Sheer crochet top featuring a sweet open-work design. The top is perfect for layering – pair it with tight-fitting tank tops or sweaters, jeans or skirts. Choose cotton yarn, as it allows your skin to breathe, especially if you wear this light top over a bikini. Or make a wool variant and wear it in winter.
The roses are created by filling in a basic mesh pattern with double crochet stitches (in American crochet terms). Filet garments are created with only two stitches: the chain and double crochet. This pattern is easy to follow if you know the filet technique. There are no lengthy instructions like /1 dc, 2 ch, skip 2 ch/ because the filet technique is gridlike and therefore it is not about reading – it’s about crocheting. Grid is the most important thing here.
This tutorial explains how to crochet filet top using small amount of yarn (just 130 grams = 4.6 oz for size S with bust 84-92 cm/33”-36’’). For bigger sizes I explain how to calculate the initial amount of stitches based on your measurements and add more fillet blocks along the sides. For a slight increase use thicker yarn or bigger hook.
Yarn: Fingering / 4 ply / 400 m in 100 gr / 440 yards in 3.5 oz / example . Total yarn usage for size S is 570 yards (520 m).
You will receive:
► filet grid for size S with instructions for calculating the amount of stitches for bigger sizes (all additional stitches are worked along the sides of the top);
► tutorial in ENGLISH of how to work filet patterns, make necessary decreases for the armholes in the fillet technique – it is rather a beginner’s guide;
► row-by-row description for edge pattern.
