Crochet Child’s Halter Top

Published April 20, 2017 by Jayashiangel


I want to give a shout out to Flybabytina who posted on her blog this awesome free pattern that was just what I was looking for so I could make a matching child’s halter to go with an adult halter top I already made….This top worked up great super quick and 5T size it took almost 3.5 oz skein $5 or less if you use a coupon as cheap as $2.19 for Hobby Lobby I love this cotton….or $3 for 2 balls of Sugar and Cream from Walmart…I just love this pattern :O) I am addicted to it plus it will now be my go to pattern for kids tops…

Using this chart made sure that the shoulder measurement across the top chest area was less 9 3/4 inches as pattern called for so it was just a little big narrower 9. Then I follow the pattern to 7 inches for the top section before the ruffle/lacey then followed up withe ruffle part to measure 10.5 and then added the straps :O) great gift for cute shorts you find or even a skirt u grab at the store to match it :O) I bought 2 pairs of shorts one was $4.88 for the 4 of July one and the other red/white/blue hearts was $2.88. So the total cost for me was $10.76 plus time…:O) which was free too¬†

Lots of Crochet Projects

Published April 11, 2017 by Jayashiangel

As you know I get so busy I forget to post new things. I tend to finish one project and jump right into the next with out remembering to share some pictures and best of all the links to those project /patterns…

First project I finished was simple crochet baby bandana’s something super quick to have in my house stash for the unexpected baby gift my mom tends to call me about that she needs me to whip up something in 24 hours so she can give it the next day for the baby shower?…(why do people who don’t crochet always assume we can crochet a baby blanket in 24 hours?)

The second/third project was a gift for a friends little girl crochet easter basket and crochet puffy bunnies to go with them upon completing them I ended up making a second one for a co-workers little girl who is the same age 3…

The fourth/fifth projects ended up being crochet apron style halter tops for the little girl’s I mentioned above I tested out 2 different sizes as I was not to sure how much bigger a 5/6 size was to a 3/4 size was going to be..These tops took less then 1 skein of yarn and just over a 66 inches or 5.5 feet of ribbon for the strap….

The sixth and seventh projects were for one of the kid’s above mom a quick gifts too I made adult halter top and one sun top for spring /summer…I was not to sure of her size M or L so I added extra rows and a made them both a little longer estimating she maybe 34-36 size…
