This pattern is also a part of Knit Picks IDP. The pattern was tech edited and proofread by Joan Beebe.

Strawberry top is mostly seamless. The only seams are attaching straps to the chest band. The top is easy to convert into a dress just by adding desired length to the skirt.

The chest is adorned with a ribbon bow and a flower, and the skirt has a pocket in a shape of a strawberry.

Eyelet pattern makes this top look fruity.

Very fun to make, and very fun to wear!
