1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / my first garment crochet: bumblebee pasty and g-string set. on: March 15, 2010 11:28:47 AM
i am a left-handed person who taught herself to crochet right-handed. it has taken me literally ages to get down the simple swoops and maneuvers that someone with the right-hand advantage would already have. i know that there are books/tutorials on how to crochet left-handed, but i found it best to just learn the most popular way; to get the biggest bang for my buck, so to speak. i have made minor items, such as washcloths, coasters, and potholders, but wanted to try something simple and new. my cousin recently requested a simple, black bikini, and i promised her that i would have it made for her trip to vegas, which is about a month or so away.

i can do sc, dc, hdc, and so on, but felt the need to go ahead and learn to increase/decrease before trying to tackle this project. in the process of learning to decrease and decide how to formulate the bottoms for her bikini, i decided to make a g-string.

in the process of learning to increase by adding multiple stitches into one stitch, i made a circle and formed the pasties.

so, what started out as practice for the big she-bang ended in the resulting bumblebee pasty/g-string set: my first "garments".

i modeled the size of the g-string to my own proportions, all with sc, and then, when making the pasties, simply formed a 6-chain circle, with the first row being 12dc, second row being 24dc, and third row being 36dc. i then made simple black tassels and sewed them into the pasties!

i think that this ensemble would be cute to show off to a partner or even as a performance piece when paired with a black corset that only cinches the midriff. lemme know what you guys think about it!
