Hooked on crochet

By emy Monday, May 24, 2010
I know that's a lame title but that's the situation that Edith found herself to be in.

For the last few projects she worked on, they are in fact all crocheting. But Edith is getting speedier with her project work. Much of it has to do with her coming for lessons regularly.

In fact, we're meeting on a weekly basis of late.

This is an interesting piece that she started late April.

Can you figure out what it is?

If you have figured out that this is part of a garment, you are half right.

More specifically, this is a top down raglan style bodice.

When Edith originally brought this pattern along, it took us a while to figure how the garment would be constructed. After all, the pattern showed a cute little gal wearing this assemble of crocheted bodice with a fabric skirt.

The instructions are all written. [There isn't a lot of charted crochet patterns unless you look into Japanese magazines.] And with no schematics. That really bothers me sometimes as it's hard to visualize the measurements on all aspects and that's critical to pattern modification work that we often embark on.

So I walked her through the pattern and drew up the diagrammatic view. I also took time to explain the crochet orientation and shaping concept. Edith took notes so that she can go home and take key measurements of her little gal to ensure proper fitting.

After all, no one wants an FO that can't be worn or is ill-fitting. Now that the bodice is complete, I can't wait to see the final result once she attaches the skirt!
