Many crocheters asked about creating a crochet version of my Origami knit sweater. So, after several trials and errors I can tell you – it’s almost ready! 😀
If you already made garments top-down, bottom-up and look for something unusual you might admire this idea.

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.
Detailed crochet pattern is available here:
You will receive:
► detailed instructions in ENGLISH for every row; charts are included so that you can adjust this top for bigger sizes by working more motifs;
► written explanation of all rows of the diagrams is included (in case you are not used to work with the crochet charts); keep the original margins of the file.
This crochet top pattern is provided for sizes:
S with bust circumference 85-90 cm (33.5-35.5’’);
M with bust circumference 92-97 cm (36-38’’);
L with bust circumference 99-104 cm (39-41’’).
The item is worked top down and you will be able to regulate the length as you go, making a top, tunic or even a dress.
