Using the square motif and trim patterns below as theme, make a bralette and underwear set. For this exercise, I used 4-ply cotton thread and a 2mm hook. MAKING THE BRALETTE MAKING THE PANTY USING DUPLET CROCHET FASHION MAGAZINE – BRALETTE STRAP Here are six strap designs from Duplet crochet fashion magazine from the Ukraine. I highly recommend these magazines for those wishing to learn to modify and mix and match patterns to make their own. For the bralette, I used strap design no. 10 (below). This is from Duplet Swimsuit Edition 3. USING DUPLET CROCHET FASHION MAGAZINES – MAKING THE UNDERWEAR I made the front and back of the underwear in one piece, starting at the front, down the crotch then to the back. I took my own measurements for the width at the front and back and used the standard sizes for the crotch panel. I used solid dc stitches, decreasing at the front and incr
In this project, I used an all-over stitch pattern to make a cropped camisole. I worked with that stitch pattern again but this time, I made a gauge swatch and made crochet symbols charts showing the modifications done to the pattern. Work in progress: The cropped camisole and the Walkednights Bralette underneath. The basic stitch pattern I used is this. This must be modified to be worked in the round and to shape. So here is the basic stitch pattern. It is worked in rows. I want my camisole to be worked in rounds, from the bottom up, seamlessly. So I need to modify this pattern slightly so that it can be worked in the round. Here is an example of the modification. The stitch pattern shown worked in rounds. I made a gauge swatch so that I can determine how many stitches I need for my foundation to fit me, ad so that I can write and make the pattern in other sizes. In the meantime here is my gauge swatch. I used 3.5mm hook and 4-ply cotton yarn. T
Crochetology exercise – given the square motif and trim below, make an article of clothing. My project is a pair of boyshorts and a bra top to be used for swimming. The challenge here is first to make a half version of the motif. The next challenge is to determine the layout of the motifs to make the shape of the intended size particularly for the bra top. MAKING THE BRA TOP Use three motifs joined together to make the bra top. Use more motifs to make the band below the bust and around the back. Use half motifs to shape under the arms. Photos below show the bra top construction in progress. Crocheted ties are used along the bottom of the bra top. The straps are simple rows of sc stitches. MAKING THE BOYSHORTS The boyshorts consists of motifs all around the hips, then rows of treble stitches along the top to make the waistband. The crotch is shaped also with treble stitches shaped by adding stitches
Forest Candy is a colorful necklace made with green crochet cotton thread and multi-color thread. Choose you favorite multi-color thread – in sunny colors such as this, or in blues, browns or reds to change the mood of the piece. When making crocheted jewelry such as this, you may wish to starch the pieces so that the edges don’t fold over while wearing.You can starch mildly and wash off when you launder the necklace. Apart from stiffening, starch protects the fabric and so dirt goes to the starch and not on the fabric. If you like these patterns and make a finished object, please let me know. I would love to see finished work or modifications of the patterns I make. If you have any questions or comments or if you find any errors in the patterns, please let me know as well, so that I can correct and update the patterns. Skill Level: Intermediate Finished Measurements: Approximately 11” long without ties; 26” long with ties Yarn: Multi-color crochet cotton thread size 8
TRIPPLETIMER | “Trippletimer” is a crocheted bolero that I named after the Spanish dance in triple time. It is a basic bolero construction of one piece – from the bottom up. The intention in this pattern is to begin with something basic, then to modify in little sections (such as the edging and sleeves) and then larger modifications (such as using a different openwork stitch for the body of the bolero). I hope that “Trippletimer” encourages you to modify, improvise and begin making your own bolero design. TRIPPLETIMER “Trippletimer” is a bolero made from the bottom up as a single piece, dividing into three to make the armholes and then seaming together at the shoulders. It is one of the most basic garment constructions in crochet. A basic openwork stitch is needed for patterns of this kind. It should be a stitch that can be increased at both sides. The openwork stitch used here is the Trellis Picot Stitch (ch 7, sc in next loop, picot) – it is an openwork stitch in the sh
Here’s a pattern modification exercise. Given the pattern for a capelet below, make a bra and underwear set. My project, called “Skingerstraat”, is a bandeau and a pair of boyshorts. I used 3-ply cotton yarn and a 2.4mm hook. The capelet is from a Japanese crochet book I got several years ago from National Book Store (unfortunately, NBS doesn’t seem to sell these books anymore…). The book is a collection of autumn and winter crochet garments. Although I can’t really make these items for use in a tropical country, I buy pattern books like these because I can always use the patterns as base or inspiration for my own projects. Anyway, the challenge ion “Skingerstraat” is to take the scallop section of the capelet pattern and modify it so that it is worked in the round. You may take other parts of the pattern to make your own design. The other challenge is to work the scallop pattern over a different base of stitches. The trick here is to count stitches and work in thos

It has been a very long journey of seventeen years. I still have the gifts you sent me. You might recognize those balls of thread, those beads. I remember the tea I drank. Some of you sent me tea and yarn. I remember you were worried that the yarn might smell of cigarettes because you smoked. But there was nothing to worry about. There is a tatting needle there too. I bought it from one of you. The large wooden bowl is a gift from my mother, the little one is a gift from a university in Taiwan. I used to light incense sticks with a match. But one day I got a lighter because the wind kept blowing out the fire. There is a sewing kit. I did not buy it. My husband did. He buys sewing kits when he is alone. The small blue picture frame holds a photo of piglets I had seven years ago. Two piglets about a week old are fighting over a bottle of milk. One of them is Bootleg. The other is Brownie. All the piglets died. Only Bootleg survived. He is the sire of all my pigs today. The photo is fadin
Yesterday, I started working on a revision of the Square Motif Belt with Pineapple Fringes. I used worsted weight yarn and a 3.5mm crochet hook. Originally, I used two strands of cotton thread size 8. This time, I was determined to make a bulkier belt, with no fringes, and styled like a corset. I finished work on the belt this afternoon and am very happy with the result. I started by crocheting the motifs and joined them together to make a strip. The strip is 5 motifs long, just shorter than my size which is good because the belt will stretch and I want this to have ties in the front. Then I crocheted a round of sc’s all around the belt. I made a second round of [3sc’s, picot] along the sides of the belt but not along the ends of the belt. The ends of the belt, I reinforced with some plastic corset bones. I did this be holding the plastic bones next to the sc’s and made sc’s around it. I also had to sew the ends of the sc rounds in order to keep the plastic bones in place.
