While it is summer, my house isn’t being as adventurous outside of home this season, and you might relate to that. I’ve also taken this challenge to use what is in my stash and I just so happened to have some amazing Whims Merino Yarn just calling to me. As expected, it was perfect for this project. I highly recommend you jump on over to the website and put in an order, no need to leave the house.

The weather is starting to warm up so now is the time to start those fun summer garments. And this one is a relaxing easy crochet piece, perfect for practicing those lazy summer vibes while soaking up some sun. Plus, a little extra crochet time is just what we all need right now.

This top is made in two pieces. If you would like you can work the pieces together or wait until the first piece is done and then start on the other.
