Beginner easy variation of Simple Elegance: Airy Summer Top
DIY-ers say the end of winter is just the right time to plan and start working on new summer projects.
Well, this boho style shirt or tunic with crochet flowers insert (and, of course, fringes) is a really cute piece of crochet wear which I’m sure many of us would love to add to our summer wardrobe (I know I would ) 🙂
As far as I can tell, the tunic looks a combination of filet mesh + textured crochet, appears quite light and airy and doesn’t seem to use much cotton yarn. There’s no pattern, only these few graphic tutorials from the Russian magazine Журнал Мод, which look quite similar and nice to combine and improvise with. Crochet experts, please enjoy !

Cotton or viscose geometric lace sweater, suitable to wear all year round from spring to autumn. Equally great for mild Mediterranean winters 🌦☔️ and warmer climates🌞.Knitting instructions in brief: with 5mm needles cast on 83 sts (size S/38) or 88 sts (size M/40) for back and front set up rows, 49 sts for the sleeves. Work according to charts below (click to enlarge in a separate window).
Note: Back is worked identically except for rows 115 – 117 which should be knit all the way through the remaining 43/41 sts, i.e. without eliminating the central stitches for the neck shaping.

Mandarin Chinese is one of the languages I read, write and used to speak actively and quite fluently only a few years back. I don’t use it as often as I did in speech any more, but I find it more than useful on the web. One of the things you can do with passive Chinese if you’re a crafter is read and explore blogs.
Feliz Início da Primavera 🍸 to all friends who are looking forward to the coming of spring in September, two similar models and one big fun challenge for filet crochet expert(a)s. Have fun !
I’m a knitter who learned to crochet only a couple of years ago. I love the way crochet complements knitting, so I often combine the two crafts in my creations.

In addition to my favourite colour blue, I also like white on white or black & white combinations, especially in the summer. I love the simple elegance of these two lace patterns, and I mean simple compared to most boho DIY models.
