My “Northern Shores” Women’s Top was inspired by the northern shores of Lake Superior (not far from our home). I chose the Mid Blue color to reflect the color of the lake and the top of the garment was designed to mimic the waves that crash upon the shoreline. I chose the main stitch of the garment for it’s “knit-look” quality and I designed the openwork stitch pattern for the top front and back panels to mimic a lace knit pattern.

This top was designed to be flattering on all body types so it requires minimal shaping to define a loosely fit waist. For a more casual look, tie the belt in a square knot. Or to dress it up a bit, use a decorative slide. Whatever the event or occasion, you’ll be sure to turn heads in your “Northern Shores” Top!

Although I used Red Heart Luster Sheen for my top, my testers used several other yarns that worked really well too. I’ll share photos of them soon!

Top is an A Crocheted Simplicity original design.
