Summer designs

Hi guys,

Summer is well and truly here and it looks like it is here to stay for a while...

I was browsing through my Ravelry and a couple of summery designs popped up and I thought I might share them with you and maybe inspire you to add a couple of crochet garments to your wardrobe!

The first design is my Shells Summer Sleeveless Top.

It is worked in So Crafty DK yarn which is a seasonal yarn that was available n Aldi stores in UK but there is a few alternatives suggested in the pattern that would work just as well.

You can find the PDF pattern HERE

If you fancy a shopping spree why not visit Deramores online store and choose yarn now!




My second summery design is a pair of these gorgeous Barefoot Sandals!



It is such a quick and easy make but so stylish!

I've decided to share the pattern with you here on my blog for FREE because you guys rock!

If you prefer a tidy PDF file to download you can find it HERE



FINISHED SIZE

I’ve designed these sandals to fit shoe size 5-6 but the length to fit a larger foot is easily adjustable.

The circumference of the ankle part is 27 cm/ 10.5inches.
