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!

Cancun Boxy Lace Top – Knitting Pattern

Let me introduce you to Cancun, a soft and lacy knitted top, easy to work up even for beginners!

 

It’s freely inspired on Cancun boxy lace top by Erin Kate Archer with some slight alterations to my likings.

Presenting you with it gives me the occasion to show you another side to being a good designer: being able to recognize beauty when and where we see it and being able to credit for it accordingly,

This ability is a great skill nowadays and allows a designer to be inspired by everything without the need for a war for supremacy. Also recognizing someone else did a good job in designing something allow us to bond one another and form long lasting and mutually enriching friendships.

But now to the fun stuff, you surely want to know what I did differently from the original pattern… Below you can find my version. No PDF this time, you will need to read further if you are curious…
