Hooded Sweater – PATTERN

Trendy and fresh, stylish and comfortable – this transparent top will allow your skin to breath. This type of crochet clothing is suitable for summer weekends and getaway resorts (unless you think crochet garments made with thick cotton are more enjoyable during the hot weather :)). This pattern is given in two variants – classical tunic with round neckline and hooded tunic shown in photos.

Cold shoulder tunic PATTERN – crochet trends

This gorgeous 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.

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

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).

This project is not for crocheters who look for something quick and easy – the pattern is made for those experienced crocheters who love to create rare masterpieces. The tunic consists of many parts joined together and therefore requires some patience in completing all steps of the tutorial.

Optionally you can decorate your tunic as shown in the photos:

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

Crochet tunic PATTERN – crochet trends

Recently one of my clients asked to create detailed step-by-step pattern for this tunic:

Beautiful creation and I’m sure you’ve seen several pages with free charts related to it. Well, you can ask, why bother if they are everywhere? : ). Let’s have a look.

First of all, when you try to follow available charts you’ll see that you need to chain 2 in the final row between petals. Chaining 3 as in those charts will make your motif rather curvy. Indeed original HQ photos show 2 chains between petals. Secondly, in charts for decreasing stitches in lace panels (you’ll see such panels at waist level between level of motifs) you can see that the angle of decrease is different than in the original. HQ photos of the original tunic show fewer rows in the panels than in free charts.

Sure an experienced crocheter would complete the tunic with available photos (and even without charts : )). What if you wish to crochet it with clear instructions for every row, reach diagrams and have complete layout of motifs in front of you?

Since I was thinking of a present for my friend this was a nice opportunity to make my permanent customer and my friend happy : ). I still have to crochet second sleeve, hide all ends in the tunic before I make photos and publish them on Ravelry. But the pattern is completed!

This tunic crochet pattern is provided for sizes US (4-8), UK (8-12), Europe (36-40) with bust 84-92 cm (33-36’’) and US (10-12), UK (14-16), Europe (42-44) with bust 94-100 cm (37-39.5’’).
