Vintage Inspired Orangesicle Set

One of my favorite things about crochet is that it has been around for decades. As much as I will try to create something totally original, I will almost always find someone who has done it before.

At first, this kind of discouraged me. I didn’t want anyone to think I was copying them & I sure as heck didn’t want anyone to pass my designs off as their own either. But the more I think about it, the more I can find the beauty in it.

We are all apart of this world, we should let our work bring us closer together, respecting each mind that played a part in its creation.

It is interesting to see how knitting & crocheting have changed over time. How something was made, what patterns were in style, & what colors were popular, all tell a story that is saved in that piece forever.

Hexagons are one of my favorite things to make! These fun shapes can create so many unique & beautiful combinations! Here is one of my first designs using these hexagons!

For this top, I made 10 hexagons! Then I constructed the base of the top & added straps. It has a lace up closure on the back to easily adjust to fit any size.
