New project

Began my next project! This blouse is a commission project…my friend’s co-worker saw my latest crocheted halters and asked me to make her a top. I found this pattern a while back on someone’s blog, and showed it to her and she loved it.

This pattern calls for crochet thread and a 1.75 mm hook! (steel hook size 6) Ouch! After using a size E and F on the previous projects, this small hook makes for tedious work! I chose “Aunt Lydia’s” crochet thread size 10. I am using two strands of it to meet the gauge required. The pattern begins at the neck and it’s a really simple pattern. The color is creme, and so far, it looks lovely!

That top is going to be gorgeous. Top down tops are the best and allow room for personal creativity.

I agree, Sheila! I have already found that to be true. I had to add rows to the sleeve caps to allow room for a looser fit. So far, it’s going well, but with doubling the yarn, I’m sure it will eat up at lease 6-8 balls. (good thing crochet thread is cheap)

    I've been knitting & crocheting many years, and it is great to see the rise in popularity. Basically,the loves of my life include: knitting, crocheting, being with my family and giving thanks to God for how He's blessed my life, but not necessarily in that order!
