Salmon Lacy Top


(Crochet)




A lacy top in crochet, made with cotton thread in color salmon.
Una blusa calada hecha en ganchillo con hilo de algodón en color salmón.  




I made this top for my niece.  She saw a knit top in Zara, and later asked me if I could make her something similar. 
Tejí esta blusa para mi sobrina.  Ella vio una blusa tejida en Zara, y me preguntó si podía hacer algo similar. 






I used no pattern, but improvised it.  My niece chose the colour and the stitch pattern, and I set myself to work.  And after trial and error, I am happy to report it fit her like a glove.
No seguí un patrón, sino que lo improvisé.  Mi sobrina escogió el color y la puntada, y yo me puse a trabajar…  Tras prueba y error, me complace informar que le quedó a la medida. 






This top has two unique characteristics: a long tail, and a tie string at the back. 
Esta blusa tiene dos características peculiares: una cola larga, y una cinta que se amarra en la espalda alta.





The salmon colour is so perfect for the summer, as well as the cool cotton. 
El color salmón es perfecto para el verano, al igual que el fresco algodón.





I am glad to say she was satisfied!
Felizmente ella quedó satisfecha.

  4. Lovely Lovely spring colour and the back is great it makes it that bit more special. The filet crochet has lent itself brilliantly to this type of garment.
