Crocheted Top
I crocheted this top for my Mom last summer, but I forgot to take a picture. Finally got a chance and thought I would post it. This top was really easy, it's hard to see but it is a v-neck. The motifs are easy and are joined as you go so you aren't sitting there with a pile of motifs in the end trying to piece them together. My only complaint is that I didn't use the yarn/thread they suggested and used one of the Aunt Lydia's cotton threads, so it is heavier than I would have liked. Learned my lesson with this and a crocheted baby dress I did in the same. THE WEIGHT of the yarn matters! LOL. This top looks pretty with a cami underneath. Once I got that hang of the motif it took no time to do, I may try it again with the right yarn. Now what did I do with that pattern???

CDBear - I found it! It is actually a Leisure Arts design booklet called "Crochet Tops to Love" it has a #3806 over UPC code, I don't know if that helps, they also list a website www.leisurearts.com. There are five designs, this one is on the back! Good luck!

What a pretty top! What kind of yarn did they suggest? The cotton looks great.

The pattern called for Lion Brand Microspun which is a nice light weight yarn that comes in really great bright colors. I just used what I had that was the same weight.
