Blair Ribbed Hem Crop Top

Welcome.

In this ‘hellish’ August, I managed to stop and put aside the wool…. to get cotton!

I really wanted to make a top that was quick, simple, and with which I could use a yarn no longer in production.

This is the “filo di Biella“.

The thickness changes as you work it and I used it double (two strands worked together) and used 4 balls in total for a size S+ (I scrupulously followed the instructions given by the designer and they were very helpful).

I must say that I got on very well. The pattern suggests Garnstudio DROPS Cotton Merino yarn, but I leave here some substitutions:

The pattern is Blair ribbed hem crop top.

Love Rug – Free Crochet Pattern

Good afternoon.

In this hot June, I offer you a beginner-friendly project that allows you to recycle (eco-friendly).

It is a crocheted rug created from old cotton T-shirts.

So first, I leave you with a video explaining how to join the various parts that are cut out of the shirt.

This is the method I have chosen. There are also other ways on the Internet. Find the method you like best.

At this point we have our skein (or several skeins) and all we have to do is start the project!

I use it when I get out of the shower, especially in summer. It helps to absorb water and not to get the floor wet. It is easy to wash and dry. In short, practical for everyday life.

It has worked in top down, starting with the main colour.

I recommend choosing two colours that create a lot of contrast so that the rhombuses stand out.

Hope – Crochet Pattern

Good morning,

this pandemic has given me time to write some patterns that usually, for various reasons, remain there waiting.

It’s time to be published!

20180629_103817

I’m starting with something summery. I hope you’re not like me who continue to work with wool, but that you’ve taken up cotton.

Otherwise, I suggest you do it!

This particular top is worked bottom-up. It has two seams that you can decide to do with a needle or crochet hook.

It’s really quick and easy.

You can adapt it by simply adding repetitions to the pattern. The stitches used are the basic ones.

You can find it on Ravelry.

Enjoy!
