Crochet Halter

Looking around the mall the other day, I seen lots of different style halters, but what struck me was that most of them were crochet. My mind started spinning. "Could I pull this off?" I didnt really give it much more thought after that. Until...

My daughter asked if I can crochet her a halter for the beach. "Oh I dont think so. Ill try, but hmmm, I really doubt it".

I began searching online for a crochet halter pattern. I found a simple one to try. I went out to buy some yarn. My daughter wanted one made with cotton yarn but I bought some cheap acrylic to practice with. As simple as it looked (basically just a triangle) I just couldnt do it without her here to measure as I went along. I text her and told her "sorry but I just cant make one" Ill have to stick with baby hats and coffee cozys.

Then a thought struck. I seen a photo online that gave me an idea. "A Granny Square Halter". It was cute but had no pattern. How hard can this be? First I had to learn how to make a granny square and I did find instructions for that. Made five, sewed them together and added fringe.

Wah lah!.....    
              

I did it!


Its not perfect but its not too bad being my first attempt if I should say so myself.
Im quite proud of this piece.
Im going to let my daughter have it as a trial. Maybe she will like it, maybe not. If she likes it, then I may go out and buy some cotton yarn and whip up another one for her. If she doesnt like it, then I only wasted a few dollars but gained some confidence.

UPDATE: Though its not real Dad approved, my daughter wears it alot!

  1. You made me smile. "I'll whip one up!" I have heard my mama and older sister say that so many times, and they could. To me is sounded really off handed (That is simple) None of it looks simple to me.!
    It is very pretty, your daughter will Love it.

  2. Win, win. And possibly/probably (if your daughter likes it win, win, win.
    However, it is probably a good idea to test what happens to the shape if it gets wet. Does it recover?

    1. Its machine washable. It should hold shape but yikes I really dont know. Haha. I doubt it will go in the water, but just for beach cruising.
