The crochet muse led a group of us on a path of Convergence. If you are looking for a great experience, give this summer top a try. Yes, there are miles (or yards?) of double crochet, but the opportunity to practice short rows makes it worth the effort.
The only time I forced color was at the top of the shoulders. The back shoulders are both steel blue to grey, but not matchy matchy. The fronts are the bright blue to steel blue shades.
When it came to seaming, I remembered that crochet gets seamed from the wrong side. This pattern of short rows and double crochet makes matching seams so simple. Even without prior blocking of both pieces, it was easy.
So what's next? A blocking and drying and then comes the wearing and comparing my final product to that of the rest of the CAL participants. I know that each will look different. I am positive that each will be perfect!
