Go with the flow – filet beach dress

SimplyCrochet_issue83_FiletDress

‘Fortune favours the bold’, cries the common adage, probably-not-but-maybe referring to those who dare to wear this amazing, showstopping filet beach dress! Its catwalk-esque style, however, is not reflected in the price – the Scheepjes Sugar Rush yarn used here is amazing value – you can hook this tunic up for under £24.

At the beach, throw on this crochet tunic on over a bikini for an instant, quick-dry cover up, or flex your fashion muscles by teaming it with a mini dress. Its geometric filet pattern looks great highlighted by a dark colour, while the green-yellow colour is begging for bright accessories!



To hook up this fantastic pattern, you’ll need:

Scheepjes Maxi Sugar Rush (100% mercerised cotton, 50g/280m) Green-Yellow (245)

A 2mm (US 4 steel) hook

Numerous stitch markers

Ribbon, approx 6mm wide x 1.2m length
