I’ve tried a few little crochet experiments the past couple weeks and I wanted to share them here. (By the way, if you check out my Instagram I sometimes share sneak peeks and work-in-progress shots, and also copious amounts of cat photos. So if you’re into that :), give it a look.)
I mentioned in a post a little while ago a list of crochet projects I wanted to try, and I’m thinking I can technically mark “make a boxy top” off my list. I’m pretty satisfied with this first one, and it’s so simple that it can be easily altered ie. changing length/width/stitch pattern/sleeves or no sleeves, which makes me even happier with it.
I was going to try a more open stitch, but I decided I wanted to see what it looked like with triple crochet/9mm hook/Caron Simply Soft. I’m pretty happy with how it looks, and I also think this top might look great in a Solomon’s Knot stitch.
I decided to go with a little bit of a longer length probably from being inspired by the style of the likes of Hackwith Design House, Martha W. McQuade, and tons of baggy, boxy tunics and dresses on Pinterest. All in all, I’m pretty happy with this tunic/dress thing, and there are only maybe a few slight tweaks I’d make. I won’t be wearing it out until it gets a bit chillier, however; it’s way to hot to even be thinking about wearing a full crochet dress right now.
The next couple outfits I put together to style some jewelry I’ve made recently. While I’m definitely an amateur when it comes to jewelry, I do play around with it (mostly crochet-related) occasionally, as you may have seen before here and here. This time I’ve been experimenting with crocheted tube beads and having probably more fun than I should have making Tunisian crochet rings and bracelets from mercerized cotton thread.
Love that two-toned bracelet.

I threw this outfit together from some things I’ve worn recently just to share this jewelry, but I really, really like it! I’m probably gonna’ wear some form of it out as soon as I have a reason to. It’s just so colorful and lovely.
