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!
