Patterns that use truboo yarn to its best advantage
Truboo is a unique yarn that is soft and elegant. It can droop if the stitches aren’t right. Here are some great truboo yarn crochet patterns suited to this gorgeous bamboo yarn.
I work with this yarn quite a bit and not only wrote a review of truboo yarn, I also have designed patterns with it to prevent droop but still get the elegant drape bamboo yarn does best.

Crochet Mesh Tunic using Truboo yarn
This pattern is designed to prevent droop while giving an open airy feel. Often lacy looking stitches are prone to drooping with silky yarns but this design prevents that.
A side vent is worked in so it doesn’t bunch around the hips when sitting.
You can enjoy the soft feel of the bamboo yarn against your skin with a garment that holds its shape beautifully.

A crochet cape using truboo yarn
This design is a versatile garment topper that you will get a lot of use from. The dreamy soft feel of truboo yarn surrounding you like a gentle cloud is my idea of a great crochet project.
This is something you can reach for when the air conditioner feels cool on your shoulders, temp changes when traveling on airplanes and when in movie theaters for all those summer blockbusters.

Crochet truboo tank top pattern
While the stitches in this pattern are meant to have some drape, the straps will hold fast and not droop. The drapey stitch pattern will show curves tastefully and if you choose to make a two tone tank as shown is even more eye catching.
Try it as a crop, mid length or more of a tunic as shown here. It is a a bit of hybrid between a regular neck and halter to give a fresh modern look.
