Crop Top Triptych

The Yellow and Blue series

I have finished my modern triptych of shaggy crop tops. Here they all are in a little collection for your perusal! These are the first long-sleeved, fringed, shaggy and crocheted wearable anything I ever created. I found a couple of big spools of yellow and blue wool from the craft section of a Save the Children op shop, and there was enough material to crack out three of these beauties!

There’s a long sleeved supercrop, a waist-length bolero-style cardigan with ties and a fringed poncho that heavily utilises the granny square treble crochet concept to form the chest and sleeves. That one also has wings!


I have been making shags for nearly ten years, I started out with fairy-ring rugs and wall hangings. Go back in the way way back machine (…all the way back in 2011) and see how long I have been in love with reusing textiles.

Have a look at the I, Of Providence Depop shopfront if you’d like something one-off and wearable!

Thanks for your support. If you like what you see, and would like to see more, you can help support the creation of more low-impact, ethical and slow fashion here.
