Sverige crop_top
by kneema Follow

my latest addiction is chunky tunisian crochet....so this time i used t-shirt yarn and a 25mm hook-needle (in fact i dont have such a big hook but i managed to use my knitting needle as a hook....). Its a simple and easy crop top, perfect as a summer-pre_autumn project. ;)

    great Nora!I used Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS). You can find a tutorial for the stitch here: http://newstitchaday.com/how-to-tunisian-crochet-the-tunisian-simple-sti...  but there are many tutorials, you can use whatever you want. There isn't a pattern for the top, i just thought that i could make a rectangular piece with a hole for neck, fold it (almost) in half, sew edges keeping space for the armholes and that was it. The really great thing in this stitch is that you can easily switch from crocheting to knitting and vice versa because as you will see, while you crochet you keep stitches on the ''afghan'' hook. So,to make the neck_hole i knitted a row, in the next row i knitted some stitches then bind off some stitches for neck, then knitted the remaining stitches. In the next row i kept knitting and also cast on (in the middle of the row) as many stitches i ve binded off previously, so the row has exactly the same stitches as in the begining. You knit one more row (or two, i dont remember well but the crochet stitch requirements will guide you) and then you switch to crochet until the desired length is achieved. i m not experienced in writting patterns, hope that i ve explained it a little...happy stitching, glad you ve liked it, cant wait to see your work ;)
