Designer crochet sexy top – PATTERN

I’m so glad the weather is warming up and I can finally wear my finished crochet top:

Crochet top pattern for sizes XS-S-M-L

It’s the most feminine and flattering top that I’ve made so far. Actually I never thought this colour would suit me…  But now I find it super flattering on my skin tone. It does make me look very fresh and young … in my 42 :)) Haha.

This top features different leaf-alike patterns, scalloped heart-shaped edging, flattering curved lines that make any silhouette breathtaking. I like how this garment adds some volume to my smaller bust.

Cold shoulder tunic PATTERN – crochet trends

This gorgeous 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.

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).

Crochet filet top PATTERN

I have published this little filet pattern in my store http://conceptcreative.store/shop/roses-top-crochet-pattern-crochet-tutorial-in-english/  The top is perfect for layering – pair it with tight-fitting tank tops or sweaters, jeans or skirts. It might be a good idea for some of your left overs. For top in the photo I have used just 130 gram/4.6 oz of 4 ply (UK, AU), Fingering (US), 400 m/100 gr, 440 yards/3.5 oz cotton. But it can be made with thin wool and worn in winter.

The roses are created by filling in a basic mesh pattern with double crochet stitches (in American crochet terms). Filet garments are created with only two stitches: the chain and double crochet. This pattern is easy to follow if you know the filet technique. There are no lengthy instructions like /1 dc, 2 ch, skip 2 ch/ because the filet technique is gridlike and therefore it is not about reading – it’s about crocheting. Grid is the most important thing here.

This pattern includes filet grid for size S, instructions for calculating the amount of stitches if you crochet for bigger sizes, tutorial in English of how to work filet patterns, make necessary decreases for the armholes. Row-by-row description for edge pattern is included.

The pattern is also available on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/166001879/crochet-top-pattern-fillet

My friend received such a blue tunic with long sleeves for her birthday (I crocheted a present for her) – it is one of her favorite now :)). Plus I made a skirt with the same filet roses (with a thicker yarn) for her teenage daughter:

You can use these filet roses in other clothes and accessories or create cozy decorative things for your home (crochet pillow covers, lacy curtains etc).

Enjoy!

This project is not for crocheters who look for something quick and easy – the pattern is made for those experienced crocheters who love to create rare masterpieces. The tunic consists of many parts joined together and therefore requires some patience in completing all steps of the tutorial.

Knit summer TOP with free chart – scroll down the page

Recently I received an unexpected present – one skein of 100 % silk yarn. It had 420 yards (384 meters) per 120 meters. It was quite expensive and the yellow hue was very rare to find in other yarn shops. Either I had to combine my silk with another fiber and colour (burgundy looked very nice with it and my favorite bronze yarn was a nice supplement to it) or use it for a small project. For crocheting even such a small top I would need at least 520 meters of 4 ply yarn (130 gram totally). So I decided to knit a small top. I could wear it either over my burgundy dress or with lilac jeans.

Here are some photos of my completed project (all clickable):

https://conceptcreativeblog.wordpress.com/2016/06/19/knit-summer-top-with-free-chart/

Knit yellow top

Recommended yarn: silk/rayon/bamboo/soya/tencell

Yarn weight: sport / 5 ply / 320 m in 100 gr / 350 yards in 3.5 oz

Total yarn usage for size medium: 420 yards (384 meters)

Needle size: 3 mm

Abbreviations:

Skirt chart abbrev.

All other stitches (empty squares) you work in garter stitch. This way you will have reversible, ridged fabric.

At first knit edge pattern that will be placed over your waist. For any size cast on 13 with a piece of scrap yarn, then attach main yarn and follow this chart starting from row 1.

Gauge: the width of 13 stitches = 5 cm/2”.

Knit summer TOP with free chart

Knit in both wrong and right sides and make y.o. in rows 1-16 and in row 18 (in row 17 knit every stitch). Repeat rows 1-18 until the length of the panel reaches your bust circumference without any ease. Though this panel will be placed at your waist level you need to be able to pull it over your bust.

For size medium I have worked 10 motifs of the edge panel, but you might need to repeat more motifs depending on your gauge.

Then sew first row with last one to make a loop: place both ends of the panel flat, with sewing needle and main yarn join every stitch made in 1st row with respective stitch in last row, make sure all stitches are connected and then remove scrap yarn.

Work over one side of this loop – place 18 knit stitches  over each edge pattern (2 stitches in every row). In my size I had 180 stitches over 10 motifs. Knit upwards in rounds following the below chart. Start from 1st row, increase 2 y.o. in each motif in 1st and 2nd so that you have 24 stitches in 3rd row in each motif. Then work straight in rounds.

For downloading this chart in high quality in PDF format click on this link: Yellow lace top

Since edge pattern was worked back and forth with knit stitches only you can choose two ways of working main pattern:

  1. Either work knit stitches only, but after completing one row on the right side turn to knit in the opposite direction on the wrong side (fix first and last stitches to prevent a hole).
  2. Work right side only (in rounds or spirals) but after completing row with knit stitches work next row with purl stitches. I used the 2nd variant.

Eight rows prior to the final row in this chart skip for the armholes – place your work on a surface, mark the sides. In my size I have skipped one “solid” section of 9 knit sts. Then work front and back separately, decreasing 5 stitches in each row.

After completing last row of this chart work row of single crochet stitches along the armholes, slip stitches in front and back to prevent stretching of your top. Make straps – in my top I have chained for the necessary length and worked single crochet stitch into each chain. And then my yarn ended : )). But you might have more yarn and create wider straps.

 

Enjoy knitting!
