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: 

To Crop or Not To Crop Top, that is the QUESTION!

Crochet top with variegated yarn and yarn left overs – PATTERN

The beauty of variegated yarn is best revealed with quite simple crochet or knit stitches. I have knitted a couple of rows with stockinette stitch, but the result was boring : ). Endless rows of single or double crochet stitches would not be a great option either because they are known for their stiffness. My skin is rather sensitive and I cannot wear stiff clothes on my shoulders, that’s why I prefer not using more than 2 repeated rows of them in crochet tops. So, a combination of single crochet, half double crochet stitches and chains was chosen for making this contemporary looking drapey top. Besides I could include my yarn left overs of the same grey hue.
