Black skirt/top Obsidian – PATTERN

One of my close friends has been expecting a baby and when she asked for a nice summer crochet top I gave her my top/skirt with the central blue panel as a present.

I liked it, so I decided to repeat the same pattern in one colour – black.

Black top/skirt with the central blue panel – PATTERN

Once again I was crocheting with black yarn and wanted to make black motifs in this top somewhat more visible. Why not to emphasize the central panel of 4 round motifs with another colour?

The openwork pattern reminds me of the fine craftsmanship – beautifully carved intricate geometric ornaments in the Eastern architecture. For example these elaborate designs are from Marrakech:

The panel with the “crochet carving” : )  is in front of the top, back is made in the triangle shape – it widens towards the bottom and slightly drapes around hips:

The garment is convertible – you can wear it with a black bra so it becomes lovely summer top. Or choose any matching top/sweater to wear with your knee length skirt:

Geometry in crochet – Top with triangle and diagonals – PATTERN

This top was made with a simple combination of geometric figures: triangle and diagonals and combined two colours: earthy brown color and turquoise sky colour:

Triangle pattern creates an optical illusion that the top is fitting tightly around the waist (the top is loose fitting). The garment widens towards the bottom and slightly drapes around hips.

Crochet top PATTERN – Odd Molly design

It’s been a long story about this crochet top designed by Swedish company Odd Molly. I came across these photos several years ago and saved them to my laptop. The initial price in http://www.bernardboutique.com/ was 228 Euro, currently the top is sold out. It was interesting to crack the round motif in front and draw HQ charts. And finally, after I had completed that central motif, why not to crochet the whole garment? : ))

It is peculiar that Odd Molly has officially published two versions of the top. The first one had more double crochet stitches in the main pattern and 19 sectors in the centre of the motif (I have numbered them in the 3rd photo). Shell motifs of the main pattern have 10 dc stitches (in US crochet terminology).

The second version was probably done by another crocheter who did 21 sectors in the centre of the motif (I have numbered them in the 4th photo) and fewer double crochet stitches in the main pattern. Actually in the below photos you can see that central motif looks not as round and hangs more towards the bottom (maybe because of two additional sectors?). Shell motifs of the main pattern have 8 dc stitches.

Both versions have 16 sectors in the final row of the central motif.

There are some other differences, but since I liked the first version more, I reconstructured it. My project can be seen on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/CONCEPTcreative

And the pattern for the first version of the top is available on Etsy, Ravelry, Craftsy and in my store:
