Are you celebrating International Crochet Month?
I’m glad I know how to crochet as well as knit since it gives me access to a wider variety of patterns.
Like this beautiful Convergence Top by Linda Skuja.
The pattern is in the Interweave Crochet Spring 2014 issue.
It’s even the cover garment for the magazine!
I was so enchanted, I asked for more pictures to share with you.
The pattern uses Noro Taiyo Sock: #S8, 2 (2, 3, 3, 3) skeins.
Taiyo Sock is a 50% Cotton, 17% Wool, 17% Nylon, 16% Silk blend that is great for warm weather garments.
I’m intrigued by the “movement” in the design. As I suspected, short rows are involved!
The blurb in the magazine says:
This top has figure-flattering converging lines highlighted by a slow-striping yarn. Short rows create the asymmetrical rows in the boy; filet crochet adds interest to the short drop sleeves.
Taiyo Sock comes in a range of colors ranging from pastels to primaries, so you’ll be able to make the top in a color that fits your wardrobe.
The square neckline is lovely, too.
The magazine is due out March 18. In the mean time, add the Convergence Top to your Ravelry queue.
Remember to look for the magazine at your local yarn store so you can pick up the yarn at the same time!
