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

Thank You! Very nice stitch pattern. Is there a tutorial/pattern for the shawl on the dress form behind you!? Id love to make it as well!

Great video tutorial. It was very easy to see what she was doing and she explained it very well. Videos always help and I always appreciate a video to go along with a written pattern. I am a very visual crocheter and learn a lot by watching what others are doing.

Really love this versatile stitch design! Our teenage daughter, new to crocheting, has just begun to make a throw using this stitch so thank you so much for the pattern. I am mulling over an idea for a shawl for the upcoming winter here in South Africa so we are really putting this Simple Lace Summer Top Stitch into practice
