Notes From the Designer:

•Cirrus - thin and wispy clouds - this top is a simple-to-make, easy-to-adjust piece for beginners to advanced crocheters alike! Made in our luscious sparkling Glimmer Fingering, this top is reminiscent of a perfect summer day with the golden sun peeking through the clouds, soft blue sky and white clouds. You’re sitting in a beautiful, still meadow, the birds chattering all around. All is well. You breathe in and feel a delicious sense of perfect peace.

•Cirrus is the perfect quick project to add a fun top to your summer wardrobe and can be made in a weekend. This top features repeating rows of basic stitches combined with rows of simple eyelets, making it quick to memorize and fun to crochet.

•Simple seaming creates an open shoulder design that can easily be altered for those who wish to make their tee in a more traditional style. Slit seams on each side can also be adjusted to your preference. This design is great for layering, or wearing over your swimsuit while at the beach.

•In keeping with the customization theme of this design, I included 8 sizes so you can find your perfect fit.

•Light and airy tops are always fun to wear in warmer months. I really like simple shapes that are easy to make combined with unique features. For this design, I chose to use the popular open shoulder look. This style is so versatile that you can wear it for a dressy night on the town or you can wear it to the beach over your favorite swimsuit. This is a perfect piece for layering with your favorite tank top as well.
