For this top I used one of my favorite cotton yarns – CotLin from WeCrochet! I’ve used this yarn in another cute summer pattern, the Garden Party Top. Some other great DK yarn choices are Kindred (alpaca/cotton blend), Swish DK (superwash merino wool), or Alpaca Cloud (baby alpaca wool).

  1. I tried to click to save on my Pinterest board but that didn’t work….then I tried to see if I could order the PDF but that wasn’t working either……too bad, it’s a cute design.

    1. On round 18 you say “(skipping an entire side, this will be the first sleeve)”

      How do you skip an entire side?
      Do I cut the yarn?

  2. Sorry….after posting my comment I could then save the pattern…..weird but whatever works, I guess. Thanks for the cute pattern.

  3. I’ve lost my cro-jo of late, but this is just the pattern to start me working on something new! Thanks so much!

  4. Simply BEAUTIFUL, Breann! I have made several of your patterns. Love your designs and patter directions! May I ask what size you are wearing above?

  5. I would love to crochet this but can I ask you how you got that very neat seam at the back of your work when you slip stitch at the end of each round?
    I never have any luck and my seams are all wonky going in every which way BUT straight!

  6. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work. If I haven’t said this in the past or if I have, I’d like to also thank you for your easy to follow teaching methods. I recently made one of your cardigans and you made it seem easy. Thank you.

  7. This pattern is lovely, I do have a question in regards to yarn weight. I have 2 weight cotton yarn, would that work for this or would I have to double it up?

  8. Hi, I have just started the Bahama blouse free pattern . Can you confirm row three is 2esc +2ch+2esc ?if so then I think your stitch count is wrong?.Im doing size small 72 st for row 1+2 then adding for row 3, 4st x4 st for corners not inc 2ch = 74 + 16= 90 ?
    So row 4 is 90 st plus 2st 2ch corners , not inc 2 ch = 90 plus 8 = 98
    Is this correct please?

    1. Hi! Yes, row 3 is correct. You are only adding 8 stitches (2 per corner) from round 2 to round 3. When placing 2 sc in one stitch in round 3, you are only adding 1 more, not 2 🙂
