I started crocheting when I was about 8 years old. I remember my grandmother was very religious and stood by the standard of no work on Sundays. I was caught designing a dress for a doll and got in serious trouble because to her it was work. To me it was fun! Serious difference of opinion there! I have been designing and crocheting since then, I picked up sewing at 10. My first project was a pair of pants that I sewed the fronts together and the backs together instead of a front to a back. Very awkward, but I finally figured it out! Now I make and design most of my own clothes in either medium and often put the two together to create something special.View all patterns by designer (10) »
I needed a cool to wear and professional looking Henley Tank Top that would be flattering and comfortable that didn't rely on an under layer. This Henley Tank is the result of that. This is a nicely tailored easy wear top done in Carons Naturally Spa. Super soft and light. The increases and decreases are made mostly with hook changes and the pattern is my usual recipe hybrid. Easy to read and keep track of. I don't like anything any more complicated than it has to be! This top buttons down the front but rather than button holes, I just used the natural openings in the stitches. Color changes are evenly spaced and simple, The only reason for the more advanced skill level is the color changes as this can sometimes be challenging to a new crocheter.
