Now LIVE: Skysail

Lena's Skysail top pattern, originally published in Crochet Now, Issue 5, is now available in her store on Ravelry as an individual pattern download!



The pattern includes the original instructions, the construction schematic and the charts on pages 6-7.
To customize the size or to accommodate your individual gauge, see Step by Step Formula with pictures on the last pages.


The top construction allows for endless color options done in multiple ways. The only limit is the diagonally-oriented borders of your color blocks, since all rows are worked diagonally.

Choose your most beloved colors and use the blank templates provided as your sketchpad to create your own unique design!

The Little Grey Top

We are excited to introduce a brand new crochet pattern from Yuliya: The Little Grey Top!

Clean, minimal and chic, this simple straight top will take the place of “the little black dress” in your wardrobe.

It will become that ultimate sleeveless top which can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Make it any colour you fancy and add it to your favourite outfits as a third piece and an extra layer of warmth.

The pattern will give you plenty of guidance to make sure you create this top to a high standard of craftsmanship and get those all-important seams and edgings just perfect so you can wear your handmade garment with pride.
