Crochet long tunic/ dress in bamboo yarn
My new Summer dress is ready (it's really a long top or tunic). It will be nice to wear over a long sleeved dressed or with a sleeveless top under.
The yarn used is a #2 yarn/thread Bamboo Natural Light Turquoise (100% bamboo, 125m/50gram) and the crochet hook is 3,5 mm. I really, really love this yarn. It soft, shiny, feels like silk and the dress drapes beuatifully. The yarn is rather compact though and a little bit soo slinky sometimes. It's not as easy to crochet with as a normal mercerrized cotton thread, but the result is more elegant because of shine and softness. Bamboo is said to be environmental friendly as well.
I did like this:
The pinealpple pattern is from this cardigan/bolero.
This is how my design sketches look like! Drawn on our daily morning paper.
1. Ananasmotivet = The pineapple pattern
2. Kant för att få rätt bredd på överdelen = Section to get the correct width
3. Oket = the shoulder part.4. Kjolen = The skirt.
The back piece.
