Color blocking is all the rage right now so that makes this sweater very stylish! I think I may have a bias but my favorite sweater ever was one styled quite similarly to this one. The cotton/acrylic blend is perfect for my neck of the woods during the summer! I'm thankful that it appears the directions have been updated.

Very versatile is what I'd like to describe this Two-Tone Crochet Top. You can wear this any season of the year. Just this top during the hot summer months and with a thick cardigan, coat or winter clothes during the cold fall and winter months. You can do this in a combination that you want. The possibilities are endless.

Oh such a clever pattern combining crochet and knit all in one gorgeous top! I wanted a single color top, and also because I felt the different patterns in the design did not need different colors, so I made one in black and I absolutely love it! Sadly my PC still has a problem uploading pics but it really is lovely and I am about to make another one in blue.

This top is like nothing I have ever done before. Knitting and crocheting both in the same sweater. I am surprised that I have never thought of this before and seen another pattern that does this before. I am intrigued by this concept. Very ingenious. This pattern could definitely use some pictures though showing a little more in depth instruction.

Hi. Has anyone actually made this top? Would love to but am confused by crochet and knitting in the same pattern which doesn't make sense. Thanks?

A very interesting pattern! Start with crocheting and finish wish knitting. Well I don't know how to knit so this is one I will not be making. I've heard of top patterns that require both techniques and always skip over them. It's a shame too, because I do like this top.. Thanks any ways.

I went directly to Premier Yarns' website and found this pattern. While it's not written exactly like the above pattern, it's still wrong on their website also and has instructions to knit the sleeves?! This pattern should either be corrected or removed.

AFC, please edit/make corrections to this on-line pattern! Everything beyond (Back, Yoke, Front, Finish) is from some other knit pattern. Agreed this is a cute pattern!

Cute but the pattern makes no sense. Cast on? In crochet? Please republish correct pattern.

This pattern is showing instructions for a "left front" when the front is crocheted as a whole, also there are knitting instr. for the sleeves and edging. All of this is after the finishing instructions as follows: Finishing, Left Front, Sleeves, Finishing, Top Edging, Left Front Edging, Right Front Edging. I'm in agreement with "yellah", this appears to be instructions for another pattern, could we please get the rest of the correct instructions for this pattern???

There appears to be a portion of a second pattern included with these instructions. It does appear to be fairly simple and I look forward to trying it out.

Hello Yellah, I think you might be referring to the edging. Let us know if you have any trouble! Jesse, editor at AllFreeCrochet

I agree with Carmill and Yeliah. There appears to be a portion of another pattern. It gives knitting instructions and this is crochet pattern. I'm wanting to make this but I don't understand how the pattern. It has a front and a left front. They both say work as for back. I need help understanding. Thanks.
