First, let me give a big shout out to my pattern testers.  They all did a wonderful job and they were able to recreate my vision.  This was my first pattern that I actually spent some time with trying to get it right.  I made it during the summer and it took me this long to get it tested.  I was a little apprehensive and nervous but I took the plunge and I’m glad I did.

With anything new, you learn from trial and error.  My next top will have foundation crochet as it was suggested.  The pattern was written and crocheted before the suggestion and I couldn’t grasp my mind around the new addition since I didn’t start it out that way.  But I’m determined to figure it out for the next time.  There’s nothing like a challenge. 🙂

Here are some of the tops from the Crochet Styles 4U Pattern Testers.  More will be added as they finish them.

Pretty smile and good job on the top.

I’m thinking of making a few  changes before I actually post the pattern after wearing a similar top today posted below.

Stay tuned there’s more to come.

Happy Hooking!

I started crocheting again after many years. Back then when I thought of the word crochet a granny square comes to mind first. No one was wearing crocheted clothes and the fad of crocheting died. I picked up a hook and some yarn and I was on my way. No more granny square blankets for me. Thanks to the internet you can learn anything you want and if you search just a little bit further you will find people who share your passion. I immediately I became enthralled in Pinterest, Ravelry and Facebook crochet groups. If I ran into a snag there was YouTube, I can learn a new stitch from a live person. So two years later here I am, a certified crochet addict and lover of yarn.

If you are a die hard crocheter you will understand. I have so many WIP’s going on at one time until I confuse myself. The attack of the yarn has made it to my home. Yarn has found it’s way from my computer room, bedroom, and now it rests in the family room. Pretty funny having my son’s friends over and they are moving yarn to sit down and I provide the entertainment of showing them my finished work. I think that’s the real reason why they want to come by so much.

To combat the many unfinished projects I decided to keep an online presence of what I do, make and find on the web.
