Keira Filet Crochet Top -pattern release

The Keira Top is made in the filet crochet technique. 
used 200 gr of Alize Diva (silky effect- Beige/167) which is lace yarn, so to acquire thickness and make it a DK size, I doubled the yarn to make this top. If you don’t want to work with doubled yarn, I recommend using Alize Diva Plus or any DK yarn and a 4mm hook (US G-6 / UK 8).

Content of yarn: 100% Microfiber Acrylic. Skeins come in 100 gr– 3.52Oz, in 350 mt-383 yds. You will need about 200 grams for this top. When finished, the top has a nice stretch.

Gauge: 8 cm / 3.14” of double crochet work measured in center of first row

Used terms in American terminology: chain (ch), chain space (ch-sp), slip stitch (sl st.), skip (sk), double crochet (dc), 3-ch picot, 4-dc bobble stitch

Other: tapestry needle for weaving in ends.

Length of finished top/ tube without ties for the model in the pictures: 38 cm (14.96”) across 22 cm (8.66”) down. Ties: each is 34 cm (13.38”) long and 3.5 (1.37”) wide.
Fit size: The top is worked as a tube, so work / repeat the given pattern until you can wrap and close the tube around your bust. Further instructions below. Model’s size in the photos: S 
The pattern is in my etsy, ravelry and payhip shops.

Breath-taking. What a beautiful top. Love the taupe paired with the black. I used to think black with black, brown with brown and never the two shall meet. But I love brown and black now. Gray and brown, taupe and black. So glad some of the matchy-matchy rules I grew up with have been cast to the wayside. You are so talented!!

Thank you darling! I try to get out of my color comfort zone and experiment with colors I usually don't match or think go together.
