The La Bonita Blouse Crochet Pattern is the perfect comfy, casual top! It’s light, airy, and flattering. It just might be one of my favorite summer top designs. I absolutely love the comfort and ease of this top. The flowy design makes is a great top for some weekend shopping!

I used some of my favorite affordable cotton – I Love this Cotton Yarn. It’s a worsted weight yarn, but because of all the eyelets and the cotton fiber, the top is fairly light. It could also be used a swim suit cover up! How cute would that be?!
