PROPORTIONS: Dress or Top

Our intrinsic sense of what we consider beautiful often comes from symmetry and proportion. We often notice that some crochet garments make us look great and feel young, while others make our figures heavier. No design or color can make us look perfect if the proportions are wrong.

P.SOne crocheter mentioned that I should wear undergarments – actually I do have it in every photo :).

Design elements:

In this dress I tried to change the perception of my rectangular man-alike figure – combined feminine details like shell motifs that provided softer touch to my broad shoulders with triangles that optically created the proportional hourglass figure. The horizontal lines added more interest to the whole A-line garment, while the fringe-trimmed bottom created a moves-with-you modern silhouette.

This crochet pattern is provided for sizes:

XS with bust circumference 78-84 cm (31-33’’), hips up to 90 cm (35.5’’);
S with bust circumference 85-91 cm (33.5-36’’), hips up to 98 cm (38.5’’);
M with bust circumference 92-98 cm (36.5-38.5’’), hips up to 106 cm (42’’);
L with bust circumference 99-106 cm (39-41.5’’), hips up to 110 cm (43.5’’);
XL with bust circumference 107-114 cm (42-45’’), hips up to 120 cm (47’’);
2XL with bust circumference 115-122 cm (45.5-48’’), hips up to 128 cm (50.5’’).

our INSTAGRAM

The length of the tunic is 60 cm = 23.6’’ for the size XS and 79 cm = 31’’for the size 2XL (the bigger is your size, the more rows are worked before the triangles meet). Dress is crocheted up to the length 96 cm = 38’’ (as the sample shown) or up to desired length.

Gauge: 19 dc x 8 rows = 10 x 10 cm (4’’ x 4’’).

Yarn: 200-250 m in 100 gr / 219-273 yards in 3.5 oz / producers label such a yarn as 8-10 ply (UK, AU), DK or Worsted weight (USA), 3-4, or Light-Medium (by yarnstandards.com), therefore please use yarn that gives the same width of the stitches (gauge)

SUMMER MYSTERY CAL: Design Your Garment

June 1st, 2019, the first day of summer … 

While crocheting this garment I thought, Wait… It’s so boring to crochet alone and write all these dc, sc, ch for the thousand time, so why not to invite other crocheters? 😀 It will be so encouraging to try something new, and we will be more creative together! Besides, nobody will ask you to buy specific yarn – take the cotton or linen from your stash and start crocheting instantly. I’m sure that you will come up with a better garment than the one I have in mind. The masterpiece that you will be really proud of! 😉

Something summery: seamless and sleeveless, worked from the top down, maybe with fringe continue reading:  https://conceptcreative.club/2019/06/01/summer-mystery-cal-design-your-garment/ 

RHYTHMIC: Crochet Top Pattern

Crochet motifs that I have posted several months ago will give you endless possibilities!

Yeah! 😉

For example, you can crochet such a feminine V-neck top with asymmetric hem and get ready for your next vacation. Layer this ornate piece over swimwear, pair it with shirts or jeans for an effortless bohemian look.

I suggest to crochet it in white or beige cotton or linen because:

  1. Cotton and linen yarns are perfect for hot weather (you won’t feel comfortable in 100 % wool or acrylic tops in summer, though I’ve already seen several wool crop tops made by beginners 😲 😱 😰 )
  2. White and beige make any outfit look crisp, modern and fresh, they look perfect with lots of other colors.
  3. White and beige drapey tops have timeless appeal, they’re a wardrobe essential for any style. They are just stunning if you want to catch attention! 🙂

 Why Freelancer Top? 🙂

Because all patterns are created in my free time 😉. This is the most flexible occupation for a self-taught crocheter where one can pick a beautiful yarn, guess what it wants to be, freelance a skill one already has, and then wear whatever one wants!

Now I feel like creating and wearing simple and sporty garments that flatter my rectangular body type, can be worn at any leisure occasion, and make me look younger than my 44 😉. I’ll surely let you know when my fingers are itchy to make something more elaborated 😉. Though If YOU want to crochet something more challenging right now – please browse http://conceptcreative.store. Have fun in any case! 😉

I opted for a cake yarn for the first time. Its color changes added more visual interest to the simple stitches. The drapey yarn turned some excessive width into length while the scalloped fringed edge made this top look quite dynamic and proportional. It was designed to give the wearer an energetic boost and positive attitude of a Freelancer! 😉 Feel young and free, capture the mood of the moment and be in control of your own life!

Oversized Poncho-Top :)

I usually do not wear boxy or oversized garments – they don’t look flattering on my broad and straight shoulders and rectangular body type, so just a few of things like wrong length or excessive width hanging under my armholes turn me into a perfect square :). I like crochet sweaters nicely fitted through the shoulders (to slide easily under a jacket) and not too snug or stiff on the body. So I usually shape waist or accent bust and add set-in-sleeves in most of my crochet items (though adjusting sleeves to many sizes is the hardest part, that is why patterns for boxy voluminous garments are less expensive and easier to make).

This project was made for my friend and the top fits her height and width well (sorry, I don’t ask my friends to model my presents if I intend to offer them as patterns : )) – friendship should remain friendship and not a modeling business : ).

I think the scalloped edge made  this voluminous poncho-top more dynamic and proportional, so probably it can flatter other types of body. Fringe optically increased the length, the drapey yarn prevented it from looking like I was absolutely swimming in it :).
