FULL VIDEO TUTORIAL
I won’t go into too much detail about the actual magazine since we have an awesomely gorgeous website for you to check out, but I did want to give you the highlights.
A big thank you to our friends at WeCrochet. We have only used their yarn since the beginning, and it continues to be the yarn I reach for first!
For the Spring 2021 digital issue, we felt like warming things up. After spending so much time indoors, and at home, we felt like a virtual tropical vacation was what we needed!
On that note, we pulled a palette of lush greens, and hot pinks. Like a gorgeous hibiscus!
Galileo Sport Yarn
For the Bredele Vest crochet pattern, I decided to try Swish Worsted from WeCrochet.
This yarn is a 100% Fine Superwash Merino Wool. This worsted yarn comes in 110 yard/ 50 g skeins and is available in 47 different colors! I’m thinking my next order might include some Haze Heather, or maybe Nutmeg Heather!
Swish is made using a high grade Merino wool (20.5 microns), meaning this machine-washable yarn is super soft. Like, next to skin soft. The best part? Your finished piece can be machine washed and will come out even softer than before!
WeCrochet Notes: For best machine wash results, turn the garment inside out and wash in cold water on a delicate cycle. You may want to wash projects made from darker colors by themselves for the first few washes in case the yarn bleeds a bit.
Our friends at Furls Crochet have done it again! We have been so grateful to partner with them for each issue as well. We used the Odyssey crochet hooks when creating our Spring designs.
Also, how can we have a tropical staycation themed issue and not use these saturated colors?
This is what you’ve been waiting for, right? For the Spring 2021 digital issue, we have 7 stunning designs for you. The Baham Blouse by Breann Maudlin, the Riviera Tee by Pamela Stark, the Bay Breeze Cocktail Dress by Lorene Eppolite, the Bora Bora Sleevless Cardigan by Michelle Moore, the Key Largo Top by Briana Kepner, the Tobago Sun Dress by April Gopwani, and the Verona Tee by Hannah Cross.
My Design – Riviera Tee Crochet Pattern
I designed the Riviera Tee with Galileo yarn in the color Calliope.
The Riviera Tee is a loose, drapey tee that doesn’t skimp on style. The gorgeous leaf pattern on the yoke reminds me of a breezy day on the coast.
The construction of this tee is super simple too. First, begin with the yoke. Working from one side to the other, you will stop the pattern repeat when you have reached your desired width. Next, turn, and work a simple dc stitch until you reach your final length. Repeat this for a second panel and seam together. Finally, work some simple cuffs around the arm opening, and you are done! The best part of the design is how little you need to really think about it while crocheting. It is astonishingly easy to customize, and so much fun to wear!
Are you a fan of Mommy and Me sets? I have also written a pattern for child sizes 2-10! Check it out on my daughter below.
