Item details

Please note, you will get a pattern, not an actual top.

Merezhka is a crocheted top which takes its name from a Ukrainian traditional embroidery stitch (hem-stitch). This stitch is worked by pulling out strands of thread which are used to create lacy lines in the fabric (merezhki).

A hexagon motif and its variations (partial and pentagon motifs) are used in this design to shape the garment without breaking the spectacular geometric pattern.

The top features a V-neckline, narrow 3/4 sleeves, and a long, intentionally over-sized body.

Yarn: Malabrigo Lace, 100% merino, 470yd (430m) per 50g skein, 4 skeins total
Hook: US B (2.25mm)
Yarn needle to sew/weave in ends
