I wanted a spring top with short sleeves that would be versatile enough to wear at work or during me free time. I came across a bag of Jo Sharp Aran Cotton in this cute green colorway and then inspiration stroke me. This pattern is really quick to knit because of the weight of the cotton. It is fun yet classic and can be worn in many occasions and many ways, even for a gardening day! The fake button band on the sleeves adds a little something original and a more classic look.
