Summer Solstice Top
The Summer Solstice top is a lightweight cotton geometric summer top which can be worn two ways - with the long side at the front or back. Use as over a bikini on the beach or pair it with a pair of light trousers, shorts or a summer skirt to enjoy the hazy crazy days of mid-summer!
This is a fairly easy pattern, mostly using double crochet and chain stitches with simple increases and decreases.
The top is worked in two pieces from side to side and joined at the centre with the neckline, hem and sleeve cuffs added afterwards.
If you’re a wanting to make a simple, quick summer garment pattern then this could be what you’re looking for!
The pattern is written in US terms and includes written instructions, a pattern chart, photo guides and constructuion shcmeatics.
I reccomend an Aran weight cotton yarn for this top. The item pictured uses Drops Paris but Paintbox Aran cotton or Lily Sugar n Cream could work too. Check your gauge!!
