Summertime Crochet Shell!


So I finally finished the cute tank top I have been working on!  It turned out better than I imagined it would!  Usually when I make myself a garment it doesn’t fit as well as this one does… I made a couple adjustments to the pattern, but this is a super simple, quick pattern if you are looking for something to make for yourself this summer!  It is on Ravelry for a free download, by Kim Guzman… Shell Shell is the name of the pattern…Click here to check it out.  I made mine using a Black Cotton Yarn from Knit Picks!  It is a little hard to see the details in the picture, but it is really cute… I am going to buy some bright Cami’s to where under it so it shows off the pattern!  Tell me what you think!!!



I added some extra rows to the shoulder area and finished all the edges with a reverse sc, those were the only changes needed to make it to my taste!… This is a size small…

Not the best quality picture,,, But it is really a comfy cute Shell!


I am about halfway done with my next True Colors Afghan for my Etsy Shop… I will post the pictures when it’s done…  Summer seems to be a slower time for crochet… But I still do a couple of hours each evening!


So here is to my New Shell and Summer Crochet!


Find me on Facebook and check out my items on Etsy,,, I will be adding more tomorrow!


Spirals and Baskets…


I’m kicking off my summer stock up of crochet to sell with a bang.  With Memorial Day Weekend sneaking up quickly and my Ocean Waves Afghan completed, I am beginning to stock up and crochet as much as possible to have plenty to sell at Alpine Originals.  It is a true blessing to have an outlet to sell my items and the extra money will come in handy for our Annual Mother/daughter School Clothes and Mini Vacation  trip late summer!


My head was full of ideas and things I wanted to make, so here is what I made last night…

Small Door Handle Baskets…

Spiral Dishcloths….


These adorable baskets are just the right size  for storing the little things you need as you’re rushing out the door… I was inspired by several pattern I found online and each one took only 45 minutes to whip up using 2 strands of worsted weight yarn and an I hook!


The spiral dish cloths are much cuter in person and were originally inspired by a pot holder pattern, but once I got going I thought they would make a unique dishcloth!  They were a little more work but only about 1 hour and done… These are made of cotton using a G Hook…


twine basket

Floral Face Cloths and a Sweet Twine Basket…. Thanks to Carlee at Alpine Originals for this cute picture!


I added a few more Floral Face Cloths in Spring Green and Cream and a great Twine Basket with a Spring Green trim…  I made these last week and forgot to show them off : )


Lots more on the way to share, and a couple new free patterns on the way!


So here is to Baskets, Spirals and Summer Crochet!
