There is nothing I’d rather crochet for than a music festival. Almost all of my pieces, were made with them in mind! For me, nothing compares to strutting your stuff on the dance floor, while rockin an original design. Not to mention, the countless friendships that were started by complimenting cute clothes… haha
I have always been an outfit planner. But learning to crochet, allowed me to go from planing, to designing! Details like, How will this look when I dance? What artists am I going to see? Will this material be comfortable all day? Can I pee easily in this outfit? & How much time do I really have?” are all questions that cross my mind when working on a #FestivalCrochet project.
As Festival Season begins, I wan’t to help you create the perfect outfit. With my easy to follow patterns, you’ll be able to make your own crochet pieces in time for your favorite event!
Don’t know how to crochet? You’ll find directions for every stitch you’ll need in my Crochet Basics Tutorial. I also offer private lessons & teach Crochet Workshops if you prefer hands on instruction! Catch me crocheting at Lucidity Festival this April .If you are anything like me, you’ll wait as long as possible to get started. So, this first pattern is quick, easy, & versatile. I’m calling it the No Pressure Top. Designed for CRSSDfest, the name is an ode to my favorite song of the weekend, Piece of Me by MK. I am hoping you’ll have no pain, just pleasure with this project. ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ The No Pressure Top Pattern is now available on my Etsy!
For festivals, I love using a stretchy yarn! My product of choice has been HiKoo CoBaSi Plus. This cotton, bamboo, & silk blend is my favorite for all day wear. The pattern will also work great with Shiny Happy Cotton, Lily Sugar ‘N Cream, or any worsted weight yarn.
