I just happened on this simple lace summer top and went to read the materials list. I am really interested in this Butterfly Mercerized Cotton. I went on line to do a little research. It seems a little pricey and there may be limited colors to select. The hunt is on now the this medium. Could anyone suggest an outlet that this can be purchased?

This simple lace summer top is kind of like a tank top but with a little bit more shoulder coverage. I am liking the open weave of this pattern. I need to get started right away if I would like to have this for this summer as summer is already here.

I am digging the bateau neckline and the cap sleeves here. And LOVE that it is in RED. It is nautical, will leave your body open to feel the air without feeling bulky or heavy, and can do triple duty as a top that you were a tank under, a swim cover-up AND even over a three quarter sleeve tunic when it turns colder outside.

Wow! One for me! I've seen so many of these open weave tunics but not many of them are patterned for larger women! It's also designate "easy" which means I can make it! Thank you for thinking of us and thank you also for including the multiple so we can adjust as needed! I found some gorgeous colors of the yarn. Now, the difficult part is figuring out which one to use!

I love this Simple Lace Summer Top! The color is so bright and Red, LOL. The written pattern is well done and there is a video to help with how to crochet in the back bump of the chain stitch. So this pattern should come out nicely if you just follow the directions as written. I did see a place I had a question on, do you really need to Block both front and back pieces to measurements in schematic before seaming and edging? I mean shouldn't they measure up? I'm not sure? I want mine to have a smaller neck opening, so I'll make the shoulder seams a little longer. Other then that, this is a must have for this summer. Thank you so much for this free crochet pattern.

A cute and simple top to wear over a tee or tube top or even your swimsuit for a cover up to a day of adventure at the beach. The cotton yarn comes in so many colors so selecting the right one looks like it would be more difficult than this pattern. Looks easy to make and easy to understand.
