A bit wacky, a lot retro and yet something about it I really like! This MIU MIU Crochet Top is beckoning for me to make one! Who’s with me?
Leave it to MIU MIU to take a potentially tacky (yes, you have to be careful how you wear it) granny square and make it chic. It looks super comfy and at $1490 (yes, you read that right!) way out of my price range, but I figure we can make it for around $20ish, depending on your yarn.
Even one of my fave fashion bloggers Jane from Sea of Shoes is rockin’ a vintage top she found in the top left image.Images 2,3,4,5 are from MIU MIU Resort 2015, make this vintage one here.
I’m glad there is a pattern, but I still think it needs some tweaking. I’m going to get my supplies together and start on my own. I’ll share updates and, if I can get it right, I’ll share my pattern.
If you remember last week in my post about CHA the Lion Brand Fashion Show they were showing a lot of granny squares. They are definitely having their moment again.
Let me know if you’ll be making this top.
None of the photos in this post are my own. I have tried to find the original source where possible. If one of these photos is yours and I have not given it proper credit please let me know. xoxo Cathy
Hello, I’m sort of new to crocheting and saw these tops and was interested in making one! Could I have the pattern you are using?!
I’ve found 2 patterns for this top. This one http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/granny-motif-vest and this one http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L40649.html?noImages=
I’m waiting for my yarn to arrive and I will be making my own and sharing it on the blog. I plan on using these patterns for the basics and altering them a bit for fit. I will be posting about this as I go along, but feel free to ask me any questions if I can help.
Thanks so much! Ready to get creative I don’t know how it will go but it’s just an experiment! Holly
Thank you perhaps someday I’ll give it try…
