9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / got a great idea but need some help please! on: December 14, 2009 12:30:05 PM
ok so i was bored and couldn't sleep at all last night, i was about to pull my hair out when out of nowhere i got this great idea for an off-shoulder top!

i have been looking all over the place for a top that fits my vision but to no avail. that's when i decided to roll up my sleeves and attempt it myself.

i made some bell sleeves and a fitted tube that goes from the very bottom of my armpit down to my waist. since i was using sport weight yarn i decided to do it in hdc since sc came out too stiff for my liking.

here's where i need some help:
i was wondering how in world can i attach the sleeves to the tube in an off shoulder fashion? i'd be forever grateful for the help.
