The beauty of variegated yarn is best revealed with quite simple stitches. A combination of 3 rows with basic crochet stitches was chosen to create this soft and drapey top that can be paired with skirts, jeans and shorts, layered over shirts, dresses and even turtleneck sweaters. The beautiful asymmetric edge will add an eye-catching finish to your look whether at work or socializing.

This project is suitable for cotton-rayon, cotton-bamboo or cotton-silk Fingering-weight/4 ply yarn. Besides you can create one of a kind textured fabric by working some rows with yarn left overs of different weight (ply or thickness). Great results are achieved with yarn of the same hue like in the original top.

You will receive:

detailed tutorial in ENGLISH for every row, see screen shots;

diagrams to have a better overview of your project and correct any of your mistakes at once; diagrams help to add/remove motifs if your gauge was off;

written explanation of all rows of the diagrams is included (in case you are not used to work with the crochet charts).

Level: intermediate/advanced beginner
