Child's Sun Top Reviewed by Minnie Janse van Rensburg on 2013-03-18 ****
I love this pattern, quick to knit, made the ties longer, knit the bottom in maize, the yoke in ligt blue. I crochet small little rounds in dark blue for the flowers, it won't hook so easily on something as the lazy daisy stitch. Minnie van Rensburg.

I made this for my 1 yr granddaughter and it was long on her, more like a dress; but just darling. I did have a problem trying to tie the straps so next time I would make them longer. Still a darling pattern

I knit this in red with white "bursts," just darling. Thank you to those who wrote they would like longer shoulder pieces, I added a few rows to each and feel the piece is better for it.

This is a really beautiful pattern. So simple to make, and very adaptable. I was thinking about trying the top part in a moss stitch. I found that the ties were a little short for my two year old, but it was manageable. Also, even with the garter stitch at the bottom and a good ironing job, I still find the bottom can curl up quite a bit. Take that into consideration when knitting, and perhaps knit it slightly longer than recommended. I might make my next one with a few more rows of garter stitch at the bottom to help prevent this. Now I am going to try using the same pattern (but adjusting the width) as a dress for my four month old!

I knit this for my 3 year old granddaughter using the largest size (4-5 yrs). She will probably get two summers out of it. It was simple to knit and very quick - 3 evenings in total. I used the same colors as the picture because I love that combination. I would definitely make this again!

This was so easy to knit. I just love it. However, the ties needed to be much longer than the 4 1/2" called for. I made them 7" and they were much better. Also, there were no directions for the lazy daisy flowers. I found them on the net.

I knit this up in just a couple of days. It's quick and simple, but looks great! My 3 year old loves it. I used the same colours in the pattern for the flowers, but used Azalea as the main colour and it looks great!

Very easy and very cute. I made it a bit smaller for a 3-6 month old. Also added buttons instead of ties on top. Great pattern!

Very easy and very quick to make. Looks adorable on. I made it in green with pink and blue flowers with yellow centers.

I also knitted this top in the round using a circular needle. Then I switched to straight needles when I reached the armholes. Then I knitted both the front and back at the same time by using 2 balls of yarn. I used 2 colors of yarn - one for the skirt and another color for the yoke. The flowers matched the yoke.
