This is my first attempt at knitting a warm weather garment. I am quite pleased with how it turned out!

This is "Buttercup" by Heidi Kirrmaier. It was a lovely pattern to knit. And it's free! You can get the pattern on Ravelry.

I only modified the sleeves on the pattern. I simply knit them longer (the original pattern has cap sleeves) and then finished the sleeves using Heidi's directions.

Check out all her patterns. I love the flowy and simple look of the tops. I'll be knitting more, for sure!

PS The yarn is Hempathy by Elsebeth Lavold. Yummy yarn, people!

  1. Woman, when did you knit this!?
    You are a speed demon.
    So beautiful, and I bet it feels great on. I really liked Hempathy.

  2. vroom!

    I knit most of this when we were in Colorado. It was a really easy knit. And since it was relatively small and lightweight and full of stockinette in the round, I got a lot of it done just sitting around with the kids.

  3. This is amazing!
