Bicolor

(Crochet  & Knit)

I had a crazy idea to mix crochet and knitting to make a cotton top. It was a bit of a risk, but I am happy that it worked out…
Tuve una idea loca de combinar ganchillo con tejido a dos agujas para hacer una blusa de algodón. Implicaba un riesgo, pero me alegra decir que funcionó…







This top is made from the top down.  First, I started with crochet motifs for the top part. I used double fine thread in color cream, with a 4 mm hook. Then I transitioned into the blue cotton. A row in crochet, and then casted into the knitting needles (5mm). From there it was just knitting on the round until I reached the desired length, closing with a rib stitch.  Sometimes it works to take risks!

Esta blusa está hecha de arriba para abajo. Primero comencé con unas aplicaciones en ganchillo, usando doble hilo crema (gancho 4mm). Luego hice la transición a un algodón azul, con una pasada en ganchillo y luego montando el tejido a unas agujas de tejer (5mm). El resto lo tejí en redondo con puntada derecha, y el borde final en resorte 3x3. A veces vale la pena tomar riesgos, ¿no les parece?
