Knit top; crochet skirt

Added Sep 7, 2011

A self-drafted top, made of an acrylic knit in a blue/grey colour that ended up looking awful on me, so I dyed it yellow with iDye in Yellow and it ended up this marvellous khaki/green colour! So serendipitous!
I crocheted the skirt as well, using Jo Sharp yarns. I have a pattern for it here

Material Notes

acrylic knit fabric, pure merino wool yarns (Jo Sharp)

    Love both pieces! Did you knit the top or used knit fabric? The skirt is really pretty, I’m experimenting with crochet also, but nothing this big. Better at knitting, but it hurts my hand so mostly use the sweater machine:) And OMG your kitchen is my dream, so organized and white!

      Thank you! The top is sewn up out of knit fabric. I bought it as fabric :)
