This is the Summer Breeze Kids Top! This cute as a button fingerweight child size top is perfect for that special skein or two of hand-dyed yarn. I needed a quick kids top for my little one for the summer, and this skein jumped off my shelf and onto my hook! And it’s a super simple top to make – perfect for a quick and easy weekend project!
You will need a 3.5mm hook and 250-950 yards of any finger weight yarn. I used the color Funky Monkey in Addy Socks Fingerweight 4-ply 75/25 superwas merino / nylon (463 yards per 100g) dyed by Brediculous Yarns (www.brediculousyarns.com)
For this kids top I wanted something my Maggie could wear all summer and be comfortable. So often I see little kids in crop top tanks and that just doesn’t sit well with me. So instead I created a simple short sleeved top. It’s a full length top, but because it flares out at the base, it’ll keep your little one nice and cool!
This yoke top blouse is completely seamless! You start with the yoke, turning your work every round. Add some length to the yoke, and then do a simple arm/body split. Once you’re past the arm holes and onto the main body, you’ll use stitch markers to note where to add stitches, keeping the counting to a minimum (that’s always a plus!). The simply border on the base and sleeve cuffs adds a slight girly flair without being too flowery.
You will need a basic understanding of the usual crochet stitches, slip stitch, single crochet, and double crochet.
