Tunic for yarn leftovers – PATTERN

What is most essential to crochet your wearables neatly?

First of all is the yarn! The thicker is the yarn the faster and thicker will be your clothing garment, the more protruding will be all seams and imperfections, the most likely you will not want to wear it outside the house. Second, whether you crochet loose or tight? I’d be very careful with loose crochet stitches – in some boho garments they look beautiful and in more classical apparel they will imply crocheter’s negligence. Third, is the blocking of your completed garment, because this final step reveals the beauty of all stitches.

I love summer crochet garments made with fingering yarn weight (4 ply) and when several rows of solid double crochet stitches emphasize the contrasting lacy geometric patterns. Such garments remain lacy enough, not too thick to make you sweaty, and do not take ages to complete.

In this project I have combined 6 different colours – LEFT OVERS remaining after finishing this off shoulder tunic, diagonal jacketmy boho tunic with tassels, this tunic, three 50-gr balls of cotton/rayon (I loved the dark blue colour even if the yarn shop had 3 balls only : )) and light blue yarn that was left after completing a very old project made for my husband’s sister 8-9 years ago. She put on some weight since then and gave her present away :).

Two colours were originally of DK-weight/8ply and I divided yarn in 2 strands to have Fingering weight/4 ply.

As you might have seen, I love this combination of blue and beige colours very much:

Designer crochet sexy top – PATTERN

I’m so glad the weather is warming up and I can finally wear my finished crochet top:

Crochet top pattern for sizes XS-S-M-L

It’s the most feminine and flattering top that I’ve made so far. Actually I never thought this colour would suit me…  But now I find it super flattering on my skin tone. It does make me look very fresh and young … in my 42 :)) Haha.

This top features different leaf-alike patterns, scalloped heart-shaped edging, flattering curved lines that make any silhouette breathtaking. I like how this garment adds some volume to my smaller bust.

By the way, Missguided also offers this beautiful cold shoulder dress in their collection:

Missguided cold shoulder crochet dress

Their website states the dress was made made of thick 100 % acrylic yarn. I’d definitely stay away from any type of acrylic for a good breathing summer garment. Acrylic can be quite soft, but deep in their soul, they’re still plastic yarns. It’s not very compy to have plastic on your skin in hot summer.

Recently a team at Plymouth University in the UK spent 12 months analyzing what happened when a number of synthetic materials were washed at different temperatures in domestic washing machines, using different combinations of detergents, to quantify the microfibres shed. They found that acrylic was responsible for releasing nearly 730,000 tiny synthetic particles per wash, five times more than polyester-cotton blend fabric, and nearly 1.5 times as many as polyester (source).
