Baby Blaze Peplum Shirt (Crochet Pattern)

_MG_7087

I have recently become hooked on the designs of Doris Chan. I love her crochet philosophy: no seam, join-as-you-go, and yarn-efficient. After making a few designs from her book Convertible Crochet, I was inspired to design a motif-based shirt for my little sister Emma. In a few days, I designed and completed the Blaze Peplum Shirt. The project was yarn efficient, quick to make, and very rewarding, so I decided to share it.

The pattern for the Blaze Peplum shirt (size: 12-months) is now selling on Ravelry and Craftsy.
