This a top inspired by Frida Kahlo. I used the mash front of it as canvas to add the flowers and turn this into a joyful bohemian piece.
This top is made by working the front-mesh side first, and then the back. They are not done separately, but after the front is crocheted, we continue by working the back. The pattern given in the pattern fits a size XS/S. However, by following the given instructions, you can make this a custom top per your own measurements.

Before I share the pattern, please note that: The written pattern in its entirety along with the photos are for personal use only. All property rights belong to Maya Kuzman of The Little Treasures.
Yarn and hook: sport yarn of your choice and colors (I love working with Phil Cotton #3 and Tango) and a 1.9 mm hook (UK4) (US 6). Note that you can use whatever yarn size/ weight (and relevant hook for that weight ) you like/have at hand. That will only influence the size of your flowers. Hence, smaller weights will yield tinier flowers, heavier weights will yield bigger flowers.
Stitches (American terminology): chain (ch), chain space (ch-sp), slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc), half double crochet (hdc), double crochet (dc).
Other: tapestry needle for weaving ends, sewing needle for sewing the ring, and scissors.

Being on the beach all day long is all I wish once summer heat devours us. Hubs and I share a common dream of a small cottage house on the beach, where we could unwind and relax, swim and snorkel, take long walks on the beach, stare at the sea, read books and crochet - this one is just for me, because I haven't taught him how to crochet, yet! :)
Since we are going on holiday in early September (and that's like a month from now), to alleviate the unbearable and scorching heat, I made this sea necklace. Needless to say, it brightens my mood instantly.
How are you coping with summer heat?
