AMBIANCE ORIGAMI: Sweater Crochet Pattern – published!

I don’t want to challenge conventions of beauty and create something ill-fitting that swamps the body and uses enormous amount of yarn. So, even if every catwalk seems to show oversize and awkward looking chunky knits I prefer wearing more proportional and comfortable clothes. Especially if they are oversized :).

And I’m very happy that regardless of this trend for strange-looking fashion, my oversize top became popular on http://www.lovecrochet.com  – I see it regularly among their hottest tops. Yea, I finally published several patterns there :).

Or maybe it’s because it’s dressier and sharper than a conventional tee and people love timeless appeal? 🙂

I suggest to crochet it in white because

  1. White tops are hot weather appropriate, they make any outfit look crisp, modern and fresh.
  2. They are great if you are tired of darker winter garments and want to lighten up.
  3. White tops look perfect with lots of other colors, they are wardrobe essential for any style.

Diagonal jacket with triangle pattern in the back

The idea of crocheting the diagonals in the back of this jacket has been tumbling around in my head for a while. I’ve been playing with different angles to have no side seams but the back just wasn’t coming out right when being crocheted on the bias. The waist had to be shaped to fit properly otherwise I will look like a kartoffelsack (sack of potatoes : )). There are some patterns with hanging back, but such a stuff can be bought at any cheap shop and worn at home (why bother to spend time crocheting it or use expensive yarn?). I surely prefer to wear more elegant crochet jackets outside : ).

Recently I saw this dress with triangle patterns by Diane von Furstenberg with shaped waist but was kind of disappointed because the centre in the back looked not very neat – some parts looked as though they were sewn together:

Triangle in the back

This is what I made and then undone everything : )

Based on that trial version I’ve made a cardigan with diagonal front (crocheted on the bias) and straight back (worked back and forth):

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.

Yarn Saver Tip: Before you decide to crochet any sweater made with thick yarn – please pay attention to sleeves and seams in photos. Whether the wearer hides all excessive width under her arms or garments have not flattering bumps at armholes? Many free crochet sweaters made with thick yarn, double crochet stitches (without chains in between) have T-shapes, because such sleeves do not require any shaping. T-shaped lacy kimonos made with thin thread do look fine because any excessive width drapes beautifully along the sides. All excessive thick double crochet stitches not only consume more yarn, but will be gathered under your arms (especially if you intend to wear sweaters under winter coats) because people are not built in T-shapes.
