Today I will be sharing with you guys the first crochet garment pattern on my website! I am beyond thrilled to finally be sharing a more intricate (but totally beginner friendly) pattern! 

This top was inspired by my minimalist wardrobe. I love pieces that are detailed and easy to style. I decided I wanted to use an indie dyed yarn for this top when I was first designing it, that is how I discovered Less Traveled Yarn. I had never actually been to a yarn shop before so trust me when I say I was over the moon when I found such a gorgeous and soft yarn!

This pattern was tested by so many amazing makers, which allowed me to share 5 different sizes with you guys.
