  1. First of all, thank you for so nice pattern. Bus I live in Brazil and we don’t have this yarn here. Can you tell which hook you used? So I can choose someone similar. Thank you and sorry my poor English

    1. Hey Leila 🤗
      You can use any cotton/wool yarn that requires a 4 mm crochet hook. I made one cotton and one wool with the same hook size and they have the same dimensions. Good luck 💗

  2. Thanks for the reply to my question. Almost finished and going with the short sleeve. It is looking good. Hoping the top will fit my grand niece. If it is too large she can grow into it. Better to be larger than too small.

  3. Thank you for sharing! I’m so exited to make this in many different sizes for my grandkids. This is something even the teens will like.

  4. Very pretty top. I used yarn i had on hand, so mine would be more of a spring or fall top, red heart unforgettable.

  5. This top is stunning! I was searching for a quick summery top. My hands are itching to start. My only question is if you can send/add instructions to add length to the hem before the fringe? I prefer to wear tops that hit the hip line. Suggestions?
