Easygoing Crochet Tank

Vertically worked with offset, mini-shell stitches to create a seamless tank top, this design has no right or wrong side. Shaping is completed with increases and decreases on one side of the row only which allows for an easier-to-manage garment appearance. The longer length adds to the style, with an unfinished edge to add a nice scalloped effect that’s chic and effortless.

Serene Wrap Skirt

This wrap-around skirt is worked with a color change in each row to create a stand out border at the hem. Ties on either side of the waist allow for a custom fit, and added shaping of short rows ensures for a flattering result. Combined with stretchy stitches for additional comfort, you’ll find yourself grabbing this comfy and stylish crochet skirt time and time again.

Soleil Stripes Tank

Worked vertically, this sunny tank is worked with yarn carries, so there are few ends to weave in! The partial stripes are jagged in nature, yet planned, to allow for a balanced feel while still feeling whimsical. Imagine how great it will look with dark wash jeans and your favorite pair of sunnies.
