  1. I absolutely love, love, love your tops!!! Especially the Vivo top ( as I’m a curvy chic. I love the nice body hugging fit around the busts. ALL these tops are my love to wear ” Go2″ in hot weather. But I have only 1 I found & purchased years ago in a navy & white wide stripe. I will check my yarn stash- but these tops beg to be crochedone in COTTON which I have none & I find it a lil pricey– oh well… As long as I have the patterns I can make then anytime. Thanks – they are SUPERBLY LOVELY, PRACTICAL & A “MUST” for everybody. Amen. Melissa Bailey

  2. I really like some of these summer tops – especially Sea Breeze tank top. I’m curious though why I can’t seem to find, anywhere, summer tops that are crocheted with fine or super fine cotton blends. To crochet a summer top using a worsted or DK weight yarn seems odd, as they would be so much cooler made with a fine or super-fine yarn. If you can find any summer top patterns made with lighter yarn, I would love to see them.
    Thank you, Gail

      @ Gail…. This is an overall idea and I have no expertise in knowing whether it would work or not. It might be possible to utilize whatever weight yarn is desired. Just choose size crochet hook or knitting needles getting closest to the gauge required. If it doesn’t match exactly; I’d shoot for slightly larger than slightly under due to fit. I came up with this idea from a pattern I remember using long ago. (I don’t have the pattern now). It seems feasible, but users would probably need different size hooks or needles already at hand. Any feedback is welcome. Thank you
