Sea Spray Bohemian Top - Crochet Pattern


Get lost in the mystery and tranquility of the ocean with the whimsical Sea Spray Bohemian Top... As you admire the vastness of the horizon with the sun gently slipping behind the rolling clouds, throw this extra layer over your favourite sundress, helping to bring a touch of warmth to your cool shoulders. From the lightweight design to the delicate nature of this versatile top, this stylish piece ticks all the right boxes!


Can't you just picture this boho top being worn on a trip to the seaside, as you inhale the sharp, salty smell of the air. For this delicate design I knew I wanted to work it up in a light cotton with an airy stitch, helping to make this piece as soft and flow-y as an ocean breeze.

While on the hunt for the perfect yarn, We Are Knitters reached out and it wasn't long before we teamed up on this fun design as for the longest time I've been obsessed with the smoothness of their pima cotton yarn! If you've never heard of them before you must be living under a rock as they have a massive selection of the most beautiful fibres, kits and patterns ("The Wool" being a fave of mine)!.. Something for everyone, whether you're an absolute newbie or a crochet veteran. They've just celebrated their 6th year together, and it's easy to see why they've been so successful as practically every crocheter or knitter has their yarns on their Christmas wish-list this year!


When I first spotted their pima cotton in this beautiful hue, I could already feel my toes curling in the sand, and the warmth of my sun-kissed cheeks... Without any hesitation I knew it was the perfect fit for this boho top!

The great thing about this pattern is that the construction is pretty simple, and the overall design uses a lot of repeats helping you to enjoy a peaceful, and stress-free crochet experience...

The Olivine Ruana - Crochet Pattern


The hurrying rustle of crisp leaves being blown along a cobbled street; The unmistakable sounds of autumn are in the air. As we nod farewell to warmer weather, we happily welcome cozy sweaters, caramel apples and pumpkin picking with open arms!

As you skip between neatly raked piles of golden leaves, envelope yourself in the snuggly warmth of The Olivine Ruana, an over-sized layering piece that comfortably drapes over any ensemble. From the dramatic style to the detailed forest-like design, this poncho will conjure up memories of wilderness getaways to a cozy log cabin nestled in amongst the trees.



Tassels add a finishing touch of modern elegance to this already trendy look, making it a versatile piece to pair with boots and jeans, or draped as a blanket around your shoulders as you snuggle around the bonfire on a crisp autumn evening...

With towering pines in mind and the idea of creating a wrap not only full of movement but also soft and cosy enough to snuggle in, I knew I wanted to use a lofty wool blend, knowing very well that the warmth of this ruana would quickly make it a staple in any autumn wardrobe!

I absolutely loved the lush yet dense quality of my Spiced Pear Beanie, so I chose to work with the same Lion's Pride Woolspun yarn by Lion Brand... Chunky, warm and still somehow manages to stay soft and flowy when crocheted up - The perfect fit for this oversized design! 


I've labeled this pattern as easy because of the intricate stitch design, but I think an ambitious beginner may be able to tackle this one as I've also included a ton of how-to photos to help make the learning process all the more easy and enjoyable. Ready to dive into this pattern?
