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.

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.
