So, like I said previously, I’m becoming a little addicted to making Crochet tops. Particularly, super easy, quick to make ones.
I don’t claim to be any sort of designer, but I really appreciate a pattern that allows me to make something simple, quickly (I get disheartened if it takes too long) and enables me to say “thanks, I made it myself” if complimented on it.
For this top I used Corner to Corner crochet. The yarn is 4ply Excelana from John Arbon Textiles. I didn’t realise the mill was based so close to where I live (about 15 minutes away) and when they had an open day a few months ago I bagged myself a few bargains.
As with the Crochet Mesh Top, this top is simply made of two rectangles stitched together at the shoulders and sides to make a top. I didn’t stich the side seams all the way to the bottom of the top just to add a little extra detail.
Rather than trying to crochet in shaping detail around the neckline, I shaped the top during blocking and I think it turned out ok.
The overall pattern definitely needs a bit of work, but I’m really pleased with how this turned out and I’ll definitely be making more.
