Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch (counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each row/round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

2dc-V stitch: ( 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc ) into same stitch or space

    Thank you for sharing this pattern. I love the look. I am starting to make some things for myself, which I have never done. I look forward to making this for myself and anyone else who might would like it as well. I’ve never worked with DK weight yarn so this will be a new challenge for an old crocheter. I have been crocheting for 37 years. I always enjoy seeing your patterns, thank you for the work and dedication you have to crafting.

    I just came across this pattern and your site. I love this top. I was wondering if a worsted weight would work For this pattern?

      Hi,
      If you want to use worsted weight yarn then choose a bigger hook that matches. The tunic’s size will be larger, too.

  3. another oh so beautifully elegant pattern Maz! Not sure how you do it but you have some mad crochet skills! So glad you share with us at Snickerdoodle! We can just dream of doing half this beautiful!

    I Love when people that think they know what they’re doing write patterns and parts of it are complete gibberish! I Love your design, but what is your idea of lghweight yarn? Fingering? DK? Sport? And as far as giving yarn amounts in Grams, in order to use that bit of info we would need to know what yarn you used? Because every yarn weighs differently depending on the content and the loft. So yarn is measured by Yards or meters. We can purcase x amount of yards or meters and know we’ll have enogh yarn of the same dye lot to complete a Project. Buying yarn in Gram weights does not work. Beautiful design, too bad no useable info besides that

      Hi there,
      Light weight yarn is also called Dk yarn ( 300 gr ~ 900 yards ). If I meant other type of yarn I would use exact name ( fingering/ sport yarn). Yarn is not just measured by yard, if so you won’t see gram or ounce measurements in every skein. Have a nice day!
