New crochet pattern in work - toddler cardigan.

Finally I am doing something for kids!
My brother and sister in law had a baby, so I decided to make something for him and why not to do a pattern in the process? :))

I like these 3 colors combo, may be it's too much, but everything looks cute on little ones. :))
Today was a day spent on a swatch, a bit if geometry to do a scaled schematic and a few rows with step-by-step pictures.
Crazy me, I started another pattern and I haven't finished the one that is almost ready -Rhombus stitch turquoise top, but I needed a break from it!

Happy crocheting, my friends!

Crochet pattern in work - soon in the shop - Off Shoulder Seamless Turquoise Top.

I finished the top and working on charts and instructions now. I am very tired, so I made some pictures and taking a break to post them.
I modified the initial pattern, making it a bit simpler and more classy in my opinion.
Very pleased with the result, this top will be one of my favorite crochet garments I believe.
So take a look and tell me what you think:

A few years back original one:

New crochet patern in work - off shoulder seamless top.

I was asked by many people when I was going to make that pattern. It was always in the back of my mind until recently. Yes, I've started.
I made this top a few years ago:

Crochet off-shoulder top pattern in work.

I am adapting this pattern to thicker yarn and bigger hook because the original was made out of size 10 crochet thread and 1 mm hook!
So instead I use fingering yarn and hook 3 mm.
Do you know turquoise is this season color? Now you do. :))

Crochet pattern in work.
I will change a few things to make it easier for everybody.
There is another pattern coming soon, but it's a subject for another post.

And visit my web-site to check all my patters:

Finally it's summer and I can have back my favorite place to crochet - at the beach! :))
Happy crocheting, my friends!
