I found this pattern through another website for...
Created By: T Tiel

I found this pattern through another website for crafters who were doing it together as a crochet along. Well, they started it last year and I loved the shirt and had to try it myself. http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60485.html



I was not able to get purchase the suggest yarn at my local store. However, I used Caron Simply Soft Limelight 9607,Caron Simply Soft White 9701 0041 and Caron Simply Soft watermelon 9604. Also, I had to go up a size in crochet needle because of crocheting tightly to get the correct gauge.



The only problem that I ran into while making the project was that the sizing ran big in the bodice and the triangles I needed to make larger for more coverage. Once I got the coverage I felt comfortable with I needed to compensate it when starting the bodice by decreasing stitches. I made the triangles in the largest size and came down to a medium for the bodice area. Also, I added a drawstring under the bodice to bring it in some. But overall I am happy with the way it turned out.



Everyone at work loves it. I will however, need to purchase a shirt of some sort to wear underneath.



I am not a novice crocheter, nor an expert. After crocheting for 34 years I am learning to follow a pattern without help.
