New crochet pattern in work. Progress.

New website same post view here.

I had to stop today since I got too big D-rings. Couldn't finish the bag.

I also made a strap and sides/bottom. The only problem of getting it all together were D-rings. :))
happy crocheting, my friends!

Project in work. Crochet square worked from center in double crochet.

Today I tried a few ways to make a perfect square worked in double crochet from the center. I had 4 different charts, none worked for me, so I ended up inventing my own way. I like that seam is invisible and there is no bias, as it always happens when you are working in one direction.
My project is growing up. :)

Happy crocheting, my friends!

New crochet pattern in the shops - Seamless Boat Neck Crochet Pullover Sweater / Top Pattern.

Hey everybody,
I am excited to show this new pattern in my shops.
What looks like made out of motifs actually made as one piece with connections as you go between "motifs" and for side and sleeve seams.
It's shaped loose or over-sized. I personally recommend dark colors to really show this pretty stitch.

Pattern is available at:



Crochet Seamless Drop Shoulder Open Stitch Sweater / Pullover / Top / Cover Up.
Though the stitch looks like consisted of motifs, there are no motifs; body is made as one piece with connections as you go for side seams. Sleeves are started from the body and made as one piece each with connection as you go for seams.

*This is a crochet pattern and not the finished item*

Crochet level:
- Intermediate
You should know how to crochet following stitches:
ch (chain), sl st (slip stitch), sc (single crochet), dc (double crochet),tr (treble crochet), puff (explained), picot (explained)

This pattern includes:
- schematic for sizes and individual schematic for every size, explaining order of work
- written instructions under step-by-step picrures
- charts (charts reding skill is not required)

Instructions are given in English language, American terminology

Crochet hook:
- 3 mm

Recommended materials:
- 230 (280, 300, 360, 390) g of Fingering weight yarn (100 g / 3.5 oz / 300 m / 330 yards); shown here – Lithuanian 6 ply Linen Yarn from YarnStories on Etsy in #402 Radiant Orchid - buy 3 (3, 3, 4, 4) balls of 3 ply (100 g / 3.5 oz / 600 m / 660 yards) and use 2 strands from inside and outside of one ball (fingering weight requires 6 ply of this yarn)

- 81 (94.5, 108, 121.5, 135) cm / 32 (37 ¼, 42 ½, 47 ¾, 53)'' bust circumference
- fit is loose, so feel free to choose smaller size if you are between sizes (see Schematic for broad-wise stretched measurements)

- Technically there are no motifs, but you can visually separate square “motifs” in this stitch. 1 “motif” side is about 8 cm (3 1/8''), 1 smaller “motif” in the center of bigger “motif” side is about 3.5 cm (1 3/8''). Make a swatch (Chart 1, step-by-step pictures) 3 x 3 “motifs”, measure central motif for gauge

- Pullover body is made as one piece with connections as you go to eliminate side seams
- Each sleeve is started from pullover and made as one piece with connections as you go to eliminate seams
