One of my inspiration source for my designs is street fashion and it’s amazing that in our days you don’t have to be always in the street to get your inspiration. The internet is full of street fashion photos and ideas. Since I was just a child I was trying , and sometimes with great results, to recreate different garments by recycling some of my mom’s older (or not) clothes. Now i started to do it again and my biggest challenge as a designer is to recreate different fabrics using yarn. That’s why I present you the Sunlight Twisted design, a twisted back sweater crocheted with Katia SeaCell Cotton for Premium Designers.
- Sunlight Twisted crochet pattern available in sizes S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL, 4XL and 5XL.
Twisted back sweater
When I first saw a photo with a twisted back sweater, I immediately saved the photo and put it on my to crochet list. It took me a while to figure it out how to do it and I had to undo several times, but I end up with the Sunlight Twisted sweater, a pretty design and easy pattern. The skill level required to complete this project is intermediate. You have to know how to increase, decrease when working with a lace stitch pattern. But if you are ready to take out the best of you, even if you are a beginner, you can do it! And don’t get intimidated by the twisted back, there are just 2 panels twisted and then stitched together.
Katia SeaCell Cotton
When I had to choose the yarn, I knew it has to be a fine weight; because this is the weight I prefer to work with. I choose Katia SeaCell Cotton because I loved the concept “from sea to skin” and because I was curious about how this yarn will feel like. Choosing the colour was difficult, but I knew that it has to be a light colour. I made this Sunlight Twisted top with the spring and summer sunlight in my mind and this pastel yellow describes perfect what I was thinking about.
