Pattern Description:

The Heat Wave is a pretty little top perfect for warmer weather. Wear it with a cute pair of shorts or your favorite pair of jeans. This knitting pattern is a simple drop sleeve shell with lace detail. The lace and color contrast give this piece interest and make it a great pattern to customize to your preferences. This top can be knit up with just about any material, but I would highly suggest a cotton or silk blend for added drape.
