Hello, I'm Roseanna.

Moara Crochet Designs was created when I reached the point of advanced beginner in the crochet world. I started like many of us with quick easy projects such as scarfs, granny square blankets and some amigarumi projects. But then I wanted to push myself and create beautiful crochet clothing.

Over a few years I spent my time searching for the crochet items I wanted to make. I would fall in love with beautiful crochet garments I would find online I’d say to myself, ‘This is me, I need to crochet this!’. I would get very excited thinking of the end result and be happy to invest many hours, days and sometimes even weeks into these projects. Then one of either two things would happen, the pattern was not available, it is just a link to a b... See full profile

Transcripts

1. Introduction: Hi, I'm resenting the artist and designer behind more crochet and design crochet clothes impact is for women and children and also accessories for the whole three my designs, I aim to fill the gap for those of us who progressed beyond beginner level and are ready to try something more challenging and maybe start creating your own crunchy clothing. In this crochet class, I'm going to be sharing with you one of my best selling crochet patterns, my crocheting Italia crop top. One of the reasons this crop top cell so well is I've designed my crop type to have a full of books and less on the side to accommodate the curves of a woman. In this class, I'm going to show you step-by-step how you can make your own crochet cropped up. Start to finish with my easy to follow crochet videos included in this class, there is also a full written photo tutorial which can be accessed from the class. And again, that has step-by-step on how you can create your crochet cropped up. One of the reasons I love this crop top is that it is so versatile. You can wear on the beach or you can wear with shorts or skirts. And you can even wear it in the cooler months and just layer it with a shed. And if you like Apple pizza fabric to the Boston and 10 until vehement crochet dress. So if you're ready to push your crochet skills to the next level, click enroll, and I'll see you in the next video. 2. Materials Crop Top: Make your crochet talk. You're going to need 300 to 400 meters of cotton yarn is a pair of scissors, a 2.5 millimeter crochet hook, a tapestry needle, and some shells are beads of your choice. For this example, I'm going to use in Cook County shell. 3. What is Gauge?: Today we're gonna talk about gauge. Why is it important, what is it, and how you can make your own gauge swatch. Why is gauge important? When I first started to crochet, gage didn't really matter because I'd be making smaller projects such as crochet grainy square, or a small Omega Rumi project that I didn't really need to know what it was. Once I progress on to more advanced crochets, then Gage became important. Why is it important? Because gauge will affect the size of your garments. So it's either going to be three things. Too small, just right, or too big. Gate also has an effect on the fabric of your crochet. It can become too loose or even to tide. Gauge can also affect your amount of yarn. You can either have an abundance of yarn or maybe you get was ND your project and you run out. So what is gage? Gages base liquidity effect? Two things. The amount of stitches and the map of rows over 10 cents meets a square. And that's it. And to make a gauge swatch is really easy. And I want to show you next how you can do this step-by-step. Taking half an hour to make a gauge swatch won't result in your item being the right size. And it is so easy to do and it will save you a lot of heartache along the way. So next video, I'm going to show you how you can make your own gauge swatch. 4. How to Make a Gauge Swatch: To start chain the number of stitches written in your gauge and add 5 or 6, 4 row 1, continue with the stitch indicated in the gauge. So for this example, I'm using double crochet. Continue adding rows into your swatch is 13 to 15 centimeters in height. Fast enough, I'm waving your ends. Now your swatches ready we need to block it. Plays your swatch into a piece of cardboard and painting evenly around. Once this is done, spray with some water and allow it to dry. Once it's dry, remove your pins. Place a ruler on top and measure how many stitches you have over 10 centimeters and then how many rows you have over ten centimeters. Now you have your gate. Gate is too big, reduce your hook size, and if you gauges to small, increase it. 5. Bust Rows 1 & 2: To start, we're going to make a foundation chain of 21. So have the tailing fund and wrap your yarn over your first two fingers to make a cross. Now pick up your hook and put it under the first and pick up your yarn and release your fingers. And as you firstly. So now we're going to make a foundation chain of 21. Now for our first row, we're going to double crochet in the fourth chain from the hook. So here's my first, second that, and here's my fourth. So yeah, ANOVA insight into your stage. Pick up your yarn. Three loops on your hook. Yarn over, two loops, yarn over again. So now we have a chain 3, double crochet. Chain 3 is going to count as your first double crochet. To continue going to add a double crochet into the next 16 stitches. And so you get to the final foundation chain. Here I've reached my final stage. So for this final stage, we're going to add three double crochets into the same stage. So that's my first, my second, and finally my third. And now you're going to chain 2 and add three more double crochet into the same stage. So in total, there will be six double crochet in this same stick. My thirst. My second, I'll finally my third. And the final one we started to make a curve. Now it's complete row warm. We're going to put a double crochet and the other side of the foundation chain. So they will be 18 double crochet in total. So go all the way down. Once you've finished row won, your piece will look like this. So now we're going start row to toe to start, we need to turn our work. And we're going to chain 3.

Now we've reached a chain space at the top here, winds are two double crochet as my first, a second chain 2. And add two more double crochet, all in the same chain space. So the tip of your piece is going to look at this two double crochet chain to two double crochet. And that continue into a 21 double crochet all the way until you reach the end. And I'll meet you at row three. 6. Bust Rows 3 - 8: Here we are after row 2 and I've got 23 crochet on either side. Now for row 3 went chain three again and turn our work.
