GRACE’s SLEEVELESS PINEAPPLE TOP


GRACE’s SLEEVELESS PINEAPPLE TOP

There is something about pineapples.. it just gets you.. and this lovely top by Vicky Chan has an uneven edge (or an asymmetric hemline, as the designer says), which is so lovely, so just had to get this one done too. J
And was it just coincidental that my niece was visiting and this turned out to be a perfect fit for her.. or Providence, huh ??

This is a paid pattern, so I cannot write anything about it.
The reason I am writing this blog is that I’ve found we are unable (sometimes) to visualize what a particular project will look like with locally available  yarns.  In India, we do not get all the yarns that are suggested on the pattern sheet(s), but this one made with our locally available Red Rose knitting cotton yarn shows us that hey! We can make this one too .. J

And this is the original photograph put up by the designer, just so you know which one we’re doing here and the link to find it all http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jordan---sleeveless-pineapple-top



Materials used : Today I’ve used our Indian Red Rose knitting cotton Yarn ~ 2 balls , with a 3.5 mm crochet hook. 

  Pictures showing Stitch detail , look at it sideways for the uneven hemline.. and hey it looks great on top of a skirt as well 

Loved this pattern, and will hopefully be able to come back to make it once again in the future.   There is an on-going CAL for this pattern on Ravelry at http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/vicky-chan-designs/2945768/1-25

Enjoyed this ?? I sure did.. come back right here for freebie patterns.. and/or some wonderful crochet inspiration.    J

If you're visiting me here for the first time, and have liked the experience, do add me to your mailing list (for your convenience) , and all my future free patterns will come straight to your mail box.  


Have a great day and see you soon. J

I have a few other tops that may inspire you.  Enjoy
