I don’t have any finished projects to share right now (although I’m working on several Valentine’s Day ones), so I went through my old photos to see what kind of crochet bits and pieces I can show today.
Since I haven’t posted about crochet clothes yet, I thought a little parade of crochet tops could be inspiring.
I start with this little pink tank-top. My mom crocheted it for me several years ago. She used some leftover pink thread in two slightly different shades. She was clever to alternate the two shades in stripes, creating an interesting effect. The pattern itself is extremely simple - just rows after rows of double crochets.
This white top was also made by my mom. It’s lacy and romantic. Just the way I like it! She used a pattern from some Russian crochet magazine.
Yet another top crocheted by mom. Again, the pattern was from a Russian crochet magazine. For the previous two tops, she used thread, but for this one she used yarn. The top is a bit too warm for summer, but I like wearing it in winter on top of a black turtleneck.
Finally, a top that I made myself! The upper part of the top is knitted, but the bottom part is crocheted. I intended to make it longer, but I ran out of yarn and couldn’t buy the same brand anywhere. So it is the way it is.
Do you crochet clothes? Do you own any handmade crochet pieces? Crochet hats and scarves are always popular, but what about tops, sweaters, skirts, and other garments?
