Coral Swirls Coverup

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Coral Swirls Coverup Link to website or photo www.crochetbykathy.com/Apparel1.html What are you most proud of? I think making three different sizes of "swirl" motifs was a unique way to achieve different sizes for the coverup. (I was also thinking it would be fun to connect these same swirls and create an afghan, but haven't decided on what yarn to use for that yet!) What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you love thread crochet, this is a great project for the intermediate crocheter. I would also suggest cutting out the front and back pieces from the assembly chart and taping them together for a visual of how the motifs fit together. Two assembly charts, in addition to the three motif sizes, are provided to achieve multiple sizes for the coverup. The finished chest-hip sizes/lengths are: 33"/29", 37-1/2"/33", 38-1/2"/29", 42"/37", 43-3/4"/33", and 49"/37". The pattern is available for $4.50 and is written in U.S. terms.

What you will need

  • Crochet cotton
  • size 10
  • in 350 yd. (320 m) balls - 4 to 6 balls of coral; and a size 7 (1.65 mm) steel crochet hook.
