Be sure you stock up on Sirdar "Simply Recycled Aran" for this beauty. I so loved working with this summer-y yarn. And I'm sure you'll love it, too. 
Btw - have you tried working shred stitches yet? This pretty simple drop sleeves sweater will come up just beautifully.

Troodie

I started playing with this beautiful peacock yarn some time ago. I kinda wanted to make the Triangle Cowl, but I changed my mind at some point. 


I made it more easy to wear as the top part is not a long loop, but something more like a cowl neck. It drapes beautifully and is very comfortable to wear. You can even try to wear it as a hood. That's why I named it Troodie - a triangle hoodie. 



I made it in the same stitch pattern as for Triangle Cowl, so I thought I should make it in a different stitch pattern the next time and make a whole new pattern out of it - what d'ya think? 

PS - if you're interested in the floral skirt, get them HERE.

Slide Tank Top - Crochet Pattern

I'm happy to present you the brand new crochet pattern - Slide Tank Top. It is made using short rows - a technique that makes the rows go in different directions. After learning slip stitch short rows I developed this version of short rows in traditional and filet crochet mix. 

 
The pattern starts with a step by step photo tutorial to understand the principle of short rows used in this pattern.
Sizes XS to 3XL available.
