This is a very simple pattern, in terms of stitching. Once you get the hang of the mesh stitch, it’s smooth and just flies off the hook! The genius of this pattern is in the actual layout. She does a really cool technique in shaping the shoulders, rather than simply decreasing for the neckline and leaving the sides boxy (which is also a look that I love and do in many of my own designs).

This lovely doily works up in about an hour, and is perfect for scraps. It’s also easy to adjust if you want a larger one, or make a bunch and sew together for a table runner.
This pattern was very easy to follow. The fabric is comprised of simple double crochets and chains, and it’s a basic construction of two identical rectangles sewn together. This a great project for a confident beginner. It will be versatile top that I can see paired with jeans, shorts or over a maxi dress.
This pattern was very easy to follow. The cowl and the body are both in a simple repetitive pattern comprised of easy half double crochets, chains and double crochets, and worked from top down, it makes it very easy to try on as you go to make sure it fits just the way you like. I had trouble meeting gauge, and was able to adjust how I needed to make it fit, but if gauge is met, there is no doubt in my mind that this project wouldn’t be great for a confident beginner.
This pattern was very easy to follow. Don’t let the pattern scare you at all because it’s worked in just simple chains, single crochets and treble crochets. If you can work a double crochet, a treble crochet is just one extra yarn over in the beginning, and one extra yarn over and pull through in the end. It also mentions blocking, but it’s not necessary. I did not block my top, and the fit and stitch pattern is still great. All these things make this a great project for a confident beginner.

If you can work a double crochet, a treble crochet is just one extra yarn over in the beginning, and one extra yarn over and pull through in the end making this a great project for a confident beginner, and a plus – it can be worn two ways.
