Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This little cover up is so darn cute. I like to wear this that hide flaws I have lol. The pattern has been corrected which caused it to get a lot of negatives. It is always a good idea to completely read the comments and then check the pattern out to make sure you see that it has been fixed. This pattern would be nice in blacks, whites oh heck what color wouldn't it look great in?

By simply looking at the pattern with a well-written text and clear diagram, I am tempted to make this project in time for summer. This Sunkissed Lace Cover up in yellow is perfect to wear over a one piece or a two-piece swim wear in black or in multicolors. It is so refreshing to the eyes, you want to wear it to the beach to show it off to beach goers. This tunic style top is perfect as over blouse. Those who want to do this project may want to do this in other vibrant colors or in multicolored yarn. White would also look good for this top. Cheers!

A bright and happy shade of yellow. Yellow is one color that is missing from my wardrobe. It looks very nice with her hair color also. I had that color of hair but changed it back to blonde because my clothes didnt match and looked so awkward. She rocks the two together though. Love the look of this cover up.

I loved this as soon as I saw it and then I saw complaints in the comments about the pattern being incorrect. I decided to trust Julia that the problems had been corrected so I made it for my daughter and am happy to say that I had no problems at all! It was really simple to follow, apart from me not reading the pattern correctly, lol! Sadly my laptop has a major issue uploading photos but it really is not that difficult to make. Enjoy!

Honestly I never do any RedHeart Patterns anymore no one there cares whether or not these patterns are correct/correctable any more! Just like this site, They Can't answer those the correcting questions! Terrible just terrible... I have tried this pattern before, it is not any better or never been corrected since the RedHeart site posted it when it was new!

Hi Melissasea22, I'm sorry you were having trouble with Red Heart patterns previously. I just went back to the company website, and it looks like there's a newer/updated version of this pattern there. I went ahead and edited this page to match the Red Heart page exactly, so this is now the most current version. If you can let me know where you're having trouble as you work through this pattern, I can maybe try and help out - or, you can pose a question to our Facebook community (Facebook.com/allfreecrochet) to see if anyone has any insight. Good luck, and I hope this helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Wow. This is perfect for summer. Very elegant cover for a 2-pc or one-pc swimsuit, a tee shirt or tank top. The color is very appropriate. You can also make this in colors that you like. Thanks for having the pattern right in front.

Plz can you send me a corrected pattern of sunkissed....thanks much.

I am sorry but they really can't, the pattern was flawed since day 1, it is RedHearts pattern they never corrected it to this day.

Why do the right front and left front not look the same? I've crocheted the 1st four pieces and am ready to put them together, but I am confused. Please help!

I've figured it out. Instructions are wrong. Row 9 for left front should only have 5 V-stitches, not 9.

For the left back it says repeat rows 13 and 14 for large size but there is no row 13 and 14. What should I do?

I'm trying to make this and everything was going fine until I started making the right back and I'm not sure what to do. It says to work same as left back but adds through row 5. I really want to finish this project so any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for all the free patterns!
