Did you have a good weekend? The weather here wasn't so good but that gave me the opportunity to concentrate on watching some TV whilst indulging in a spot of crochet.
Today I want to show you a new crochet top I made over the last four days.
Here is my Funky Crochet Top

I made it from Lana Grosse Allegro, a colour changing yarn (58 Viscose, 42 Cotton). I believe this yarn might be discontinued. I only managed to get 8 x50g , so I wasn't sure it would stretch to making a top, but I was giving it a go. I normally like my tops and jumpers loose fitting, but this one would be a close fitting one.
When I saw all the colours, I felt instantly transported back to the Seventies!!!
There are shades of purple, ochre/gold, brown, coral red and petrol blue. All colours I love!!! Especially when they are combined like this!
I started by crocheting a granny square and just kept going! I made it to 25 rounds.

I test stitched them together with some scrap yarn to see if it would fit ok. It did. As I still had a bit of yarn left, I decided to add 3 extra side rows (on both sides of the front panel) and 2 extra rows at either side of the front neckline. That was as much as I could add. You can see it here on the left.
Luckily there was enough yarn to sew the halves together.

Hope you all have a great week!!! I leave you with more colour...
