Crochet: Other Top
This mesh top looks great thrown over a cami. It is made, top-down, in the round, with raglan shoulders and shaped body. Made small, it will be tight and fitted.

Crochet: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl is similar to the Kelp Forest Shawlette but it is a half-circle, not a circle. Starting from the neck, the rows are made by crocheting the thin edge into the wide edge.

My Duck Feet are knit in the round with DP needles and cotton yarn. The socks have a simple heel and then spread out into three toes. The center toe is shaped at the tip with a couple of short rows. Then the top and bottom are grafted together. After knitting the shape, the toes are defined with applied I-cord.
