DUSKY IN PINK LADIES TOP
This is an easy sleeveless top with a plain upper yoke part and a lovely light lacy shelled lower half. It is a pretty easy pattern repeat and I’d say it can be attempted by almost anyone.. so come along and let’s see how we make this lovely creation. J
Do check my long Pinterest link for all the free patterns I’ve written up over the years right at the bottom of this blog.
photo (by designer) that got me started on this lovely creation.
Materials used : Today I’ve used ~ 1 skein of our superb Indian Oswal Cashmilon 3-ply variegated yarn with a 3.5 mm crochet hook
For Indians : Our lovely Indian Anchor knitting cotton and White rose knitting cotton yarns are a good substitute. I’d also suggest Alize cotton yarn – and you can get all of this with a easy mouse click on the top right hand side of this blog (read : Click here to buy yarns Online)
For Non-Indians : This pattern will work with Milford Satin knitting cotton, DMC Petra knitting cotton & Aunt Lydia Bamboo Viscose 10 knitting cottons as well. The designer has given her selection too.
Size : 32” – 34”
Difficulty level : Intermediate Skill level.
Stitches used :
fsc : Foundation Single Crochet : To refresh your skill on the fsc, please view this superb video by Tamara Kelly at the link http://www.mooglyblog.com/foundation-single-crochet-fsc/
Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual dc row start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row. Do take a look at this self explanatory video at http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/ . In case you are unhappy with this start, do continue with the usual ch 2 or ch 3 start. However, all instructions are given assuming that you’re using this chainless dc start.

These are just my brief notes.
This lovely creation can be made in several sizes and I think you can use any yarn with a suitable hook for it too. The yarn I have used is not one that has been suggested by the designer, and it worked pretty well. What I did do was work a quick swatch though – and I would suggest that, only so that you can keep tabs of which size you need to follow using your yarn.
The pattern is given for Chest size (S) 36” ; (M) 40” ; (L) 44” ; (XL) 48”
This is a bottom up construction.
I used a thinner yarn, so had to do some math of my own – anyway the S-size I am working on is a 34”.
I tried to get the stitch count for the pattern, and for Row 1, started with multiples of 4 + 1 (which worked for me) for the chest size of the person I am making this for.
May I suggest that you check the round chest and round waist measure and use the larger of the two measures.
As this is a top with a cord that goes across the chest, and then an A-lined finish, I worked with a slightly larger round chest measure.
