Pink crocheted tank top

Long time no see, but I have news for you:)

Tonight I finished this beauty:

roz00

pink crocheted top

tank top

rozspate

back top

model

diagram top

I used a diagram found on Pinterest, but I modified first rounds.

I started with 90 chains and a 5(H/8) mm hook for size M/L. For smaller/bigger size change the hook and/or change the number of beginning chains (80 for S/M, 120 for XXL and so on).

Work in circle:

Round 1: 1 dc crochet in each chain around, close ring.

Round 2:  ch 3, *cross stitch, ch 1 (to increase)* in each st, and repeat, close circle.

Round 3: ch 3 (counts as a dc), 1 dc in each st around.

Split your work in 4 equal parts.

For the front:

Chain 4, sc in 3rd st, repeat 9 times.

Row 1: ch 3 (doesn’t count as dc), 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc around first ch 4, ch 3, 11 dc around 3rd ch 4 from previous row, ch 3, 2 dc, ch2, 2dc around 5th ch 4, ch 3, 11 dc around 7th ch4, ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc around 9th ch4.

Row 2: ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 2dc in first ch 2 from previous round, *ch 3, 1 dc, ch 1 in each next 11 dc, ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in next ch 2*, repeat * * one more time.

And now you can follow the diagram.

round bolero for summer

il_570xn-992972425_2zmt

As you can see I have a new friend modelling:))

For this one I used a 6.5 mm hook (K/10 1/2) and cotton, Catania works great I think.

For the middle: I used a doily diagrambolero center doily

You leave 2 holes for arms when you reach the distance between shoulders + 1 inch (2-4 cm) – I used 39 chains for S/M size (x2), then 2 rounds V stitch and an pineapple motif edging: (you can pick up any edging, I used the last one)

found on pinterest, obvious. Anyway, it’s a round bolero, or doily bolero, and it’s pretty!

Also I made a sunny dress with 3 cute flowers with buttons:

For the top I used this stitch:

And some block stitch for skirt, repeating spiderweb motif:D Any edge you like, see above. I used simple shells.

I hope you like it!

I have some wips but, I don’t have enough time right now….

Anyway my summer collection looks pretty well (my opinion, anyway:D)

This photo has a link to my etsy shop:) You may visit it for more photos, I will upload here too:

Without links:

And you have the stitch I used. It’s a little bit tricky, those 2 dc are in the back of the treble on RS (right side) and in front of the treble on the wrong side (US terms).

Not too much for a month, but I will post more often I hope!

Lovely crocheted collar

I used a 6.5 mm hook (K) and 150 m Red Heart Detroit yarn (says 3 on label at weight). I think organic cotton is the same. Didn’t try yet.

Just skip this last chain (don’t work on it) and make dc in each next 2 dc.

I can say is a beginner intermediate-easy pattern? But it’s cute.

Jar cover

As I promised, small projects;) What about a jar cover or jar candle cover? It can be used as a glass cover or mug as well.

Let me show you:

jar cover black jar cover day light glass+black jar candle cover jar candle cover 2 jar cover 3

It fits to 350-450 g jars and a normal water glass or an x-long one.  height 10 cm (4 inches) for the cover and the stitch is stretch, if you don’t work too tight, so check your tension:) ( I mean check with your jar or glass):

I used a 3 mm hook and crochet thread Num 6, says on label:D

Chain 8, form a ring:

ch 8 form a ring

 

Round 1: ch3 (count as a dc), 15 dc in ring, join in 3rd ch from the beginning ch 3. (16 dc)

ch 3 15 dc in ring

Round 2: ch 4 (1 dc +ch 1), *dc in next st, ch 1*, repeat 14 more times (16 dc, ch 1 groups); join with sl st in 3rd ch from the beginning ch 3.

round 2 ch 4, dc in next st, ch 1, repeat 15 more timesround 2 join

 

Round 3: ch 4 (1d+ch 1), dc in next ch 1 space, dc, ch 1, dc in next ch1 space- it’s the V-stitch- and the ch 1 space means the hole formed between those 2 dc from Round 2. Anyway, dc, ch1, dc in each ch 1 space around. Join. (16 V-stitches).

round 3

Round 4: ch 3 (count as dc), *3 dc , ch 3, 3 dc in next V-stitch (in the ch 1 space), dc in next V-stitch,* repeat around and join: you will have an 8 petals flower (which can be used as a potholder):

round 4 joined

 

Round 5: ch 3, 3 dc, ch3, 3 dc in next ch 3 space, *dc in next dc, 3 dc, ch 3, 3dc in next ch 3 space*, repeat *_* around.

*Rounds 6 – 16 repeat Round 4.

Finishing: Round 17: ch 1, sc in same st, sc in each next 3 sts, 2 sc together, and repeat around. If you work very tight, you don’t need to decrease.

I hope that I didn’t miss anything. If you have any problem, just let me know…

Now, I finally finished  my yoke dress. (Finally, because I started it last year…)
