Italian Summer Crochet Top

In this hot summer I managed to find time to present you with a really simple summer top.

It’s the Italian Summer crochet top.

Crocheted with a fresh yarn, such as cotton or linen, and without too much thought.

I used Safran by Garn Studio and 3.00 mm hook (USA 2 1/2).

These are two panels that are subsequently joined together.

A graphic pattern is included in the diagram, so I recommend it to those who are at least at an intermediate level.

The open-work weave and sizes ranging from XS to XXXL make it a really suitable pattern for everyone.

I thank the testers for their splendid work.

Grab the pattern on Ravelry, Amazon or Lovecrafts.

Let me know in the comments if you do this and what you think.

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.
