Girls Cap Sleeved Spring Top
I can't believe I knit this top so quickly. Granted, I've been laid up for a couple days, but still, this one was a quick, enjoyable knit. Plus, and here's the best part, I got to use up lots of yarn left over from other projects. I used TLC cotton/acrylic for the collar and white stripes, kitchen cotton for the colored stripes and Lion Brand Cotton Ease for the body. It's quite soft and shouldn't be very hot to wear even in the summer. I'd like to make her a tiered skirt to match. She was disappointed that it wasn't done, yet!
If you'd like the pattern you can go to: http://soulfulhuesknitsblogspot.com. Along with this free pattern, her blog is very enjoyable. Oh, and I increased the stitches to 90 instead of 80 and adjusted the pattern accordingly. The chest measurement on the pattern was for a 19" but Caressa is a 20". The adjustments worked out just fine.
