Beautiful crochet top...

I just received an email from Annie's Catalog Store today with a picture of a crochet top pattern that I think is so different and absolutely stunning!

Here it is in a solid color:

I just ordered the Crochet Lace Top which Annie's sells as an electronic download pattern; next I have to buy the yarn. I will be posting pictures as soon as I get my project finished.

Another crochet top to add to my Summer wardrobe....

I have been busy crocheting to add a couple of new tops for this summer.

This top was crocheted from side to side and took about ten (10) days to complete. I used Bernat Softee Baby Yarn in mint; I just love how soft the yarn feels and it is the perfect summer weight. The finished pattern fit exactly as expected; however, I did decide to make mine a little longer using the notes that were included in the pattern.

Lazy Daisy Top

The flowers around the neckline are added after you finish the top and can be left off if you are not into the frilly stuff!

The pattern is one of many in the Crochet! Spring 2015 which is available as a pdf download that can be purchased on Annie's website.

Just wanted to share...

I recently purchased a crochet tunic pattern from Annie's to add to my summer wardrobe. I fell in love with the red, white and blue theme and I could just imagine how it would look with a pair of white slacks and sandals.

It took me about two weeks of crocheting each night to complete the tunic. I used a different yarn than the pattern called for, but I stayed with the red, white and blue.

Here is a picture of my finished project:

The pattern is called "Dress Up Tunic" by Mona Modica and is listed as intermediate; I wouldn't recommend it to a beginning crocheter, but an experienced crocheter should have no problem.
