Pink crocheted tank top

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

Tonight I finished this beauty:

roz00

pink crocheted top

roz0

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)

0749934d656c7af9deb9b2ffb049ff84

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)

I use a new app for etsy shops which helps you to sell directly on social media. And I have Direct Checkout on Etsy:D

Now let me introduce you my new crafts.

First a freeform vest:

on the back it’s a tree, few spirals and a lot of flowers.

A tatted necklace (needle tatting) which took me a while to accomplish, but pretty happy with it:

#spring colors:)

a blouse/tunic in black and white

the up is made with a really pretty yarn, and soft too.

And now I try to finish some new projects. I will show you only:

Lovely, isn’t it? But it takes a lot of time.

New jewelry and crochet

Happy New Year everyone!

I was so busy crafting that I forgot to post lately. I’m sorry for this. Let’s start with my new bracelets and necklaces. Some are listed on etsy or alittlemarket, some, not yet. I didn’t have time.

I hate when they try to translate your website and/or make “improvements” to help you. Grrrrrr. I hate when I want to post and things look different. This is an amethyst necklace with crystals and fimo beads, gemstones and chips. The second one is a Y-necklace, still amethyst:

il_570xn-904619162_3sj3

this one is already listed in my etsy shop.

And some nice bracelets I made

all made in the last two weeks.

About crochet now. I made a cute circular bolero with long sleeves in shades of grey, purple, pink and white:

this one is listed on my etsy shop. It seems that I can’t link anymore, or I don’t know where because they try to translate in Romanian (just trying, the result is a full bullshit). So, next time maybe I will post in my brand new website… I don’t have a pattern for this bolero. I will make another one to see how it works.

Crochet & beading

Some new jewelry in my shop and a new halter top in some baby yarn.

Let’s start with the jewelry.

I exercised herringbone stitch with different size beads, and the result is this bracelet:

herringbone stitch #bracelet

The main color beads have some metallic irisations, but they are glass beads.

a little bit too much photoshop here I’m afraid.

And an ocean theme freeform bracelet with some pink quartz chips and sea shells:

#freeform #bracelet

and triple spiral necklace:

#triple spiral #necklace

More pictures on my etsy shop;)

About #crochet, my new halter top in pastel colors, a baby yarn, acrylic and viscose: It’s a chevron stitch with some cluster flowers as edging:

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

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!
