Watch “Crochet Bikini Top |Part1||Lina Suon” on YouTube

OK, so I was looking for a cute summer top to make for my summer crochet line. I found this video on YouTube, and I couldn’t get it to look like the one in the picture. I consider myself a crochet expert but the instructions on the video just didn’t work for me. This is a two part video and I found my top going left on part two. The video has a lot of likes and it appears that others have been able to create a top that they are satisfied with. That was not the case for me. I am sharing the video and hope my fellow crocheters find it helpful. I haven’t decided if I am going to take another stab at it yet but if anyone does please let me know how it turns out for you. I think maybe I work better with written patterns. Godspeed!


Skein 21

Traveling today and finally finished skein 21. It is the beginning of an adult sized mermaidtale afghan. I didn’t want to buy a pattern so I am tweaking the instructions from .

I am hopeful that my end result will turn out ok, since I have frogged this twice so far.  Unfortunately I didn’t bring enough yarn to finish it this trip so it may be a couple of weeks before I can post the end result. I am using the crocodile stitch to give it a scaly affect. That stitch uses quite a bit of yarn but it also extends your work time. If it comes out as I have envisioned it is going to be beautiful.
