I went bonkers over this crocheted tank top when I seen it. When I stopped by the yarn store again, I bought all the yarn and made it.

This is a lovely pattern, isn't it!  And thank you for sharing!

I'm going to do this as a transitional garment for autumn.  I'll be using wool, and adding slightly belled sleeves using htr (US hdc) stitch.  It's also easily adaptable to toddler sizes  - I'm using an easily washable cotton/acrylic yarn in a lovely pink-peach shade to make a sundress for a neighbour's 2-yr old daughter.

This turned out great. I love the way the lacey bottom really grabs attention. And the white was a really nice choice.

Where do I find that pattern for this? It even resembles those sand dollars. Love it. It really is a lovely top.

I used the pattern from the spring edition of Interweave Crochet Magazine. I liked the purple in the photo of it in the magazine, but for me I thought white would be good, also. I love this pattern too. And it was easy for me to make. At least for me.
