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…

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…

Girls Shrug

Published September 18, 2015 by Jayashiangel

I wanted/needed to make my niece a little girls shrug but I had no pattern so I grabbed the one I used for toddler and decided to modify it…Upped it to a size 10-12 matching it to a Girls shirt of the same size to make sure it would work and then added a button to make sure it will stay on her better 🙂
