Crochet Summer Top – Shield Maiden Garment

Hello one and all! I have finally decided to upload my first ever garment pattern! The pattern is finished for a size Small and Medium. I apologize that there is no size large as of yet but I am still doing some testing for the size large, namely to make sure the stitch count is accurate. I also want to test this pattern in a dk weight yarn and different yarn blends to provide some options that suit everybody’s’ tastes. And of course I want to write the pattern in Spanish, I guess I just really need to make this crafty life a true life and quit my day job :D.

I had quite a lot of fun making this pattern up, I experimented with a lot of different open and lacey stitch variations before settling on the one that I included in this pattern. In the pattern you will find, detailed instructions for the stitch used as well as  a chart and pictures for reference.

The pattern is constructed by making a front and back and then seaming it together on the sides. Sleeves are added on and et voila! a garment is produced.

I hope you enjoy this pattern and if you make it, please tag me on Instagram and use the #crochetcakespodcast to share with the community as well!


P.S once the instructions for the large are all written up then I will upload it to this blog post.
