 Why Freelancer Top? 🙂

Because all patterns are created in my free time 😉. This is the most flexible occupation for a self-taught crocheter where one can pick a beautiful yarn, guess what it wants to be, freelance a skill one already has, and then wear whatever one wants!

Now I feel like creating and wearing simple and sporty garments that flatter my rectangular body type, can be worn at any leisure occasion, and make me look younger than my 44 😉. I’ll surely let you know when my fingers are itchy to make something more elaborated 😉. Though If YOU want to crochet something more challenging right now – please browse http://conceptcreative.store. Have fun in any case! 😉

I opted for a cake yarn for the first time. Its color changes added more visual interest to the simple stitches. The drapey yarn turned some excessive width into length while the scalloped fringed edge made this top look quite dynamic and proportional. It was designed to give the wearer an energetic boost and positive attitude of a Freelancer! 😉 Feel young and free, capture the mood of the moment and be in control of your own life!

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.

Origami knit sweater

Paper folding technique where several sheets are arranged into interesting shapes is a very entertaining game for people of all ages. But do you know that with similar technique, you can create a sweater or even a sweater dress that requires minimum of shaping and uses creative and practical heuristic approach to knit a garment?

The construction of this sweater is very simple: front, back and sleeves are worked back and forth in long straight 4 panels till you get accustomed to constantly repeated rows – browse photos to see how front, back and sleeves are arranged around neckline. Then the decrease is made at one side of each panel (in most rows you will decrease 1 stitch only). Finally everything is folded (as in origami) and sewn together. And best of all – all 4 panels are worked the same way! Thus, every new panel will be knitted faster because you already have relevant past experience.

If you already made garments top-down, bottom-up and look for something unusual you might admire this idea.

Crochet crop top PATTERN – LONGER version

Upon request of my customer I have included additional layout for a longer top and it was already tested: black top.  RR also allowed to include photo of her finished top into the description.

You will receive:

► 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);

► 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’’. In this case you will need to use another yarn and/or hook (for example, for bust 101 cm/40’’ the width of each round motif will be just 1 cm (0.4”) larger than in the original top shown in photos).
