Trendy hoodie PATTERN with round motifs – 2018 it was published, see what to make next

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.

â–ş detailed tutorial in ENGLISH with charted and written explanations for crocheting every row (in case you are not used to work with the crochet charts);

â–ş colourful diagrams supporting this pattern;

►  photo-tutorial for working such round motifs without cutting off the yarn and making the loop of square motifs in each sleeve without hiding lots of ends.

This crochet pattern is given for bust circumference 91 cm/36”. I have included suggestions on how big should be your gauge if you wish to crochet this crop top for bust circumference 84-89 cm/33’’-35” and 96-101 cm/38-40’’.

Why this detailed crochet tutorial is not shared in blog as other FREE patterns?

There are many Etsy shops who search for free patterns on the internet and then resell them as their own. Probably every second crochet pattern offered on Etsy was taken from a magazine (vintage or new one) or from free blogs with charts. Some people create/repost more or less similar charts to attract more visitors to their blogs and all those free charts/free patterns appear one day on Etsy. I can name many of such Etsy shops and provide links to the original free patterns :).

I do not wish to support these shops – drawing HQ charts for this dress took a while as well as describing all stitches. Yes, it is FREE addition to all those crocheters who already purchased pattern for crop top with the same round and square motifs.

Crochet crop top PATTERN – by Free People

What’s more perfect for summer crochet outfit than a sexy crop top, allowing your skin to breathe? This irresistible design with vintage-inspired flared sleeves is a crochet dream come true. Style yours with high-waisted trousers to temper the shorter silhouette or with a maxi skirt for a glamorous, head-turning bohemian look.

I started making this pattern when it appeared on Free People website. However, I think it is better to publish it for those who missed purchasing it and would like to crochet the one of their own.

Love the look of this top but hate breaking the yarn after completing each motif? Me too! For this top additional photo-tutorial is included explaining how to crochet such round motifs without cutting off the yarn and how you can finish the loop of square motifs in each sleeve without hiding lots of ends. After grasping this NO-YARN-BREAKING concept you will be able to crochet all motif-garments without doing any harm to yarn skeins (and saving your time : ))

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

Missguided cold shoulder crochet dress

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).

Combining crochet patterns with fabric – two inspiring projects

1. Crochet edging onto old fabric shirt:

Recently I’ve noticed that collar and cuffs in my MEXX shirt lost their original black colour and became somewhat grayish. Front, back and sleeves were made of another fabric (machine knitted) and remained black. So, I’ve decided to replace collar, plackets and cuffs with crocheted ones.

First of all, carefully cut them off:

cut off

Then I’ve cut a V-neck because it would be simpler to crochet a border all around. I’m not that good in sewing,  therefore asked a professional tailor to finish all raw edges with a thread serger.

Now choose a nice edge pattern. These shells from an old crochet magazine should look lovely in my shirt:

I had one ball of thin black rayon left from another project. Rayon is good for decorations because it is colourfast.

As far as I know rayon is no longer made in the USA – in 2004, the last of the U.S. rayon production facilities were closed due to EPA regulations.  Current rayon producing countries include China, India, and some European countries. You can use polyester which is also colourfast.  

Then I have worked chains until their length has reached the length of my plackets and bottom (all around), worked one row of single crochet stitches and sewed this foundation row to my shirt. For plackets I crocheted 4 rows of this chart over the row of single crochet (additional stitches should be added at the corners so that they remain flat). After finishing I’ve sewn on 4 buttons and made buttonholes on the opposite side.

For cuffs I had to improvise a little so my cuffs become 12 cm/4.7” long. I’ve made the same foundation row, worked 4 rows of the chart and then repeated 3rd and 4th rows in the checkerboard order until the desired length.

This is my new jacket (clickable photos):

It’s is a simple but gorgeous project for using up some yarn leftovers and brighten up your wardrobe. You don’t have to be a fashion designer to combine the two crafts but surely you will create a unique OOAK clothing in a snap.

2. Crochet top with fabric skirt:

I have seen many different projects lately for combining crochet and fabric. Since I had a few balls of pistachio colour that would not be enough for some serious project (I do not crochet scarfs, hats or doilies – I get bored with easy projects), I’ve decided to make top like in the famous crochet Victoria’s Secret dress and ask a professional tailor to sew the bottom.

This famous crochet dress by Victoria’s Secret is already sold out, but if you like to crochet, it’s not a problem to make your OWN creation! : ). A form fitting bodice teamed with a plunging V-neck make this irresistibly feminine silhouette. His head will spin as you walk by!  Here is the result (clickable photos):
