Child Size Swing Top

Published August 13, 2017 by Jayashiangel

I came across these really cute and quick swing tops. These tops go from start to finish very quickly in less then one day. They would be perfect to use when you have a skirt/shorts or even pant that no top just matches right….plus the amount of yarn was wild less then one full skein 6 oz.. I plan to make another with those new cute Cake style skeins..The pattern on Ravelry is free however you can join them free and have access to lots of free and paid for pattern. This pattern comes in sizes child 3-7 years and teenager.. However I am assuming following the pattern concept you could making it larger for an adult…

I decided to change the pattern just a little as I was surfing the net and found a different style strap done on a similar one and thought this strap option was quicker as well as a better option for kids as I didn’t want the button/strap to pull to much on the top…

This top I whipped up should fit a child size 5/6 I added an extra row of DC before starting the shell row…

Puffy Stitch Shawl

Published August 13, 2017 by Jayashiangel

I joined a group on Ravelry that does Crochet along /Knit along projects each month and I have joined the Cal this month and this project was what I made the rules for the Cal where to do a project using Red heart Yarn/Use any pattern I wanted to learn a new stitch…Perfect right ? Wrong after looking at a million patterns I couldn’t decided however I wanted to learn the Puffy stitch but not to do like 500 of the them in a single project well I came across this quick cowl pattern that I turned into a shawl that used this stitch and it was just perfect for this project….As you can see I had a few ends to weave in before it was finished…

Published August 13, 2017 by Jayashiangel

I have been busy crocheting however I keep forgetting to post and share on my blog…This cute little purse was done for my DD #2 who lives back east for her birthday in July…I also wanted to add a few extra items for her bag so I whipped up a little change purse as well as a Pen Monster holder to go along with it.. But I couldn’t leave out her son so I also made him a Monster Holder as well as school would be starting soon and it would be perfect….

Simple Adult Crop Top

Published August 13, 2017 by Jayashiangel

So since I did some child style halter tops it was only fair I try my hand at a few adult ones as well…I found this simple crop top halter style top and gave it a whirl..I however found that the person I planned to give it to doesn’t like to show that much skin so I decided to add some V-stitch to the bottom rows to make it way longer as the top just barley covered her top section….The pink on I did first and then added the V-stitch and the turquoise one I just added extra row to the middle for length and did less V-stitch..I think I prefer the pink style…
