1  Re: crochet + knitting mix breed???? haha in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by crazy_pinKy on: April 20, 2008 06:21:22 AM
I used crochet for my razor cami (pattern available online by Katie from allmystars). I didn't want a strappy top I couldn't wear to work and knitting small cap sleeves seemed too difficult. Crochet is so much easier! So I just took a crochet pattern I had and added this to the top part and a random pattern for the bottom (the knit ribbing at the bottom didn't look good so I had to cut it off).

This pattern can be added to any knit tube so I've added the pattern (chart!!!) for you  Grin

2  Turquoise summer top & bikini top in Crochet: Completed Projects by crazy_pinKy on: July 16, 2007 01:15:41 AM
Pretty simple blue crochet top with 3.5mm hook, Novita Tahiti - ribbony cotton yarn. Body consists of 10 motifs. (sorry about the painful looking sunburn)

Different cotton threads in really bright colors, 1.5mm hook, simple shell stitch pattern instead of the usual double crochet. Probably won't crochet a matching bikini bottom - it might sag in a horrific way Huh

In case you don't know how to crochet a regular boob cup here's a random tutorial from my computer, I've gathered tons from all over the web Grin It's really important to keep trying the cup on for size to get a good fit. Make one at a time so the first one will be an example for you.
NB! I didn't make this green top nor the tutorial.

I love doing lace patterns! I'm not going to finish this because it would take more sceins than I would like. I was really surprised to see that the lace pattern still comes out wonderful in a chunkier yarn. Here is mine, this is one scein, click..

Why on earth would you buy 7 yards??? That's like 6.4 meters! Shocked Mine was done with 1.75m = 1.9 yards and the sleeves are a bit too long (my store bought jackets-coats have too shorts sleeves!) The pattern I taped together was about 1.63m And I told my seamstress to leave all those extra cm (175-163=12 cm that makes 6 additional cm for both sleeves) for the sleeve length. I don't know what she did, but they are loooong enough! I would make sure the fabric is wide and long enough to place one pattern above the other (see pic). With my woolen fabric it didn't matter which way she turned it to cut the pattern out.

Sorry but I have no tips for taping together the pattern. It took me 3 days Undecided and it came out a little asymmetrical Cheesy Just look at the part with Chinese symbols and look how the paper has to overlap to match the text together.

I'm a EU size 38/US size 8? and I think it fits perfectly. It looked too baggy on my mother who is EU size 36/US size 6? Mom thought I should try shoulder pads but I think my wide shoulders are all the padding I need Tongue

Blyss, if you need help with the computer, PM me!

Cutout, it's not 15 pages. It's 28 pages for the back and 28 pages for the front!

I did not make this!!! My seamstress did. I didn't want to ruin the beautiful woolen fabric.


And upside down.. The sleeve length is perfect this way!

Very cute boob tube tops!! Grin

Hope this pic of my cowl neck top helps. The dark blue parts on the drawing are suppoused be "the inside". I made it btw and added sequins to the side Cheesy But the material is bad and doesn't let the skin breathe at all.

Sorry for the crappy pics. My camera is on vacation in Greece and these are some old digital video cam pics.

And I can't believe I couldn't find a cowl neck tutorial here. C'mon, it's craftster!! I learned to do that top from a tutorial I saw in t shirt surgery @ LJ over a year ago.

Hello!  Kiss

Click the picture to see bigger pics! Wink I am really pleased with this boobholder. I de-puffed the sleeves a bit. It knit up really fast but I had to rip it a bit to take it in from the back (it was gaping). Grin I love it!!!!
