AMBIANCE ORIGAMI: Sweater Crochet Pattern – published!

I don’t want to challenge conventions of beauty and create something ill-fitting that swamps the body and uses enormous amount of yarn. So, even if every catwalk seems to show oversize and awkward looking chunky knits I prefer wearing more proportional and comfortable clothes. Especially if they are oversized :).

And I’m very happy that regardless of this trend for strange-looking fashion, my oversize top became popular on Etsy  – I see it regularly among their hottest tops. Or maybe it’s because it’s dressier and sharper than a conventional tee and people love timeless appeal? 🙂

I suggest to crochet it in white because

  1. White tops are hot weather appropriate, they make any outfit look crisp, modern and fresh.
  2. They are great if you are tired of darker winter garments and want to lighten up.
  3. White tops look perfect with lots of other colors, they are wardrobe essential for any style.

This crochet sweater requires minimum of shaping because front, back and sleeves are worked as the same 4 parts and then sewn together. If you already made garments top-down, bottom-up and look for something unusual you might admire this creative idea.

Yarn: Fingering-weight / 4 ply / 310-370 m in 100 gr / 340-400 yards in 3.5 oz, for example King Cole Bamboo Cotton 4 ply.

UNQUESTIONABLE – Crochet Dress Pattern

This crochet dress pattern is perfect for those who look for something easy, seamless, and something that can be adjusted to your own figure for the best fit. The upper part is my crop top (I named it To Crop or Not To Crop Top – Question?) that I could not stop crocheting until it ended at my ankles :).

The skirt falls from the waist, wrapping around the hips and widening to create a beautiful flow and drape. The neckline is modest, scooped with a feminine crochet design around the edge. One button at the back allows for a secure fit around your shoulders.
