365 Ways to Wear Crochet: In the Details

Remember when I wore this same blue dress with a crochet shawl last month? At the time I realized that the straps on the dress were too long. I ended up cutting the straps so that instead of going on my shoulders I could just tie them behind my neck. I took Alpaca Suri Ribbon and did a single crochet with it around each of those straps to add some detail to the neck ties. Then I added a bow in front with the same ribbon yarn. Today I’m wearing the newly enhanced dress with my white bobble necklace and my colorful crochet ring.
