I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 5 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year.View all patterns by designer (38) »
I love this top, specially to wear with jeans. Just wear your jeans and wear this top, and you will be ready in a second. Very light to wear and looks flatering for any body type. You can wear with or without camisole inside. And because you made this based on your measurement, it fits you perfectly. You can make a bolero or cardigan. You can make it with cap sleeve, short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve, or even long sleeve. All using the same pattern. You can even make your daughter the same dress for mother and daughter special occasion. The option is endless.
Since this pattern working from top down, you can try it as you go.

Note: Since I always like the clarity of Japanese pattern in symbol, I would like also to use those symbol into my pattern beside the normal english written instruction. You can choose which one you prefer, but I suggest to use both.
