Click For Crochet Abbreviations List

Today I want to offer an interesting top made with garter stitch to view. Found it on a paid site. There is no description, but there is little information necessary for a general idea of ​​this model. But, I think, who wants to tie this modelka, can do it on the pictures. 

If you have a little yarn left from previous projects and you do not know where to use them, then this top will be a real find! And the remains are attached, and a stylish and unusual product appeared in the wardrobe. Using the remains of yarn, it is not always possible to get a beautiful and interesting product that will be pleasant to wear. Most often, when looking at such things, it immediately becomes clear that the remnants were used. But not in this top.


This top is knitted by separate details with spokes of threads of two colors. Although due to the different directions of the bands it seems that more colors have been used.

Straight details, a cutout with a boat and a diagonal arrangement of strips will help to hide the flaws of the figure, making you more slender and tall. Details of the top are knitted in three stages, first a piece with straight strips, then a section of diagonal strips and completes all the elastic band.


In general, despite the external complexity, the product knits very easily and even a beginner knitter can cope with it. The top knits with garter stitching, and the stripes alternation after several rows is done automatically.


Therefore, such a product will become a real meditative knitting, which is easy to do under your favorite TV series.


Cotton thread is used for knitting the top, but if it's hard for you to work with clean cotton, it can easily be replaced with cotton with acrylic. The length of the top can be changed to a shorter one (the photo shows a long version), so you can even bind two products for different clothes.


Dimensions 1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6). Dimensions of the finished product: circumference of the bust 92.5 (101.5, 111.5, 122, 132, 141). See the article. The product is created with an increase in the freedom of fitment of 20 cm. The size range is quite large, so even the smart-sized girls will be able to tie such a product.


The model on which the product is shown has a bust of 81 cm, a height of 165 cm and shows the 2nd size of version 1 (long version).


To work on this product you will need the following materials:


Quince & Co Willet (100% cotton, 146 m / 50 g) version 1: 3 (4, 4, 5, 5, 6) of coils of color A and 3 (3, 4, 5, 5, 6) ; version 2: 3 (3, 4, 4, 5, 5) of coils of color A and 2 (3, 3, 4, 4, 5) coils of color B.


Density knitting: 21 p * 36 p = 10 cm stripes garter stitching with spokes 3.75 mm after locking.


Be sure to tie the sample, this will not only save you time, but will also help you decide if the thread you select for this product is suitable.


3.75 mm straight knitting needles and knitting needles that you are used to knit small circumference.


Always take the needles that will give you the right density.
