Granny square crop top

Greyscale granny stitch super cropped top

In grey this time, a treble stitch crop top! It utilises the basic idea of a granny square, blown up and developed to be worked around the body. I really enjoy making patterns!

It is super short, but with long sleeves. I have tried to put a lot of thought into the pattern and make it with useful features for the wearer. It is so short, because I want the wearer to be able to keep their organs cool after they get too hot from dancing, but the long sleeves are to keep the nighttime chill off their arms, back and shoulders.

I made the hood extremely large – for dreadlocked hairstyles, or hairstyles with giant pieces installed – flowers, horns, crowns, whatever! If the hood is not up it can be pulled back and over the shoulders in the style of a shawl.

There’s a tassel at the end of the hood, that is because I like tassels, making them and putting them onto my work makes me happy. The fringes are there to look and feel good! And give the crop top a liiiiiiiiiiittle bit more length, at least to cover the nipples!

I have been busy over autumn and spring, and I am running out of room in my tiny studio! Apologies for the confusing mass of wool in the photo above, but I am also not sorry. My whole life is a confusing mass of wool all the time, it’s just reality.

Here is a couple of pictures where you can see the hood in action;


I have been making a lot of wearable art over the last year. I have a store on Depop if you are interested in acquiring a one-of-a-kind piece of art that you can also wear. Every stitch, every thread of fringe is imbued with love! I pour my heart into every design and I make my own patterns, there are no repeats…

If you can assist my creative processes with a few dollars here and there, I also have a PayPal page. Every penny received goes straight back into the creation of beautiful and truly unique objects, and I cannot say thank you enough for your love and support!

You can also contact me directly if you have an idea for a commission. I enjoy hearing from people that like what I do!
