Fibers and beads - My latest crochet top

Added Apr 24, 2018

This was one of those items I talked about in my UFO post. This turned out into quite the mix of fibers! It all started with this warm colored sand linen and silk yarn. I bought it thinking I’d crochet a simple vest that is decorative more than anything else, the idea of the beads came at the same time and I fell for these tiger eye beads.

Material Notes

There so many different fibers here: The sand colored front is a linen and silk blend, the melange back is a linen viscose blend and the plain purple (back yoke) is cotton :), to top it all there are also tiger eye beads crocheted into the front.

    The back and front look different so maybe the top can be worn both in front front and back front ways so you can have two tops instead of one and have more ideas for combinations (hope I said nothing wrong here). Nice job, the pattern of the front is a real felegree. The colour style is universal.

      Thank you so much Chula :) I love to crochet and find it a lot easier to do than knitting so far at least. Give it another try, maybe it works out this time around ;)
