Crochet top with variegated yarn and yarn left overs – PATTERN

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.

Looking for TESTERS: crochet tunic with Fingering-weight/4 ply yarn, sizes XS-4XL

In this project I have combined 6 different colours – left overs remaining after finishing this off shoulder tunic, diagonal jacketmy boho tunic with tassels, this tunicthree 50-gr balls of cotton/rayon (I loved the dark blue colour even if the shop had 3 balls only : )) and light blue yarn that was left after completing a very old project made for my husband’s sister 8-9 years ago. She put on some weight since then and gave her present away :).

For other sizes I’d love to find testers to check my calculations. I have created this FB group Conceptcreative TESTING group

Off Shoulder Dress – PATTERN

This crochet dress comes in the season’s favourite off-the-shoulder style combining sexy upper part with the flattering A-line silhouette that gives this dress a balanced elegance. And if you need to change the look in seconds – move the upper part over shoulders.

Off shoulder crochet dress PATTERN for sizes XS-3XL Off shoulder crochet dress PATTERN for sizes XS-3XL

The project is suitable for beginners thanks to a simple repeat of shell motifs used throughout. Apart from that there will be no increasing – the dress gets its beautiful shape by changing three hook sizes as you work. If you do not fancy making thick crochet garments for beginners this might be a fun dress to make and wear.

Crochet tunic with shell PATTERN

I love this intricate shell pattern – it beautifully emphasizes the breast area and does not really require any special slip underneath. This design looks good on slim figures because the belly remains transparent.  If you aim for a feminine exquisite look this tunic will be a good choice.
