of the front with respective rhombus in the back.
