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! 😉

Shape

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/

When I reached the armholes I thought of simplifying the process – follow the oversize-trend and make drop shoulders with straight sleeves. But a closer look at any project with such construction revealed huge hanging pieces at armholes. Do I want to make another beautiful top or finish it as soon as possible, and even use more yarn than it’s needed at armholes? So again, I made my normal set-in sleeves :). Maybe there are women who look beautiful in oversize clothes – it’s easy to crochet any T-shape, but garments that fit well are still more appealing to me.

Similar crochet tunic features beautiful cold shoulder cut outs allowing you to be elegant and sexy without being overexposed. This is one of my favorite styles, partly because it suits not only young girls but classy women who like to wear feminine and trendy crochet garments. And partly because this tunic is so versatile and flattering! Want to look instantly cool? Pair it with fitted jeans and basic tops to show off your tanned shoulders. For bohemian appeal team it with long skirts and fancy earrings.

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.

crochet sweater PATTERN for sizes XS-4XL

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:
