The idea of crocheting the diagonals in the back of this jacket has been tumbling around in my head for a while. I’ve been playing with different angles to have no side seams but the back just wasn’t coming out right when being crocheted on the bias. The waist had to be shaped to fit properly otherwise I will look like a kartoffelsack (sack of potatoes : )). There are some patterns with hanging back, but such a stuff can be bought at any cheap shop and worn at home (why bother to spend time crocheting it or use expensive yarn?). I surely prefer to wear more elegant crochet jackets outside : ).
Recently I saw this dress with triangle patterns by Diane von Furstenberg with shaped waist but was kind of disappointed because the centre in the back looked not very neat – some parts looked as though they were sewn together:
This is what I made and then undone everything : )
Based on that trial version I’ve made a cardigan with diagonal front (crocheted on the bias) and straight back (worked back and forth):
Pattern with diagonal front parts is available on Etsy, Ravelry and published in my shop:
While searching through my stash I came across a nice turquoise 100 % wool yarn without a label. I forgot where it came from – maybe I took last skein from a local shop many years ago or someone else gave it to me because they do not want it anymore. I love this colour because it gives a nice bluish shade to my grey eyes.
Several years ago I’ve utilized lots of wool skeins and several old pullovers in this big carpet:
It has about 70 different colours, but my turquoise wool has a pretty intensive colour and it can not be paired with anything. Some day it had to be used before moths realized it was waiting for them : ). So, to prevent it I’ve made this Crochet wrap Diagonal Seashells – another project that helps to finish one yarn-skein:
