The Alluvium Top

I love it when a pattern just falls out of my head as I crochet it. That was the case with this pattern. I started with a lovely yarn and pretty stitch, and this top just sort of materialized in front of me. The combination of Silt Stitch (sc, 2dc), double crochet, and half double crochet gives this piece an attractive texture, while the light yarn makes it quite wearable for the spring and summer months. And the strappy cold shoulder makes this top trendy and just a little flirty.
