Welcome the new www.instagram.com/explore/tags/FLORESCENCEtop !
Its construction is pretty simple – you will create beautiful vertical panels running right down the middle, then crochet from these panels to the sides of your sweater or top until reaching the width stated for your size. This pattern is written for bust circumference from 75 to 148 cm = from 29.5’’ to 58.5’’ – please see yarn requirements for each size and style below.
The PDF on 14 pages is written for 3 different lengths: 63 cm = 25‘’, 43 cm = 17‘’, 53 cm = 21‘’. For lengthening this garment you can crochet longer panels in the middle.
You can create a stripy garment that will inject fun into your summer wardrobe or make the vertical line the focal point of your outfit by choosing gradient or solid yarn.
This garment will suit diverse tastes, preferences and ages – the instructions are provided for making a SWEATER with elbow-length sleeves and closed back and a sleeveless TOP with open back. For crocheting longer sleeves just repeat the rows until reaching the desired length.
Both top and sweater can be dressed up or down. I already paired the #FlorescenceTOP with jeans and shorts to balance out the romantic vibes and create a harmonious casual look. A top with a flowing maxi skirt will add a carefree and relaxed bohemian flair to your outfit.
